The following quote, by Anne Lamott, was the best part of my day. I have been guilty for far too long of allowing my imperfections to keep me from living life with joy and curiosity. How about you?
Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and youâ€™re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didnâ€™t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? Itâ€™s going to break your heart. Donâ€™t let this happen. Repent just means to change direction â€” and NOT to be said by someone who is waggling their forefinger at you. Repentance is a blessing. Pick a new direction, one you wouldnâ€™t mind ending up at, and aim for that. Shoot the moon.
