Friday Thread: Advice you'd give your younger self

Maybe it’s the age I am now — in case you missed Wednesday’s newsletter, I turned 50 earlier this year — or maybe it’s the year that’s recently passed. Or, maybe it’s the progress (or lack of progress!) I’ve made in things like my running, my health, the goals I want to go after. But, it all gets me thinking.

One of the things I love about our group, and our Friday conversations, is that we have such a wide range of ages and experience here. We have people in their 20s and 30s, and people in their 70s and 80s (and above, I’m sure). We have people living in Alabama, Alaska, Saskatchewan, Poland, Israel, Tajikistan, California, Mexico and all points in between.

What I’d love to know from you is, when you look back on your life — however long (or short) it’s been — what would you tell your younger self today, from what you’ve learned all these years? About your health/exercise, about relationships, anything — especially if it was something you didn’t expect, or surprised you in some way. 😃 — Terrell
