If I knew then, what I know now. Sound familiar? I’ve thought this statement and heard this statement many times. As we go though each time door in life (20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and so on) and we go though each experience door, we become smarter. Hence the statement.
I also find it interesting when someone has face lift after face lift to look younger. Do we really want to be younger. I spoke to someone today who is in her 40’s. She said I would never want to go back(to 20’s or 30’s). Me neither. So why do people want to look like they went back to their youth without ever having gone back. Is there glory in this? Do you want to go back?
This conversation reminds me of the movie, Big from 1988. After the Tom Hanks character was going to go back to being a 13 year old boy, he said to the Elizabeth Perkins character…you can come with me. She said no, it was hard enough the first time.
