Repentance is a Blessing

It all starts right now. I read an excellent piece from Anne Lamott who wrote “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 NOT 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. Shoot the moon.”

 
Focus specifically on the meaning of repentance.
 
Don’t believe the hype. It’s not this gargantuan task. it’s simply rerouting and choosing the direction you want to be heading in.  This is the work of therapy. And it is the work of a lifetime. And it can start right now.
 
“Imagine immensities, don’t compromise, and don’t waste time. Start now. Not 20 years from now, not two weeks from now. Now.” 
 
Be here now,
