I realised yesterday that as you get older, because of accumulated experience, thought and understanding of life, your perception shifts. Things that used to seem worthy of your interest/attention are no longer and new things - bigger picture things - yet often more subtle - come into focus. This is something that makes the experience of the sixth decade and beyond quite exciting. Your being, your entity has endured much, seen plenty, done significant things. You have ridden the emotional roller coaster of relationship that many times that you can now freely elect not to even get on it. You are slowing down physically to a degree but mentally and spiritually it's just starting to get interesting. It truly is remarkable and not something I ever anticipated or expected. You don't just get old. You cook in your own juices. You become a tasty morsel, indeed. A hearty meal. You're a valuable asset to yourself and others - if administered/accessed properly. You might even be called wise. But you will scoff at that. You know too well, we are all just fools. Beautiful, glorious, messy, crazy fools. You can smile more often now. You've endured.
