As 2013 gave way to a new year I was reminded of some important life-lessons. These were gleaned from being in close proximity to ten other people for a period of four days, ranging in age from three to sixty-one. I share them here for your reflection.
- The best rules are malleable.
- For most of us, the virtue of patience is acquired over time.
- Five-year olds haven’t fully acquired the virtue of patience .
- Neither have three-year olds … and that’s OK.
- Ice castles are not easy to construct – especially when the work crew is comprised of a three-year old and 2 five-year olds.
- Often, the journey (on-going process) is more important than the destination (final product).
- It is amazing how many different things you can do with a lemon.
- At least 95% of life is subjective.
- 100% of contentment in life is dependent upon attitude.
- People are more important – way more important – than either rules or things.
A blessed Thursday to you – and peace in the new year.
