Advice from Old People

The most important person in your life is the person who agreed to share their life with you. Treat them as such.

You might live a long life, or you might live a short one — who knows. But either way, trust me when I say that you’re going to wish you took better care of yourself in your youth.

Years go by in the blink of an eye. Don’t marry young. Live your life. Go places. Do things. If you have the means or not. Pack a bag and go wherever you can afford to go. While you have no dependents, don’t buy stuff. Any stuff. See the world. Look through travel magazines and pick a spot. GO!

A true friend will come running if you call them at 2am. Everyone else is just an acquaintance.

Children grow up way too fast. Make the most of the time you have with them.

Eat and exercise like you’re a diabetic heart patient with a stroke — so you never actually become one.

Maybe this one isn’t as profound as the others, but I think it’s important… Floss regularly, dental problems are awful.

We have one time on this earth. Don’t wake up and realize that you are 60 years old and haven’t done the things you dreamed about.

Appreciate the small things and to be present in the moment.

Instead of sending a text, pick up the phone and call someone.

Call your mother, have a conversation about nothing in particular.

When you meet someone for the first time, stop and realize that you really know nothing about them. You see race, gender, age, clothes. Forget it all. You know nothing. Those biased assumptions that pop into your head because of the way your brain likes categories, are limiting your life, and other people’s lives.
