Maturity

Our Loose Blogging consortium of Anu, Ashok, Conrad, Gaelikaa, Ginger, Judy, Magpie 11, Maria, Ramana and I, well those of us not on holiday or distracted by the calls of work, study or family concerns, turn our thoughts to the topic for the week, chosen today by Ramana.

Maturity

To make mistakes is human; to stumble is commonplace; to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity. ~ William Arthur Ward

Maturity is only a short break in adolescence. ~ Jules Feiffer

Maturity is something of personal character it is how one acts in stressful or difficult situations, because then a person’s true ability to react to a situation can be seen.

Each of us has a choice in life…..
We can go through life – with its challenges and hardships deciding we will smile and look on the bright side – and spread a resolute proactive attitude of optimism
OR
We can go through life – with the SAME set of challenges and hardships and share bitterness, worry, fear, doubt and despair.

I am not sure who wrote that, but I know which path I want to walk….

Don’t take life too seriously; you’ll never get out of it alive!
