Once upon a time, in a far away kingdom, there lived a young girl named Cedrene. She lived with her parents, who were both incredibly wise and loving. They provided her with all the material things she needed, but most importantly, they gave Cedrene the most precious thing of all – wisdom.
Cedrene was an inquisitive child and loved to learn. She was always full of questions and her parents took pleasure in answering them. They taught her about the stars, the sun and the moon and about the world around her.
One day, Cedrene decided she wanted to explore the world and see all the wonderful things that the world had to offer. She packed her bag, kissed her parents goodbye and set off on her adventure.
Her travels took her all around the kingdom, seeing sights she had never seen before. She encountered all kinds of people, animals and experiences; some were good and some were bad.
One night, in a little village, Cedrene met a wise old woman. The woman told her the most wonderful stories and imparted the greatest wealth of knowledge. She told Cedrene many stories of how the world had changed and how the people of the kingdom had evolved.
At the end of her journey, Cedrene returned home feeling more knowledgeable, more experienced and more mature. She was so very proud of herself and of all she had achieved.
The moral of Cedrene’s story is that no matter what path we choose, our experiences will always lead us to grow and learn. We may have experiences that are positive, negative or a mixture of both and all have the potential to teach us something. Learning from our experiences is the greatest wealth of knowledge we can carry with us on our life’s journey.
