When I think of wisdom, I tend to think of the things I’ve learned and know. But wisdom from a mindfulness perspective is different. Mindfulness says that wisdom is about realizing we’re going to hit bumps in the road and that’s ok, hard times (and good times) aren’t forever and that’s ok, too,and even though we keep turning our hearts and minds towards kindness, generosity, patience, and compassion, in the end nothing is personal and that’s ok, too.

We’re all just doing our best, together, in this unfathomable world. That’s my best shot at a synopsis of the Three Characteristics.
