We have, over the last year or so, developed friendships with those of different generations. We’re in our late 20s, an age in which it is easy to keep sectioned off. However, as time marches on, we have cultivated meaningful relationships with great friends in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and even 70s (we’re missing a decade).
I very much look forward to participating in a mentoring program in the near future. This spread of life experience has benefited my thinking in many deep ways. I now have an understanding that all seemingly “permanent” features of my life are, in fact, temporary. I know that everything can change today or tomorrow, and I also know that surprises are often what make stories.
My hope is that, when I reach the later third or quarter of my life, I am able to cultivate relationships similar to what I have now.
