That Which Has Come Before

That Which Has Come Before

We’ve been back east visiting family and colleges for Mina the last few days — which has been amazing — but one of the biggest reminders that has come forward for me is the importance of respecting that which has come before me.

During this trip I have visited older relatives and I’ve been to academic institutions that are nearly 200 years old. As I’ve spent time with both, I’ve become spontaneously in awe as I realize the weathering and experience the decades have brought them: The things they’ve been through and endured (the pain and joy), the things they’ve seen, the wisdom collected. They have been through milestones  (emotional, mental, physical) that are still ahead of me. And all of this deserves respect. A lot of respect.

It reminded me that often the best way to gain my own wisdom is to sit humbly in the presence of anyone who has traversed through life longer than me. There is always more to learn.

Miss you guys.
