1. Make friends with older women. I am so grateful to have a group of women friends who range in age from just a few years older than me to nearly 30 years my senior. Many times they have told me things that I did not understand to be true until years later. Their patience during this time of growth and illuminating wisdom has been an incredible gift. Also, thanks for not laughing in my face about all the things I thought were true about parenting before I became one.

2. "Parenthood is everything I expected and nothing I expected." A friend posted this on Facebook a few months back and there is not a passing day where I don't think of this statement. I think you can say the same about life too.

3. With practice all things are possible. With practice. With practice. With practice. For me it's getting on the mat. Asana. Asana. Asana.
