Ignorance is Bliss

I was listening to a story told by my professor in class tonight about how he assumed control of a large family company at the ripe old age of 25. He said "ignorance is bliss."

I started to think about that after I left. I wonder if that is why young people accomplish so much more then older people. They haven't learned how hard it is. They don't know what to expect so they try anything. They just go for it. Nothing can not be accomplished.

It left me with a thought that sent chills down my spine....

Have I experienced too much, learned to much, thought to much that I will never achieve anything of consequence?

Have I touched the pot of life and been burned too many times that I will never pick it up again?

Am I obsolete at 30?

Am I at a disadvantage because I can attest to most of this list?

Nope. You just need to get comfortable with who you are and what you are capable of. (Sounds good, right? As if I know what I'm talking about, right?)

Dude, I miss you.

I think that unfortunately both of us have reached into the pot of the fact that life, our life, in the big picture, is nothing.

So create and cause as much joy as possible, fight the man because he is a son of a bitch, and think about your fellow victim, Rocketstar.

I think that my life will be successful if I can graduate college and move out of my parents house when I'm 25.
