  1. Oh Colleen! You always do something special but this one is a new high! I absolutely delighted in your drawings. Each one rings as true, but in particular, I loved Be happy in a crowd. You captured that so perfectly with the addition of color. I could go on and on! LOL!

  3. All good advice to take to heart.
    Really like the “Be intrigued” part as it speaks to how we should always remain curious, something that is hard to do in a world where we are constantly bombarded with information and its biases.

  5. I like it. I haven’t really thought about telling a great story with simple words. This showed me that a great post doesn’t have to be filled with colorful, hard-to-pronounce words to be good. I can’t wait to read more from you. πŸ™‚

  8. Great post. Love the one about saying something nice about someone you don’t care for–the image and text are perfect. Made me laugh and gave me the ideal image to remember when I find myself in this situation—which I do; too often! Thanks for posting!

    • Hhhhmmmmmm, well, first, yay you πŸ™‚ I’m a little jealous. Second, well, I can’t think of anything that makes me happier than playing hipster for a day (I mean, I can’t really pull it off no matter how hard I try). What would you like to be for a day?

      • It’s easy! As long as you keep on trying and trying…pretty soon you’ll be on your way! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’d like to be a mermaid, or some fairy tale creature for a day. But since that seems a little impossible, I’d just try to try to play a care-free type of person for a day.

        • Care free type of person for a day. Sounds like a lofty goal. To refill the energy reserves. I think you should try it. Maybe for an hour or so to start. πŸ˜‰ But I have to say, I’d like to hear about a mermaid or fairy tale creature attempt!!!
