what if

"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."

-Anne Lamott, via Brain Pickings


  1. Ms Lamott is obviously not a vedantin!

  2. ...just don't let it happen.

  3. Good quote.
    When you pick up your hat to go out the door, don't stare back at the party in longing. Leave with a smile and glitter stuck to your underwear!
