After reading a plethora of blogs, there is one thing that stands out in my mind. Many of these strangers who share their words so intimately with me are wise beyond their years.
Does that make me sound like I’m an old biddy? Do you even know what a biddy is? According to TheFreedictionary.com, a biddy could be a few things:
1) A Hen.
2) A woman, especially a garrulous old one.
3) A nickname for Bridget.
Well, I’m not clucking and my name is not Bridget, so I’m talking about number 2.
I’m almost a half a century young. That may seem like old to a lot of people. Yet, I don’t feel old (well my mind doesn’t feel it, at least).
I would read various blogs on a variety of topics and when their words would strike a chord of truth, I’d look to see who the author was. To my surprise, many of these authors would be in their late teens or early twenties.
Focus and Strength
I’ve read more clarity in teen blogs than I thought possible. I certainly didn’t have the depth they possess until I was much older.
Does reading heartfelt blogs promote others to share their own experiences?
Maybe it’s because they haven’t learned to leash their feelings as so many of us have done as we’ve gotten older.
For whatever reason their hearts are on their sleeves, I’m sure it’s healthier.
So when someone mentions wisdom comes from age and experience, show them some of the wonderful blogs out there that exist.
They will be pleasantly surprised.
