Never Too Old to Live Your Dream (Part 1)

Dan Clark writes about his experience in college when he met Rose, an elderly student.  Rose’s vibrant personality along with her wisdom did not only appeal to Clark, but she was magnetically attracting attention everywhere on campus. Clark and the other students learned some very important life lessons from Rose such as the following

“If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don’t do one productive thing, you will [just] turn twenty years old.  If I am eight-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.”  This is how you would become more and more miserable.  

Just turning one year older doesn’t do anything.  It’s when you change for the better having progress in some area; that’s what you need to do.  If you just turn one year older year after year, with no improvement, no progress, and nothing to show for that year, you will not just be one year older, but you will be a little bit more miserable.  If that’s the case year after year, the misery will multiply and you will end up a lot more miserable...
