Having the courage to think with your heart.
Self-confidence gets better with age. This is due to the fact that you really don’t need to care what others think any longer.
By your 50s, you have a work record and basic reputation. The caution and good choices you make while young, will pay off later in life for sure.
If you “goof” while young, by this time, all’s forgiven.
Either way, being older gives you rights that were never afforded to you before.
I like to use adult “powers” to inspire young people to take a chance on being themselves.

Kids need to know, being different is a cool thing to be!
