Strategies learned as children can help us cope as adults I think. Please add yours!! I think we all could use tools to help us cope in our daily lives.......

Creative thinking
Fun in solitude
How to make friends
To rebound for rejection
Enjoying the simple joys in life
How to fight fair
Navigate around rules
To fight for yourself
To accept losses
To sooth oneself.
You can redirect your brain to happier thoughts by fun distractions.
You find your footing by pretending to be assured when your not.
To entertain oneself
To take on limitations or challenges in your path
To trust and love
To laugh at yourself or your own jokes
Being mean is less natural than being kind and in the end takes more out of you and others.
A boo boo heals quicker than hurt feelings.
You can think whatever you want, but you canít always say whatever you like.
That other people have feelings too.
Fairness is not always fair.
If you want someone to keep a secret maybe it better to keep it to yourself.
To tell the truth is less complex than to tell a lie.
That playing is fun that working tends be just that work.
That most adults do not want to bargan before bedtime, chances of you winning are poor.
A hug goes a long way at making you feel better.
Your parentís statements stay in your head and heart.
Sometime yelling and crying makes you really feel better.
That family and friends are your lifeline in life.
Giving really does make you happy and the receiver.
A good laugh makes you truly live in the moment.
To be forgiven takes a huge weight off you.
It doesnít feel good to be angry.
A simple gift like a picked flower from a neighbor garden makes a mom get teary.
The word please and thank-you are words people like.
Why is a simple question, but not always answered so simply.
Ask before you touch peopleís stuff.
Looking up at the sky at the night or day is a lot of fun.
To daydream is a wonderful escape from the present.

Dear Rita

You are such a deep thinker- and I am admire you for your talent.

My first thought when reading through your list was 'this would make for a great book"

I will create my own list. This is great food for the soul~

Thank you so much for all you do for us.

I agree with Rise'. You Rock Rita!)

Your list reminded me of two;
" giving really does make you feel better than receiving."

1.Learning to receive, not being too proud.

The second one, I learned in my 30's but should have learned when I was younger.

2, Worrying never solved one problem.
