Today’s Whimsical Quote

What if you wake up tomorrow and think this?

“And you’re a senior, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years (because your body wasn’t perfect); and 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 starting off into space like when you were a kid?  It’s going to break your heart.  Don’t let this happen!”

–Anne Lamott

This quote makes me giddy…you too?
