Go Deeper... and Live a Big, Juicy Life

LET GO OF PERFECTIONISM (Anne Lamott)

"Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people," best-selling author Lamott writes in her classic "Bird by Bird."

That inner voice telling you you're not good enough "will keep you scared and restless your whole life if you do not awaken and fight back."

And how do you fight back? Make a lot of mistakes, she writes.

"Put something on your calendar that you know you'll be terrible at, like dance lessons or a meditation retreat."

Don't be so strung out on perfectionism and people pleasing that you forget to have a big, juicy creative life.

What if 2018 is the year you start walking without distractions, live in the present moment and give up your need to be perfect; the year you resolve to see where enthusiasm, curiosity and grace take you?

"The enso contains the perfect and imperfect; that is why it's always complete." -- Kazuaki Tanahashi
