When you’re a young soul
You never lose wonder for experiences – new and familiar
Old souls break your heart with their cynicism and obsession with tradition
But you always bounce back and shine on when your mind is young
Some people see the glow and may wonder where it comes from
Old souls project their nature onto you, but the real ones know what your desires are
Don’t let anyone age you before your time
Instead, choose one who will stay young with you
Or go it alone when needed
Loved this! We have to be brave enough to break the beliefs and standards set by the previous generations and just live our lives the way we believe we should.
Yes so true. 😊
Beautiful post, Sara. You have vividly highlighted the importance of maintaining a youthful perspective, even as we grow older. It is really disheartening to encounter cynicism from those who have lost their sense of wonder. But we must remain open to new experiences and maintain our enthusiasm for life, regardless of our age. Most importantly, we should surround ourselves with people who share this outlook, otherwise we should go our own way
Yes that’s very true. 😊
I am not sure this is entirely related to your post, but I have this buddhist verse posted by my desk:
If for company you cannot find a wise and prudent friend who leads a good life, then, like a king who leaves behind a conquered kingdom, or like a lone elephant in the elephant forest, you should go your way alone.
Better it is to live alone; there is no fellowship with a fool. Live alone and do no evil; be carefree like an elephant in the elephant forest.
Perfect. That’s pretty much how I live my life.
Absolutely loved it, especially this part – “Don’t let anyone age you before your time.” Brilliant!
Yes. It’s the only way to live. 🙂
It’s really so amazing to read your posts Sara! You’re just great and it’s so nice😊👍👍
That’s nice of you to say. I appreciate you reading. 😜
