While listening to a TED talk I was reminded that life is a generous teacher; giving you multiple opportunities to to learn lessons and retake tests. I just happen to be one of those students in the classroom that had the miniature kitchen. You know. The portable behind the playground. You know.
Lessons it appears I NEED to learn:
- Leave the house EARLY! There’s never NOT going to be traffic!
- Stop pressing snooze. You’re not going to be magically more rested.
- Go with your gut! Trust your instincts… the FIRST time. Elephants know when it’s going to rain. You know that young man is going to waste your time!
- Be like the sky; constant despite changes. Be sure of your magnificence in spite of occasional clouds.
- If you break your word to yourself, what makes you think you’ll keep it when it concerns other!?
- “Let your yays be yays, and let your nays be nays.” My grandmother taught me that. It’s a shame that warnings don’t make sense until after you need them.I’ve been indecisive for almost all of my young adulthood. I can remember back in high school I couldn’t even use the iTunes star rating system. It felt too judgmental. Too final. Like Eminem would discover that I’d given “Lose Yourself” only 3 stars and take his song back.
I’m trying to listen, Universe. Really I am. But I’ve got this gosh dang banana in my ear.
I’m sorry you guys. I wouldn’t normally do this to you, but my coworker Inception’d me. It’s like The Ring, but YouTube. I have to pass it on, or they’ll find my body frozen like a bad AT&T Uverse connection.
(this one got a little weird… I’ll admit)
