IMPROV CLASS FOR THE SOUL: I LEARNED EVERYTHING BY FIVE by Rachel Hamill

I learned everything I need to know by 5 years of age:  

  1. Painful things are WORTHWHILE - I was born and I don't regret it.
  2. FAITH - I will be taken care of basically - fed, cleaned and talked to.
  3. AFFECTION - we both like hugs and someone to lean on.
  4. Things make SENSE later - but BE THERE or you'll miss it, and it never will make sense.
  5. You have to PAY someday, better sooner than later
  6. There are INSIDE SELF things and OUTSIDE SELF things - as in I feel annoyed and uncomfortable inside; I need to look cooperative outside.
  7. I have to COMPETE - I have a sibling who is smart, and I need to be ready for school later.
  8. I have to get things RIGHT even if I'm slow - and it helps if when you get things right, you look like you always did.  It makes your parents look smart.
  9. Keep CLEAN - it looks more put together.
  10. I have CONTROL over me some - eat the rough stuff, it keeps you firm and on the go.
  11. Be patient, there is generally an opportunity later, and if not then speak up.  PATIENCE is waiting to find a bathroom.
  12. TALK and you'll LEARN a lot about the big stuff and the little stuff.
  13. All things are INTERCONNECTED - the positive things I did today will be remembered and appreciated. So will the negative things. 
  14. KINDERGARTEN is your first real JOB - follow instructions, don't mess up, apologize when needed, and ACCOMPLISH for both THEM and YOURSELF.
