Whether you are 20 or 60, you have been gathering, in your life, a myriad of experiences. Each day you check off on the calendar you have added valuable experience. Some days the additions have been minor and some days great, but each day has added something. Some of those experiences may have been wonderfully positive and others may have shown you the rocky footpaths of life, but each one has taught you something and served to make you the person you are.
Your experiences have lead up to this very moment that you are reading these words. They have lead to this day which you will be a joy or a challenge (or a mixture of bother) and to another experience. Each experience, as it has come along, you have dealt with. They may not have all been easy, but they have all, most certainly, been educational and have built your character.
Never has your experience been more extensive than it is right now – nor more valuable to you. What will you do with it? Now that you have accumulated so much, shouldn’t you use it to live a full and positive life – to look back and be so very grateful for all you have learned along the way – for the way you have “turned out?”
But it gets better. There are still more experiences to come. Use them. Cherish them all (both good and bad). See what you will yet become because of what has come your way.
