Yes, its true Wisdom truly is a thing you must have the patience for. It is learned through time, experiences, pains, failures, successes.
It is something you never stop learning but its also something you gain more and more of every day. You can never unlearn it. Once you have a bit of wisdom from an experience you can never lose it. You can choose not to engage and use it for future situations but you can never lose it. It is with you from that point on.
Wisdom is defined as the soundness of an action or decision with regard to the application of experience, knowledge, and good judgment.
This sounds easy enough but it is not generally something most people can do at all times. Sadly there are many things that get in the way of good judgment and most times those things are our feelings and responses to those feelings, our reactions to certain situations show not how much wisdom we have gained but how much of it we use during these times.
I used to as a little girl sit and watch people but not the Loud, overly loud and eager people. I would, for some reason be drawn to the ones sitting quietly in a corner, the ones who looked like they had a lot going on inside them but didn’ always speak or should I say the ones who knew when to speak. I could point out the “thinkers” in any setting or group. I always was fascinated by this because of course, it’s somewhat mysterious to wonder just what it is someone is thinking about because it could literally be anything. I also equated the quiet people with having more knowledge and wisdom. They knew when to speak and people listened more when they did. I got told I was too quiet as a child and it bothered me. It was the way people said it as if I was supposed to be loud like the other kids were. Always talking, always moving. There had to be something wrong with me. There wasn’t I just felt like I didn’t need to be loud and I didn’t care if others noticed me or not. I have never felt that way. I am most content when I am alone. It relaxes me, I can think more clearly, I don’t get wrapped up by others people’s energies or emotions. I am an actual introvert and always have been. I don’t try to reject others. This is just where I get most of my “wisdom” from. Where I figure out what I want from life. Who I am. Where I am going. All these things are important for you and for me as human beings. When you’re too involved in everything you never get a chance to see and feel this. Remember to do this often as you go through your days, months, and years because it’s actually very important for your mind, body, and soul.
