“When everything starts going wrong all at once, it is to protect something big and lovely that is trying to get itself born.”
This quote popped into my head today, as it often does when things are going wrong all at once. It’s like a little bubble of hope that floats in and reminds me of the shimmering, iridescent possibility of what could be just around the corner. Things aren’t going wrong in my life, per se…but they aren’t exactly going the way I’d like them to. I know, wah wah, poor me. But I guess, in one area things have been going wrong for let’s say almost 5 years now…and I’ve been especially distracted by it lately. Let’s just hope that the longer things go wrong and the longer I’m distracted, the bigger and lovelier the end result will be.
P.S. Anne Lamott is speaking at Caltech in a couple weeks…do you have any idea how excited I am??
