Wisdom’s Focus

August 15 2021, 10am
How do we acquire wisdom? As a parent, I can’t quite figure out how to commodify wisdom for my kids. I want to just take everything I’ve learned, often through the struggles of my own life, and zap it into their heads. I know it doesn’t work that way. My wisdom, such as it is, was acquired because I failed, and failed forward. Looking back at my life, I realize my wisdom was hard-earned, from all of those times I crashed and burned and then got back up and tried again. When people were willing to wade into the messiness of my life to help me up, it taught me not to fear being there for other people when they fell. I learned wisdom when other people extended care toward me and my life.
