"You have to make mistakes to find out who you aren't. You take the action, and the insight follows: You don't think your way into becoming yourself" -- Anne Lamott
The Universe sent that quote into my email box yesterday. Well, not the Universe, but Oprah, so close enough.
The idea of giving oneself permission to make mistakes. To fail, even. I love it! Taking that leap of faith without worrying about falling flat on your face. Because if you do, well, you've taken a step toward finding out who you aren't, which after a few more steps can lead you down the path toward who you actually are.
Do you sometimes find yourself over-thinking? In pursuit of perfection, do you ever stand with your feet rooted firmly to the ground, frozen with inaction, afraid to take a step forward? I know I sure do!
What would happen if instead of thinking, we simply stepped forward? Put one foot in front of the other?
What would you like to step into today?
