(1) Tell people you love them while they can still hear you
(2) Get over yourself. Self-consciousness robs us of being fully present to others
(3) Pay attention and everyone is the guru — especially the 6 year old boy next door
(4) Celebrate the people who keep you company. Thank them, daily, for their grace, patience, and wisdom
(5) Beautiful things don’t just happen, you make them happen. Work hard. Keep your chin up
(6) We belong to the earth. Lie in the leaves on the ground and pray like hell you’ll learn how to burst and bless and move on like they do
(7) Change your toothbrush more often and buy new underwear. It’s the little things
(8) “Nobody looks stupid when they’re having fun” – Amy Poehler
(9) Date pits do not go in the garbage disposal
(10) Sparklers in place of birthday candles make a mess, but are always a good idea.

“The ancients are right: the dear old human experience is a singular, difficult, shadowed, brilliant experience that does not resolve into being comfortable in the world. The valley of the shadow is part of that, and you are depriving yourself if you do not experience what humankind has experienced, including doubt and sorrow. We experience pain and difficulty as failure instead of saying, I will pass through this, everyone I have ever admired has passed through this, music has come out of this, literature has come out of it. We should think of our humanity as a privilege.” —Marilynne Robinson.
