Young and Reckless, Older and Wiser: Your Dialogue with Your Younger Self..
Pain and Love from others...
If you could travel back in time and meet one person who would it be? You probably have several people as your answer but I have only one. Myself. I'd like to travel back in time and meet my 18 year old self. I'd have much to say about what lies ahead and much advice to give.
Should we all have this opportunity, what would we say to our younger self? Would we caution them to avoid mistakes we have made and advise towards things we desire now that we have years of experience under our belt?
I took a twitter poll of what people would say to their younger selves and some answers were common, some were unique but most of all they were revealing. Revealing the lives people lead and how their chosen paths have brought change, growth, regret and revelation. You can read all the comments here:
I feel these answers are relatable to people of all ages in every demographic but for a person in their prime, these answers could serve as a handbook or travel guide through life. For those who need to make adjustments in their lives, these answers may serve as catalysts or motivators to make those changes.
If you are reading this and have journeyed through life you may agree, relate and understand some of the answers. You may even chuckle or well up with tears.
If you are younger and maybe now starting your adventures listen closely to the words of wisdom that we older folks offer.
You will definitely learn a thing or two.
