Radical Silliness. (Happy New Year)

January 1, 2015
“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. Pick a new direction, one you wouldn’t mind ending up at, and aim for that. Shoot the moon.”  – Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird.
Here’s to a messy, creative, imperfect, and completely beautiful 2015. Happy NEW year, loves. XO

  • I absolutely LOVE that quote… it's so true. I spend so much time thinking, "Ew. No I cannot go to the beach today. Ain't no one want to see THIS in a bathing suit." WHO THE HECK CARES?! I wanna swim in the ocean, dammit!

    That's one thing I need to really work on this year. Embracing myself for who I am and start living. Who cares what others think. What matters is that I love myself and my life and am living it in the way that I want.
