An Epiphany Moment
Saw this quote from the site Soul Gatherings that turned my thinking around:
Old age, to the unlearned, is winter;
to the learned, it is harvest time.
~ Yiddish Saying ~
I suppose I am one of those “unlearned” and have used the winter analogy for the life phase of “old age.” “Winter” has a connotation of passive inactivity. But I had an epiphany moment when I read the above quote.
Harvest time – reap the emotional lessons, spiritual insights, and mental knowledge by sharing them with others. It can be through teaching, writing, volunteering, and so much more. Completely opposite from what I used to think and much more proactive.
What do you think about Old Age?
