Do you remember the 1988 Poem and book by Robert Fulghum “Everything I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten?  It’s a delightful and simple message about sharing kindness and finding work/play balance in order to have a fulfilling and enjoyable life at any age. 

I found this 2012 update and wanted to share.  Enjoy and remember these simple truths and never let the kid in you die.  Be Well my friend and Take Care of You!   Coach Lucy


All I Really Needed to Know for the 21st Century, I Learned In Kindergarten

Peg Chauncey Cramer

Friends come in all colors.
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Notice when someone is in need and help.
Respect and accept others.
Read every day, enjoy the pictures, and contribute your ideas.
Take responsibility for your actions, apologize, and forgive.
Have fun and play outside.
Money is to be earned, spent, shared, and saved.
Wait patiently.
Do your best, take pride in your work, finish the task.
Think, wonder, dream, believe, and care.
Organize your stuff.
Work together, share and cooperate.
Don’t give up, practice, and try again.
Brush your teeth, wash your hands, and eat healthy foods.
Reduce, reuse, recycle.
Apples are not just for eating, a mouse is a helpful thing,
and a keyboard can give us the world at our fingertips.
