In our lives we have good days,

We have bad days,

But each day we are here

We learn something new,

And that is called experience.

With that experience

The bad days become less and less.

So remember that we have got to this place,

This place of age, by experience.

Our own experience.

So for every day that we arise,

Arise into the new day

Be grateful.

Each day is wonderful

When each new day comes to us,

As experience cannot be taught.

    Experience surely cannot be taught; that is so profound a statement to think a about. Thanks so much for sharing.

      one might well argue that experience is the mother of knowledge .. rightly or wrongly I'm gonna stand by that .. until some bright spark comes along and proves me wrong ... until then tho' tis a no brainer ... Neville 🙂

        That is certainly true Neville, without experience we would be nowhere.

        What have you got if not experience?
        A practice proven and is tried and true:
        Ignore it and you have incompetence;
        This a warning to me rather than you.

          Thank you for your kind words Dave.
