Enjoy Your Age and.......Chocolate!

Life is a process; never rush it! There are some 12 or 16 year olds that are trying their best to look 20 or 25 years old. I've seen young women or pre-teens today who, when asked how old they are almost inevitably answer with "almost 12" or "almost 16" in lieu of admitting their true age. Almost all of them have a friend who is older than they are - even if only a few months. I tell them this: "When your friend is 50 years old you will be able to truthfully say that you are still in your 40s." This may not make sense or even register with them what it means now, but they will when they are 49! Don't rush it.

It's kind of like selecting a chocolate in a box. We look at the wonderful chocolate and wonder if a piece is chewy, nutty or smooth and what flavor it might be. The chocolate is then popped into the mouth and soon forgotten. But the process of selecting that specific chocolate is rarely forgotten and anticipated with the next box of candy. Don't rush it; savor it!
