LIFE LESSONS FROM A NINE MONTH OLD
I just spent three days sequestered in a hotel room with a nine month old.
Just me and my beautiful granddaughter.
Needless to say, we did not discuss the state of the world.
I joined her world.
Here’s what I learned:
–Never cry one second longer than the pain lasts
–Dive into full blown laughter for no reason at all
–Don’t have any story in your head about failure. It’s all learning.
–Explore things by turning them every which way
–Know who isn’t for you and refuse to go close to those you don’t trust
–Take your time understanding a situation
–Grab for what you want
–When you are tired of something, just drop it
–Express everything with your whole being
–Sleep when you are tired
–Eat when you are hungry, stop when you are full
–Let people take care of you
–Love easily when you feel safe
