10 Things I Wish I’d Known About Life When I Was 21.

1. Thoughts create things

2. The only limitations that we have are the ones we place upon ourselves.

3. Sometimes relationships change, and people come and go. The only person I am with forever is myself.

4. We are what we eat. If you eat baked, fried or cooked things, you will feel baked,  fried and cooked.

5. Really great sleep is really important.

6. So is really great sex.

7. Don’t worry so much.

8. Yes, sunscreen, multi-vitamins and leafy green vegetables are good for me. (Thanks Mom!) I guess this means that other people may know something I don’t.

9. Nothing beats a good haircut, and workout clothes that fit right.

10. I am responsible only for myself…no one else.

11. Oh oh oh! An extra one…Yoga is amazing!

Reminds me of the Baz Luhrmann song about his address to the class of '99 about sunscreen. Oh, nostalgia.

and how old are you now, Amber — 25?

(sorry, I couldn't resist : )

no matter what age you are now, it will be interesting to see how your list evolves over time… what items remain, how their order changes, which ones get replaced and what they get replaced by… just when you think you've got it all figured out!

long life and fruitful practice to you
