I have been reflecting over my life currently, and I have come to the conclusion that I am lost in a forest. I entered the forest knowing right where I wanted to be, and the path is clear. Sadly now I need to find the right path to take to come out better on the other side.

An 87 Year Old College Student Named Rose

The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t already know.
I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned round to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me
with a smile that lit up her entire being.

She said, “Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?”

I laughed and enthusiastically responded, “Of course you may!” and she gave me a giant squeeze.

“Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?” I asked.

She jokingly replied, “I’m here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids…”

“No seriously,” I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.

“I always dreamed of having a college education and now I’m getting one!” she told me.

After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake.We became instant friends. Every day for the
next three months, we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this “time machine”
as she shared her wisdom and experience with me.

Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and
she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.

At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I’ll never forget what she taught us. She was
introduced and stepped up to the podium.

As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor. Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said, “I’m sorry I’m so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I’ll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell
you what I know.”

As we laughed she cleared her throat and began, “We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop
playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day.

You’ve got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die.
We have so many people walking around who are dead and don’t even know it!There is a huge difference between growing
older and growing up.

If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don’t do one productive thing, you will turn twenty years old.

If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.

Anybody can grow older. That doesn’t take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change.
Have no regrets.

The elderly usually don’t have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those
with regrets.”

She concluded her speech by courageously singing “The Rose.”

She challenged each of us to study the lyrics and live them out in our daily lives.

At the year’s end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago. One week after graduation Rose died
peacefully in her sleep.

Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it’s
never too late to be all you can possibly be .When you finish reading this, please send this peaceful word of advice to your friends and family, they’ll really enjoy it!

These words have been passed along in loving memory of ROSE.

REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY. GROWING UP IS
OPTIONAL.

We make a Living by what we get, We make a Life by what we give.

RIP ROSE ❤

Can I just start crying because “Rose” and “time machine”

God Man this is the best thing to read. I feel like I live the best life. Everyday I am truly happy to live on this earth.

I’m aggravated right now. Trying to show someone as stubborn, hardheaded, and difficult as myself their flaws. Knowing I have my own flaws. Things are difficult sometimes. Lots on my mind so much going on its time for bed.

I have been struggling emotionally lately. One of the most important people in my life leaves in 48 days, work has been a step away from unbearable, and school is out of sight out of mind. My solution to these problems was to sleep my days away, but today I realized what are you doing?! Snap out of this funk, and deal with your problems! After thought and meditation I have realized everything is going to be okay.

One of those day. Tomorrow is a new day, and all I need is to take time right now, and have a minute of patience.

Thoughts about life.

I spend so much of my life preparing for the next disaster, and because of this I have never had the chance just to live, and act my age. Most drink for the fun of it, and I drink just to sleep, and get through. Most are able to go out date, fuck, and let everything go. I don’t feel like I can. Don’t get me wrong. I have a good life, but I act much older than I am.
