Live Imperfectly with Great Delight

A quiet moment on a lovely morning in a cloud of fluffy duvet and cotton sheets.
Life feels like a bit of a whirlwind this summer. I wrote an entire paragraph about it. Then I deleted it.

We all get overwhelmed, and every human on Earth knows this feeling. There is no need for me to articulate a play-by-play.

To correct this, I'm remembering to be genuine, generous, and humble... trying to. Focusing on being constructive and investing in positive people, projects, and priorites is not an easy task. Especially when I find myself questioning everything and everyone.

I've a wonderful pencil etched with "live imperfectly with great delight." It's a fabulous phrase, no? It helps me remember that the stress, the worry, the fear... it's nothing to get lost in. I'm not perfect, and I never will be. It's time to embrace that with "great delight."

Doesn't mean I don't want to lose myself in the sheets some mornings/days/afternoons/evenings/nights. Doesn't mean I'm carefree and full of joy one-hundred-percent of the time. And it definitely doesn't mean I'm not questioning motives, methods, and meanings at every moment of the day. It does mean that I'm being more present and mindful of the subtle joys and lovely in life.
