I was thinking the other day about how I’m thankfully, a bit wiser every year. There are a lot of things which are no longer important to me, so I’m not wasting my time on them anymore and are now making progress in other areas. But I admit, that knowing doesn’t mean doing. There are a lot of great lessons I’ve learned, but even if I knew them back then, my brain probably couldn’t process it. My world was extremely small because I was selfish, like a lot of kids are. Some things just didn’t click. Some things still aren't clicking. 😎
You ever see that glazed look when you’re trying to educate one of your children on a particular issue? Then there are times when they do know what to do, but don’t do it for a variety of reasons. The fact is, adults are the same as kids in this regard because there are a lot of simple things, we could do to make our lives better, but we don’t do them. You with me on this? The thing is: “That which is easy to do, is also easy not to do.” – Zig Ziglar. Very wise words from an awesome man.
So, where am I going with this? I don’t know, I got distracted by the Army vs. Missouri game. Army won!! Anyhow, because it’s difficult to remember how stupid we were in the ways of the world, when we were younger, we can get impatient with our kids.
The traits of common sense and logic kick in more around the age of 27 for most people because of where their brain development is at that time. So, hang in there and just look at your children’s eyes to when the fog has been lifted. Then, proceed with caution. 😉
