365 Project – Day 228 – What We Learned Today

Just a couple more important life lessons from everyone’s favorite Cadence LaRue…

1. When life gets tough and you feel like you’re mired in a rut so deep that you are afraid you’ll never get out of it, try doing something to change your perspective. Sometimes seeing things from a different angle is all you need to figure it out.

2. If you’re having one of those days when absolutely everything is going wrong, the only surefire way to turn things around is to put your pants on your head and dance. Seriously, who can be blue when they’re dancing?

Tonight’s 365 Project entry is dedicated to my girl and all her wisdom. You’d be amazed what you can learn from a toddler.

365 Project – Day 224 – Life Lessons

“While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.” -Angela Schwindt

Cadence is really good at this. On any given day, she teaches me so many important life lessons. Things like…

Sometimes you just have to take a leap and have faith that, even though the landing might be a little rough, everything will turn out all right.

It is important to exercise your imagination everyday. Cultivating a mind that can dream and create is the only guaranteed protection against boredom.

Finding beauty in the little things–a sky filled with puffy white clouds, the splashing of raindrops on the sidewalk, a freshly-fallen leaf drifting to the ground–just might be the key to true happiness.

Time spent hanging out and snuggling with the people you love most is always time well spent.

It’s always worth it to get your hands dirty.

Sometimes, the best approach is to just sit back quietly, observe and allow the situation to run its course…

And sometimes it’s necessary to stick your nose in and let your opinions be known.

Sometimes it’s cool to hang out with your Mom. Whether you want to admit it or not, she loves you in a way that no one else ever will.

And, she spent a whole lot of time wiping your butt and listening to you whine, so you sort of owe her.

It’s important to keep track of your friends. Every now and then, it’s nice to let them know how much they mean to you.

Today’s 365 Project entry is dedicated to one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. Thank you, Cadence, for taking the time to each me something new, every single day.
