“All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” by Robert Fulghum.

By | April 21, 2018

At the top of the foyer going to our bedrooms or returning to the main floor of our home is a framed poster. The title of the poster is: “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” by Robert Fulghum.
Share everything.
Play fair.
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody.
Wash your hands before you eat.
Flush.
Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life –
Learn some and think some
And draw and paint and sing and dance
And play and work every day some.
Take a nap every afternoon.
When you go out into the world,
Watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Be aware of wonder.


Although I do not read this every day and live by all the things I learned, this poster is my reminder of the choices I have in life to be an ‘intentionality guru.” Bi-weekly Candace Pollock beings the series alive in her live podcast titled, The Intentionality Gurus:
Using the Science & Power of Intention to Become the Guru of You©. As her co-host an anchor for this show I am learning how to use my power, the lessons I have learned both good and bad, happy and sad, to be the best that I can be. I understand that my best changes day to day as well as, moment-to-moment based on the where I allow my brain to wander or intentionally bring my thoughts to where they are required for me to obtain satisfaction.

In the last segment of the podcast, http://mixlr.com/new-cleveland-radio/showreel/the-intentionality-gurus-with-candace-pollock-4618-4619/ (Finding Your Personal “Truth” Too) Candace guided me on tour to find my sad spot in life and my happy spot in life. My sad spot on that day took me to a time and place that brings me pain, however, since visiting that thought over the last two weeks I have noted that there is also learning and pleasure despite the pain. It’s like the last sentence in this poster, “Be aware of wonder.” I am aware that I can find something pleasurable in every life incident if I allow my thoughts to relax and see the pathways to the positivity that occurs from within.

Although I may have learned the majority of life’s lessons early on does not mean that I have not been influenced by my surroundings and the hub-bub, the noise my brain makes, forgetting or ignoring what I know is right. The concept of sharing sometimes becomes instinctively protective, and selfishness creeps in as a protective shield. However, to observers it may be perceived as not playing fair and hurting someone, this is unintentional. What Candace coaches is for me (and you) to continue to guide ourselves through positive thoughts to do the intentional naturally.

Today, Candace Pollock, Life Coach, will take us on a journey to, “Unpacking Your Thoughts.” I am sure the list of “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten will be part of my unpacking thoughts.
