Kid Wisdom

Today I had an awesome lunch date. Just me, and a friend’s daughter, who is 6. Dining with kids can be a source of great reminders for all of us. Here are just a few: Image


  1. Everything is interesting…take a moment to admire the light fixture, the people, the food.
  2. Potential friends are everywhere…smile and people will smile back.
  3. Ask questions…you never know what you will learn.
  4. Be excited about the stuff you learn.
  5. Everything can be a game. Everything.
  6. Talk more than you eat. Sure you are at lunch to quell the hunger but your brain is hungry too.
  7. Sometimes the important stuff needs to be repeated, relived, and relished.
  8. Be caring. Be helpful. Be kind. Be interested.
  9. Assume people are wonderful, because they are.

Have an Outrageously Happy Day!
