Cliff Notes from Your Mother as You Leave Home
If it starts to spark, remove it.
The bigger mistake is not asking.
Don’t wait too long to get started.
Drop every expectation that does not belong to you.
Always poke it first to see if it moves.
Sometimes the only method is inexperience.
Above all, be kind. No – be true to yourself. Also, kind.
If you’re going to nap on the sofa, for heaven’s sake tuck your
glasses underneath it so you won’t step on them when you get up.
Figure out for what you would walk through fire.
Walk through fire.
