Flawed and Fabulous – December 2014

Hello Everyone:

The other day, a friend sent me Courtney Walsh’s  (www.squeezingthestars.com) humorous piece entitled “Dear Human” (**see below).    I love this letter, especially at this time of year, because her words remind me of the beauty of our humanness and what it means to love as a human being: 

 it’s messy and crazy, it means crying and laughing, falling and getting back up, it’s infused with divinity and the grace of stumbling.

 All in all, this being human is about being flawed and fabulous –gorgeously so.  

Knowing that I didn’t come here to master unconditional love or some state of perfection but rather to keep showing up, doing my best and staying present and fully alive — is enough. 

This I can take into the holidays and the new year.  

This I can bring to my gatherings with friends and family and into my new year’s resolutions. 

It’s Enough . . . in fact, It’s Plenty.    

Wishing you the gift of “being human” and celebrating yourself as “flawed & fabulous.”   

Margie

* The Letter   by Courtney Walsh 

Dear Human:

You’ve got it all wrong.  You didn’t come here to master unconditional love.  That is where you came from and where you’ll return.  You came here to learn personal love. 

Universal love.  Messy love, Sweaty love.  Crazy love.  Broken love.  Whole love. 

Infused with divinity.  Lived through the grace of stumbling.  Demonstrated through the beauty of . . .  messing up.  Often.

You didn’t come here to be perfect.  You already are.  You came here to be gorgeously human.  Flawed and fablulous. 

And then to rise again into remembering.

But unconditional love?  Stop telling that story.  Love, in truth, doesn’t need ANY other adjectives.  It doesn’t require modifiers. It doesn’t require the condition of perfection.  It only asks that you show up.  And do your best.  That you stay present and feel fully. 

That you shine and fly and laugh and cry and hurt and heal and fall and get back up and play and work and live and die as YOU.
