Day 132: What I learned on my spring vacation.

This post is dedicated to my late mother and to my son.

What I learned on my spring vacation:

1.  Take the time you need.

2.  Trust in your natural impulses to heal, learn, and grow.

3.  Pay attention to everything.

4.  Choose next steps that will benefit you (and those you love).

5.  Everybody makes mistakes, including your iPhone.

6.  You get lots of chances to do it better the next time.

7.  Everything is changing and growing (even if you can’t see it).

This reminds me of another Emo Philips joke:

I was walking down the street and I thought, ‘My gosh, that’s Jimmy Peterson. I haven’t seen him since 3rd grade!’

So I go up to him, slap  him on the back and say, “How are you doing, you old moron? You drunken reprobate!” And I knock him down, and he starts crying, “Mommy!  Mommy!”

And I realized:  Wait a second. If that’s Jimmy Peterson … he would have grown up too.

.

8.  You promote whatever you perceive — and acknowledge — in others.

9.  Trust the wisdom of those who love you.

10.  Embrace all your feelings — they will give you “juice.”

And last, but not least:

.


.

11.  If you’re going to assume  ….

.

.

…  assume the best.

Thanks for reading, everybody.

  1. Nice list! Hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. I was told never to assume because I would only make an ass/ out of /u/ and /me. 🙂 I taught for a while can you tell from that? Used to get good laughs with it. Thank you for the post.
