That is an interesting question, so I tried to answer it for myself. My rewind advice to the nc of 40 years ago:
- CARE - freely, deeply, unabashedly, broadly, openly.
- LISTEN - firstest, hardest, longest, most.
- HEAL - spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually, relationally (self first).
- LEARN - dying gains advantage the day we stop.
Notice that all require a lot of attention. They can't be hurried; we kinda gotta be doing them fully to be doing them at all. Notice also that TALK didn't make the list.
I think I'll go ahead and get busy taking my own advice, despite my oldness. Never too late, ya know.
