Beginnings

Beginnings

Tunnel“Things everyone should know.” “Things I wish I’d learned before I was 20.” “Things I should have learned in Kindergarten.” I’m looking for a great advice book to fill in the many holes — the things I somehow missed growing up. Something that’s easy to read, an idea a day. Use it almost like a yearly devotional. I haven’t found it. So, “just for myself,” I’m assembling pieces of it. Maybe this is along the lines of “things I wish I could tell my 20-year old self.” , or “best advice I’ve ever received.”
