#29: Words of Wisdom to Be Cherished
Sometimes the most profound wisdom comes from unexpected sources, as was the case for this person when they were just a teenager. At a family gathering where they were discussing the church, their young cousin expressed disinterest in the topic. But it was the response of their 80-year-old grandmother that left a lasting impression.
Her simple but powerful advice – “Listen to everything, if you like it, keep it, if you don’t, just let it go, that’s how you grow” – struck a chord with the author and opened their eyes to new possibilities. It was a reminder that growth comes from being open-minded to new ideas and experiences, even if they are outside of our comfort zone. It’s a lovely reminder we should all take to heart, especially these days.
