Older, Wiser, Smarter !

As we grow older life teaches us a lot and we keep evolving as a person. A talk with a friend made me realize that as time flies by I am becoming more patient more tolerant and definitely less rigorous. Now that sounds like I am overloaded with a bunch of virtues which I believe cannot be the case. I have my flaws and am probably developing more but I am finally comfortable in my own skin. I am growing to accept myself exactly as I am without trying to be someone I idolize or admire. It's been a long journey here and hopefully in a few years time I shall look back and not think I was juvenile at this point as I do when I look back five years. But then again, the future is unpredictable and that is a wonderful incentive to keep living.

A personal theory I've toyed with is that we start out in life idolizing others. We try to mimick what works. By the end of our life, we hopefully will find true success, that is, when we're able to be completely authentic. No longer looking to others, but being ourselves in a way that we are morst comfortable with.

A strange question which I encountered as a kid many times was "who do I idolize ".. I now wonder if it makes sense to ask a kid that question. But then again as a kid maybe it is good to have a role model until you discover who you really are.
