What is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. --Anna Quindlen

Now that the afternoon is here, I have decided to get into my car, drive to the beach, and walk along the shore for about an hour. I will clean myself in the ocean water. Then I will drive back home and make dinner. Isn't it amazing that I have the privilege of doing that? Life will be hard again soon enough, and the floors and walls and clothes will get dirty again, but then it will be amazing again, too.
