#190. OLDIE GOLDIE – A Mini Rant

‘Old is gold’, my wise mom never forgot to repeat the age old proverb to emphasize the wisdom she has come to attain with age.Well, the rebel me always came up with the perfect retort, ‘Old might be gold, but new is diamond’. If I could paraphrase it for the current times, I would say ‘New’ would be as precious as strolling the street without the fear of getting COVID infected. Yep..proverbs do change according to the changing times. Don’t they?

Fifteen years later, guess who had the final laugh? No prize for your guesses. My mom did!

These days, I am the one dolling out the same words of wisdom to my daughters. Now, as my daughters giving the same bored-eye look that I used to give my mom, I can’t help but think if I am just feeling old or am I really getting old?______________________________________

For SoCS- October 3rd

To use either or both of the words “new and old” any way you’d like. Bonus points for starting and ending with either one.

Formerly a Software professional, I have been a homemaker for a while. My life revolves around my two daughters. Having started writing only recently, I just discovered what I have been missing all along in my otherwise almost-perfect life. I want to create postive content inspiring minds across all age groups.
