Note to My Younger Self

Have you ever wished you could go back and talk to your younger self – to write yourself a letter with the most important advice or life-lessons you have learned? If you could – what would you say? While we can’t do that, we can speak into our future and share this wisdom with others around us. Dee and I share what we would tell our younger selves in this episode. You don’t want to miss this insightful, honest, and authentic conversation about trust, wisdom, and listening to yourself.

We were joined by my dear girlfriend Lisa Sampson, with whom I’ve been friends for more than a decade. Lisa shared four specific key messages that she (and her closest Girlfriends) believe are essential to living healthier, happier lives at every age. Y’all, I took notes that day and when I re-listened to the show. These are things you will want to write down too and keep where you can see them every day.

Lisa and her family arrived in Marietta, GA, 16 years ago, after living in 4 other states. Her favorite part of Georgia is the beauty and peace that she finds just outside of Atlanta. She is grateful that she lives so close to Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield and can enjoy hiking the trails a few times a week. Lisa has worked at Weight Watchers for 12 years in the role of Leader, Leader Coach and Adjunct Trainer. She, also, volunteers at Rescuing Hope, an organization that is in the fight against sex trafficking. When not working Lisa enjoys “porch sitting” with a glass of wine, her bible or a fabulous book. But, she gets the most joy being with her two granddaughters, ages 5 and 3 years old. As empty nesters after raising 2 amazing children, and after 38 years of marriage, Lisa and her husband enjoy traveling together and
most of all just relaxing at home.

Resources Mentioned:

  • Romans 8:28 (NIV): 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
  • Titus 2:3-5 (NIV): Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
