As we get older, we often find that it becomes more difficult to do things that we once found easy. I used to be able to do a back flip with ease, but I think it's fair to say that my backflipping days are behind me. It can be hard to come to terms with the restrictions that age brings, especially when these restrictions leave us feeling less valued or useful. However, as we age, we gain our own superpower, wisdom.
Younger generations may think that they know it all, we once felt the same, the headiness of youth but the fact is, they don't, no one does, but we have one advantage, we have the benefit of hindsight and it's a wonderful thing.
This week we were asked to offer words of advice to the younger generations. It was quite difficult to think of just one thing, by the time you get to retirement age you have built up quite a catalogue of advice, but we all thought long and hard about the most important lessons that we have learned in life and offered the following advice. Maggie suggested that you always think about what you are doing, Hannah encouraged us to always be honest, Brian thinks that leading an active life is important and Danny thinks that we should all be good and enjoy life, all great advice and well worth heeding. We only get one shot at life; my advice would be to learn to take advice.
