Life is Messy

Another insightful gift from

:: Life Is Messy… Get Over It! ::

In man’s quest to conquer nature, our culture has
developed an unhealthy aversion to the natural
messiness of life.

Heaven forbid you should eat an apple that isn’t nice
and round and free of bug bites. Those get made into
applesauce so we never have to see their messiness!

And if our high-tech, Star Trek fantasies were real,
we could avoid the messiness of birth and simply
“beam” babies out of the womb — without a drop of
blood in sight.

Even if you’re a “crunchy” parent who’s not afraid
of nature’s messiness, there may be other kinds of
messes you abhor, like the messy ways children learn,
explore, and process emotions. Or the messy way *you*
grow through parenthood.

Today, whenever you feel bothered about anything, ask
yourself, “What ‘messiness’ am I resisting?” Are you
not allowing your *own* process to be messy?

Well, get over it! Life IS messy. 🙂

Let life’s messes remind you how good it is to be ALIVE!
