1 Laugh as much as possible. Find what makes you laugh and use that to your advantage whenever you can. As much as worry will age you, laughter will make you younger.
2 Eat what you are given and don't complain about it. Unless, of course you paid for it and it was swill. But, you need to learn to eat what everybody is eating just as soon as you can. You shouldn't really need concessions.
3 Make yourself useful. Be handy and pay attention to what's happening around you. Don't just stand there and stare, dive in. Lend a hand whenever possible. Ignorance is no defense on this. Learn how to be a very lovely (and helpful) assistant.

Now, go. Outside. It's gorgeous out there.

Who you is?

My photo

I love raindrops on roses and whatnot, but even more than that I totally dig finding dollars in clothes I haven't worn in ages, live music, social networking and search engine optimization, research, freecycle.com, homemade beer, home grown stuff, writing, talking, laughing, green movements, debate, dialog, dumpster diving, time travel, time-out chairs, psychology, meals that last for hours, pranks, astral projection, meaningful lives, the kindness of strangers, trains, trucks and tractors, cowboys, horses, deer, eagles, random occurrences, modern tragedies, small appliances, good socks and sturdy shoes, shiny objects, painting, playing stringed instruments and singing harmony, pulling perfect feather pillows out of the freezer on hot and humid Kansas summer nights, rodeos and county fairs, brokers, organics and authenticity, my kids, their kids and my huge extended family. I am a hugger and I probably laugh AND talk way too much.
