I Did Not Know That

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Back when I was young, I was convinced that I was pretty smart.... Not omniscient, but pretty knowledgeable about a lot of things...

As I age I truly am becoming aware that I was so SO wrong then... I had hardly even scratched the surface of things I OUGHT to know, much less the grand total of things that are know-able.

And the great thing is that I don't mind admitting it, because it means I am now teachable, at least I hope that I am.

"I did not know that..." is now one of my favorite realizations.

    Don't youngsters always think they know everything but I don't think thats a bad thing as It may give them confidence(unless they are driving and then it may be not so good). emoticon

    as Coach Wooden says, "it's what you learn after you know it all that really counts."

    oh yes! The arrogance of youth. I wonder if it comes from fear? Maybe we are more accepting of our inadequacies as we grow older? Truth is - I don't know, but I too am learning every day.

What fun!

    The problem I have is that I want to know and do everything too!

    The more I learn the more I know I don't know. There are some older people in my life who have forgotten more than I will ever know. And yes, being teachable is a very desirable attribute. emoticon
