One of the blessings of getting older is that we gain perspective on what matters vs. what doesn’t matter. So much of what we get all wrapped up in when we are younger is seen to just not be important as we get older. Those of us who are in a position of seeing things more clearly need to make ourselves available to young people as mentors so that they can avail themselves of our wisdom if they choose. Of course, that doesn’t mean they will listen to us, but that’s not the point. Our availability is the point.
