Learning about yourself by listening to others

I like to talk to people like this guy. He’s seen a lot and can teach me a thing or two. Photo by Yogendra Singh on Unsplash.

My birthday is coming up in a couple of months and at this time each year I become a little reflective. I think about what I know today that I didn’t know last year, or a few years ago.

A lot of what I now know came to me through decisions made in tough moments and accidents that were not expected. Other revelations arrived through subtle moments. Reading a book. Watching the news.
