Okay friends! My March Motto is as follows: Everything worth doing is not worth doing well. Perfect is the enemy of done. Good enough is the friend of done. In sum: perfect is our enemy and good enough is our friend.
We need to do it and be done with it.
So, here I am. Going to try to say something every day, good, perfect, or otherwise!
Ash Wednesday is today, and it's one of my favorite church observances.
Earlier today I had a funeral, and on the casket, when I poured sand in the form of a cross, I said, "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust."
Tonight, I will form the shape of the cross on living people's foreheads and remind them that they are dust, and to dust they shall return.
I value the humility of Ash Wednesday, the perspective that it gives.
We are mortal; we are dust; we can do amazing and special things, but we still can die. And that is okay.
