Words of Wisdom

“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, 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 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? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.”

Words of wisdom from writer Anne Lamott: This quote comes from Lamott’s book, “Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life” (http://amzn.to/1nbPyzv).
