In my last post I explored what 38 year old me would say to 18 year old me if I could go back 20 years. Obviously that's not possible... What is possible, and incredible productive, is to ask myself this: What would 58 year old me say to 38 year old me if he could come back 20 years?
Okay, forget the robot butler & time machine. What would 58 year old me say to 38 year old me? I'm sure he'd hammer home the need to get my weight down. And yes, I'm working on it. Granted I'm not putting as much effort into as I have in the past, but at least I'm doing something. I was going to mention this in it's own post, but I've cut out potato chips. For me that's a big deal. I love me some potato chips! I can down a bag in one evening easily. And despite the fact that potato chips are made out of a vegetable, they are not healthy for you.
You know... I don't have an answer for what 58 year old me would say to 38 year old me... When I was thinking about what 38 year old me would say to 18 year old me, I came up with those three things in seconds. But I'm not sure what 58 year old me would say to 38 year old me. Is there an opportunity I need to pursue? Is there a change in location or vocation that would benefit me? What do I do with this desire to be in full time ministry? Is there someone I should be investing into in?
Hindsight is 20/20 but my foresight is much less clear.
