THE TOODLE LOO CREDO
-- Take time for yourself, then you can best care for those around you.
-- Remember to be kind always, no exception. The most prickly person you encounter needs it the most.
-- Don't judge others. Don't judge yourself. We are all doing the best we know with what we have learned so far in life.
-- Listen. Listen to your breath. Listen to your instinct. You will not be led astray.
-- Have the courage to take more risks. Mistakes may be made, but that means there is learning which means there is growing. A risk-free life is not one worth living.
-- Strive to live a life that tells a compelling story.
-- Everyone has creative potential. Not only the person who holds a paint brush or pen for a living, but everyone. Even the accountants and analysts. Remember that.
-- Start each day with gratitude. Even if it's just for breath. Running water. Lights that turn on with a switch. Blessings abound. Open your eyes.
