Our discussion began with each participant sharing what they wish they know now that they wish they knew when they were 18 years old. Themes emerged around the possibility of teaching someone what had been gained through experience. Experience brings authenticity to teaching, which helps others learn and grow, but ultimately students have to find strengths and values within themselves. Empathy was an important theme.
The group discussion turned to life milestones: turning 18, marriage, kids, retirement. One particular idea that resonated with the group was that people have the ability to recreate themselves throughout life and creates “texture.”
The conversation concluded with participants sharing what they would take away from the conversation. People expressed the importance of living in the moment, being mindful of others, making space to grow, trusting your gut and being bold, and being an active participant in life.
