So there I was supposedly working on these articles written by the students for the annual college magazine in, uh, not so hot English. Then I see this Twitter update by Pastor Rick Warren who has such a great sense of humour. It's funny and pert and gets me kickstarted on good thoughts about getting mellow with the years.
I am no longer young enough to be right about everything,
lost my idealism,
the fierce insistence I always need to be right.
I no longer see things in black and white,
reality is too complex
and life comes in shades of grey.
It no longer matters that I should always be right,
I'm happy now to step back,
to let life surprise me
and expect the unexpected.
A feel good post. Thank you, Pastor Warren.
