“There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen
This time of year I am reminded so pertinently of the glorious messy imperfection of life. I see it in an amass of leaves on the ground that are so exquisitely beautiful in their array of color, but they make for a lot of clean up and clutter in the yard. I appreciate that they are perfect for composting, to renew the soil.
I take comfort in reality.
Life is made up of much glorious messy imperfections.
I feel like I’m one of them
And I continue to practice acceptance for that.
It takes courage to be imperfect.
I hope you’ll get a kick out of this quote by Warner Erhard:
“If you could accept that you are not okay,
You could stop proving that you are okay.
And if you could stop proving that you are okay,
You could get it that it is okay to not be okay.
And, if you could get it that it is okay to not be okay,
You could get it that you’re okay just the way you are”
