Older

I am older now.

Not old, for that would imply that I have gained wisdom that comes from age, which is not entirely the case.

But yet, I am older... because I see more clearly now the rhythm of things. Of how life often flows in cycles. Seasons. Changes. Growth. Death. Rebirth.

Purposes, which only time reveals. Stories now claimed because they have in fact been lived through. Attested to. The benefits of hindsight.

Years add perspective to vision. Experience lends clarity to decisions.

Old enough to know that not everything stays the same, and cherishing every single good thing counts.

A little more worn in, perhaps a little more tired, a bit less easily amused but still hopeful.
