Ripping Off Great Advice

Recently, a great friend of mine came back from an extended period in Central America working with youth in a number of different settings.  She told me about all the things she had learned in an ambiguous manner.  So, I asked her to tell me more.  And, without permission, here's her list:

  • Fear limits you.
  • Being embarrassed holds you back.
  • The world is wildly unfair, but that's no excuse not to do something. (My favorite.)
  • If you love something and really want it to happen, it will.
  • I will never speak Spanish like a native.
  • Friendship is extremely valuable.
  • Hospitality towards strangers is immensely appreciated.
Words to live by, I think.
