Wisdom Wednesday

The wisest mind has something yet to learn.” - George Santayana



I first saw this truck pass by me back in early August of last year. I still remember the moment. I thought to myself, "What a great photo this would make," but I was too slow to pull out my phone to snap a photo. Fast forward six months and lo and behold what do I see parked on the street as I'm walking home from work? The same truck with the same message: "Never stop learning." I've always been one of those nerdy types - you know, the kind that loves to learn? And as much as I love the message painted on the truck, I think what strikes me more is that I found the truck again. It took a while, but I found it.

I hate to get deep on y'all about a truck (of all things), but I can't help but reflect and relate. Sometimes you go through life and you become disappointed because certain moments pass by and you're unable to hold on to them. Then, later in life, if you're lucky the moment returns to you (though, not always in the same way). So what did I learn when that truck popped back up in my life? It helped me to remember that if something is meant to be, it will be. Don't waste time dwelling on things that didn't happen or things that didn't work out. If it's meant to happen... it will.

Ha, can you believe all of this came from a random pick-up truck? Happy Wednesday, y'all.

  1. You are psychic. I am certain of it. I was literally just thinking the same thing. It's crazy that I stumbled on the same words of wisdom that I was trying to impress upon myself. It helps seeing someone else say it too. Great post.
