… you get the idea.
Because the stuff I write about is real, just like you.
There are no magic bullets out there to fix your problems.
You need to do the work yourself, and in the end, you’ll be happy that you did.
We all make mistakes, we just take turns.
I write about my mistakes, to help people realize that no one is perfect,
mistakes are necessary to make progress, and hey…
you’re not the only one out there making them.
Now read that last sentence again.
With that, I will leave you with one of my most favorite quotes, from the movie Chocolat…
“I think we can’t go ’round measuring our goodness
by what we don’t do, what we deny ourselves,
what we resist, and who we exclude.
I think we’ve got to measure goodness
by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include.”
