From Me At 50 To Me At 20

Dear Me At 20, Here are a few suggestions for your next 30 years: Show up. Learn how to be completely present here and now. Give your presence to people. That will allow you to have amazing friendships and relationships. Pay attention. You'll be amazed to know how powerful your attention is. Learn how to use it. Meditate, concentrate, let it expand and contract. Learn how to sense beyond what you can see, hear, taste, touch and smell. Your attention is a core power in this world. At some point see if you can discover where your attention arises from. It might blow your mind. Participate. Your temperament tends to put you in a more observational role, but that also sometimes leaves you feeling left out of things that you really want to be a part of. Go ahead and join whatever party is going on. Have at least one good conversation before you go home. Eat real food. You don't notice it now because you're still young but the fast food, the soft drinks and the junk food
