> I’d finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
> I would do less correcting and more connecting.
> I’d take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
> I’d take more hikes and fly more kites.
> I’d stop playing serious, and seriously play.
> I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
> I’d do more hugging and less tugging.
