Recipe for a Better Life

Recipe for a Better Life

A Story by Ginger With A Pen


-Family: Whether biological or not, a loving family is key to make a quality human life.

-Friends: Sometimes friends can be substituted for family in this recipe, and their ratios vary from life to life.

-Education: Once a human is off in the world on their own, education will be a big factor in what they can do with their life.  The more education, the better.

�" Emotions: A dash of Love, Compassion, and even Anger is okay.  Mix up the amounts of emotions as you like, for every human deals with them differently.

�" Physical skills: These must be taught to a human in its early stages of life for the best results.  Walking, talking, balance, etc.

**After a certain point in life, your human may begin to develop its own attributes, so be prepared for surprise ingredients forming**


�" Step 1: Make your human.  Don’t ask how.

�" Step 2: Nurture it as it grows.  Feed it, water it, love it.

�" Step 3:  Don’t cry every time your human passes a Life Milestone.  Don’t cry.  Don’t do it.

�" Step 4: Encourage your human to make friends and do things out of their comfort zone.

�" Step 5: Comfort your human when they make mistakes, and let them know that everyone does.

-Step 6: When your human reaches 18, accept the fact that they can now be an independent adult human and control their own life if they choose.

�" Step 7: Let your human go.  It’s sad, but you just have to do it.  Make sure to keep frequent contact via phone calls, letters and visits.

Congratulations, you can now go make a human!
