The Fishing Trip
Old people are still a unique source of advice for living for younger people.
Some questions for your elders:
What are some of the most important lessons you feel you have learned over the course of your life?
Some people say that they have had suffering and adversity or stressful experiences but they have learned important lessons from them. Is that true? Can you give examples of what you learned?
As you look back over your life, do you see any “turning points”; that is, an event or experience that changed you over the course of your life or set you on a different track?
What’s the secret to a happy marriage?
What are some of the important choices or decisions you made that you have learned from?
What would you say you know now about living a happy and successful life that you didn’t know when you were twenty?
What would you say are the major values or principles that you live by?
And yes us elders can learn from the younger people in our lives as well!
