Love the Mess!                                                                                June 2006

Have you ever wondered why to some people everything is a crisis, while others seem to dance their way through life? The ability to embrace change and 'roll with the punches' is a skill most of us only learn after being tested and forced to discover our own resiliency. After picking ourselves up and dusting ourselves off, we learn that somehow, no matter what happens, we'll figure it out and be OK.

Most of our frustrations in life come from resisting change or being unwilling to accept whatever circumstances we find ourselves in - not enough money, not enough romance, not the right job, not the right figure, not the right contacts, not the right lifestyle - whatever. We believe that things should somehow be "different" or "better" than what they are. But when is it ever enough?

The secret to lifelong happiness, in my opinion, is to be inspired by the journey, each and every day. Who will you get to meet? What conversations will you have? What beauty will you observe? How will you be tested? How will you respond? And what little piece will you get to add to your own life mosaic?

If your legacy as a human being is made up of every moment of every day you've been alive on the planet, and each day is a little 'tile', what will yours look like?

Life is short and unpredictable. Human beings are complicated and flawed. It's all a big mess, really! But it's yours - and there's not another one quite like it. Love it all - and make it your masterpiece.


Cheers and all my love,
