This is not so much about living with the wrinkles, the changing metabolism, and the creaky joints as it is about great advice that our older selves would have loved to give our younger selves. While it’s not farming or ranching specific, we think it’s got a lot of great advice for making life easier. And since that’s what we’re all about here at On Pasture – helping make life easier – we wanted to share this with all of you.
Then, if you’ve got some great advice that you wish you’d been able to give your younger self, how about passing it along in the comments below? Just think of something,
And to get you started, here’s some advice we would give our younger selves:
Dear 55 year old,
Keep on writing. It gets easier, and people really do appreciate it.
A 56 year old
Dear 41 year old,
Don’t sweat the small stuff and your hair will grow back.
Lots of Love,
A 43 year old
This is a going away gift from CBC’s radio show “Wiretap.” For 11 years, Canadians, and some Americans, have enjoyed listening to a weekly half hour of conversation and stories from the point of view of Jonathan Goldstein.
