In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Baggage Check.”
We all have complicated histories.
When was the last time your past experiences informed a major decision you’ve made?
With so many decisions of my past, I always recall my past to assist in my decisions for today and into my future.
My most recent decision centered on lunch. The question or dilemma I was confronted with was, should I eat a healthy lunch or order something that will cause me some form of gastric harm later in the day or further into my future.
I appealed to my wisdom of the past and many retirees I know who suffered hospital stays wishing they would have used their wisdom to provide the correct and informed decision.
With wisdom in mind, I ordered a dark green salad with seafood, drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, a 20-ounce glass of lemon infused water and an oatmeal raisin cookie as my treat.
Life’s historical experiences should always be considered when deciding upon the present and future, because wisdom versus temptation, is the true battle.
Youth and age are a gift. Wisdom comes to those who conquer life’s obstacles and temptations.
