Life’s too short.
Bury your little cousin in the sand. Bury yourself in the sand.
Once in a while, eat dessert first.
Find your great-aunt’s make-up. Put it on your cousin. Put it on your other cousin. Do this without said great-aunt’s permission.
Relish, not dread, family parties. Ask each cousin’s mommy if it’s okay you have a cupcake. They don’t have to know that it is one cupcake per mommy. It’s quite simple actually. Four cousins equals four cupcakes.
People watch at your local farmer’s market. Ooh and ahh over pretty things.
Try new things. Try new places. The worst that could happen is you don’t like it and you just try something else.
Live a modest life so when it is time to step outside of ritual and routine, you can really go all out.
