Thanks so much Leah…I love everything about this journal!
Isn’t it the moment of most profound doubt that gives birth to new certainties?
Perhaps hopelessness is the very soil that nourishes human hope…

Ten Rules for Being Human
by Cherie Carter-Scott
|1.||You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.|
|2.||You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.”|
|3.||There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”|
|4.||Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.|
|5.||Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.|
|6.||“There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”|
|7.||Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.|
|8.||What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.|
|9.||Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.|
|10.||You will forget all this.|
“head over heels”

“Her job was to turn everything upside down to see what might fall out.”
- David Leitch
I dare each of you to gain a new perspective of something that is utterly familiar: sit in a different chair in your living room, drive a different way home from work or look at your face in the mirror with one eye closed. Better yet…go outside, lie in the grass and look up toward the sky…and tell me what you see!
