Your True Age Is Determined By Your Mental Attitude, Not The Years You Have Lived.
The American clergyman and author Tyrone Edwards said:
"Age does not depend upon years, but upon temperament and health.
Some men are born old, and some never grow so."
No doubt you’ve known teenagers who were old before their time and seventy-year-olds who had the temperament and enthusiasm of those discovering the wonders of life for the very first time.
It is all a matter of attitude.
As you grow and develop, make sure your experience is directed toward the acquisition of wisdom, not the acceptance of cynicism.
If you find it difficult to keep an open mind because of previous experiences, remind yourself that you’re dealing with different people, that conditions have changed, or that because you are older and wiser, your chances of success are greater than in the past.
