Big Juicy Creative Life

 Red ocean


I LOVE THIS!!!  Pick a new direction.

“Oh my God,

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.

Repent just means to change direction — and


to be said by someone who is waggling their forefinger at you.

Repentance is a blessing.

Pick a new direction,

one you wouldn’t mind ending up at,

and aim for that.
