What I’ve Learned, 2011 Edition

  • I am not a perfect person.  I’ve done foolish things, self-destructive things, and I have many days where I’m ruled by ego or just want to spend the day in bed.
  • Curiosity is a driving force.  I’ve written about this before, but I really do believe that all the best lives come from curiosity.
  • Ego is an illusion. “ME” is an illusion.
  • Talking about it beats not talking about it. This one is about relationships.  Often there’s scary
  • Stepping into the scariness of connecting and being vulnerable is the same as living, and always worth it.
  • “Good” experiences provide Joy, “bad” experiences provide data.
