Notes on Adulthood: July 26

What I learned about being an adult this week

Every day we learn something... making most of these lessons is how we keep growing...

1. Always always always proofread sympathy cards.

2. It sounds silly but be nice to strangers. Today at the grocery store, the cashier said, "Thank you for being nice to me". There is a life lesson in there somewhere.

3. If you are in a relationship where you are separated sometimes, it is invaluable if you can make each other laugh. Really laugh. Laugh so hard you accidentally snort when you're talking on the phone kind of laugh.

I asked my husband for a fourth thing, something he learned and...

4. Coffee can only keep you awake for 22 hours.

What about you? What did you learn this week?

  1. Excellent advice and observations. I love the concept behind "Welcome to Adulthood". I am following so I can keep up with your posts and will return to rummage through the archives.

  2. What we learned this week: Dogs like olive oil on their food

  3. Recycling a pizza box does not automatically qualify as an environmental hero :-)
