10 Things

Inspired by Sarah Kay - watch her TED talk or other videos of her spoken word poetry.

10 things I should have learned by now:

1. It's not always my fault.

2. Learning anything worthwhile will involve failure.

3. My friends still care about me - might even laugh -  when I'm grumpy.

4. Wisdom can come from unexpected sources.

5. When I think I'm on top of it, my feelings can leap up and surprise me.

6. It always gets better.

7. It might get worse first.

8. I'm not perfect but I am ok.

9. Older is a number - wisdom, gracefully, bucket list and incapacity are incidental.

10. Love is always an option.
