Touching the Trees Journal

1. Self-esteem is really great birth control.

2. Longing for love won't make it magically appear.

3. Fixing yourself works better than trying to fix someone else.

4. Giving is better than receiving, unless you never get anything back...then it's worse.

5. Your stomach never lies. It tells you when you're hungry, full, anxious, and scared. Especially listen to anxious and scared.

6. You can always find financial freedom by chasing your passion. You can't always find your passion by chasing money.

7. Kids are more emotionally rubbery than we give them credit for.

8. Almost every decision, short of killing someone, has a work-around if you change your mind.

9. Experiencing is better than picture-taking. Doing both is ideal.

10. You may not be compatible with someone whose breath stinks.

Thanks so much Babygirl and Madly! It came about because I was working with a woman who wanted to know what I know now that I'm divorced. She wanted to know the mistakes I made and the lessons I learned. Although not all of these pertain to divorce, her questions got me thinking about what I wish I'd known.

Thanks for reading!
