  1. The thing I try to take most seriously about myself is who I’m becoming. Other things, like saving face, deserve less seriousness than I sometimes give it.

  2. I would agree with this. I have started taking myself more seriously in terms of what I model for my children and what I believe I can contribute to the world. I have started to take myself less seriously when it comes to what others think of me. Way less identity management and way more authenticity. The older I get, the more I realize everyone is a sloppy mess in one way or another and it takes too much energy to convince people otherwise.

  3. Since I had a baby I started taking my happiness project very seriously, if I am happy I can project that happiness to my daughter. I started taking myself less seriously about our clean apartment or my once manicured nails…but I started taking myself more seriously about not keeping clutter or mess around the apartment.
