Wisdom ~ Not for the Lily-Livered

thoreau

Wisdom is tricky.  It’s garnered from experience.  Failing and falling are excellent teachers.  You learn what works and what doesn’t.

Wisdom is also about serenity.  It’s about courage and acceptance.  It’s about understanding how life works.  It’s about changing or staying the same.

Wisdom knows that you can try too hard.  Wisdom knows if you must jump through one  hundred flaming hoops to make something happen, that’s life speaking to you of futility.  Wisdom understands timing.  Sometimes wisdom says, “wait” and other times wisdom says, “no.”  The most important thing to remember about wisdom is this: You have to listen for it.  THEN you have to follow what wisdom tells you.  If you miss these two steps, you might as well not speak of wisdom. You aren’t ready for wisdom.

Wisdom listens. Wisdom watches.  Wisdom learns. Wisdom understands.

Wisdom is the result of perseverance.  You pay for it in blood, sweat and tears.

Wisdom:  Well worth the price.  Not for the faint of heart.
