Life is Messy

    c354w Life is Messy“What are you going to do? Everything, is my guess. It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications.” ~ Nora Ephron, Screenwriter (1941-2012)

    “Why, when we know that there’s no such thing as perfect, do most of us spend an incredible amount of time and energy trying to be everything to everyone? Is it that we really admire perfection? No — the truth is that we are actually drawn to people who are real and down-to-earth. We love authenticity and we know that life is messy and imperfect.” ~ Dr. Brene Brown, Scholar

    “Real life really is kinda incredible; the stories from people’s actual lives defy credibility. People’s lives are messy, humans are messy, and they’re flawed.” ~ Lynn Shelton, Director

    “Let me back up a little and tell you why I prefer writing to real life: You can rewrite. A novel, for example, can be cleaned up, altered, trimmed, improved. Life, on the other hand, is one big messy rough draft.” ~ Harlan Coben, Writer

    “One of the reasons people like romances is that they’re artificially shaped to give a pattern and meaning. It’s not as messy as everyday life or as difficult or thorny.” ~ Melissa Pritchard, Writer

    “Embrace the Chaos.” ~ Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Author

    “Life is messy, true. So we can either spend our time trying to clean it up — which is a losing battle — or we can embrace the chaos and see where that leads.” ~ Tana Bevan, Writer, Doodler, Encourager

    Here’s to being fabulously flawed Tana, I embrace it these days and have stopped trying to please others all the time. Ageing has granted me the permission to be just me, I have discovered.

    Clapping and cheering for you Kath! So glad you’ve given yourself permission to be you. Woo-hoo!
