I see youLifestyle, Wisdom | August 16, 2013
By Bev Wilkinson
I was chatting to a senior and she told me there comes a time in your life that you become invisible.
Suddenly your not there and people don’t see you, maybe because the blinkers have been taken off my eyes but I asked how? But I can see you?
She told me sometimes she could be physically there but ignored, people don’t think she is anyone special just a little old lady.
Then pointed at me and said one day it could be you.
I thought this was really sad, this was a lady that had achieved so much she had taught and helped pave the way for generations to succeed in life.
This was a lady who had a wicked sense of humor and so much still to share.
I am glad that I had the ability to get to know her and see beyond the old lady mask.
Sometimes we forget the oldies lived a life where they were young, they loved, they taught, they travelled and most of all they gained knowledge, which should be shared.
Maybe my dream is big but I want to make every senior feel like a star and make younger generations see.
Just like I have.
