CGP Ep337 99 Years of Perspective

This could be my favourite episodes I have recorded over the past 6 years. I often share with you conversations I record with my mentors. Well it doesn’t get much better than this! I was speaking to my Nana who is 99 years old. The conversation was so impactful I asked her if I could quickly hook up my podcast equipment and record the rest of our conversation. This is a woman who lived through World Wars, the decade long Dust Bowl drought while living on her family farm on the Canadian Prairie, death of her husband, birth of her 3 children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and now great great grandchildren.  She saw the first car in her community drive by while on she rode her horse home from school that day. Saw the radio get replaced with the TV and the computer get replaced by the smartphone that she was speaking to me through that day. She has seen it all! To summarize our conversation, she shared the following. The pain people feel today is a pain based on life not meeting their expectations. When you are in a drought on the prairie with no food, no water, no heat and no entertainment for a decade you expect nothing other than life being hard!  Then you spend the rest of your life with life meeting your expectations of it being exactly that!  The easier life gets the less enjoyment you get out of it. People seek hobbies like baking and gardening but in the 30’s you did those things to survive. You didn’t need to exercise because life was exercise. You ate for fuel not flavour. The YingYang of life was BIG! Big love and big heartache. Big joy and bigger pain. Technology made phone calls easier but mean less. A beautiful handwritten letter was replaced with an emoji in a text. People replaced face time with screen time which they named FaceTime. 
You have to listen to this!
