Yes, every bit this: “By this time it’s safe to say we’ve experienced failures and successes and hopefully, these failures would have taught us a thing or two about being humble; a thing or two about facing life with some purity; a thing or two about raising a knowing eyebrow”.
By mid-life we have grown in confidence, and hopefully not arrogance. WE have the ability to question because we are wiser, and we even unwittingly call bull when necessary. We have failed, we have succeeded, and most importantly we have grown. Smiling. Thank you.
