trying to live save might robbed me of joy and of course never worked out very well for me i planned all right months ahead of time as though life didn't have a will four mind of her own my vacuumed every day major everything was put back in its place teens come for high water would not be intrude upon and still i did not feel safe and happiness eluded me i control my eating sometimes been urging and at and at other times only permit myself to eat at least one hour passed the horrible sick feeling in my stomach that erupted in subsided again i panicked if i was travelling and there was no swimming pool near by because if i didn't put my schedule keep to my schedule then who knows what kind of mayhem might be unleashed upon the world i read all the how to books knowing that if i could just hunt down the right seven set formula them all it would be well i performed in jordan
state up late into the night checking of lists and boxes because sleep was subservient to order and still people died and i can keep up and i saw was the multitude messy ways i was feeling the phones you'll rang bringing sad tidings a yielded my kids beside myself to sleep real life is messy here's a beautiful clincher some of the most amazing gifts of my life have come things to improve in the more still moments where i dare to give myself freedom in space to hear things and then job i jumped on a bus and landed cross country and a base laundry room the greyhound i lost my luggage and i need a wash my one change of clothing i met me husband down there and we a year later his ten years older than me west again and we didn't speak the same language he was pretty basically what i needed each of our children
and has brought with them wrapped up tight in that little bundle of what the heck am i doing new challenges and stretching and grace i have jumped on planes in practice telling the truth and stepped out upon the water when i was terrified of drowning and starving to be set free of the chains that kept me mired in anxiety and obsessive cleaning and never good enough ever good enough i know you hear me i'm teaching the script and slowly learning a practice improv happiness found in the messy piece in the midst of the storm man alive that is far bigger and scarier and more beautiful than my perfectly laid plans and tidy well ordered home i am choosing space and freedom to listen me living with purpose no longer means living perfectly safely then it must have all the answers and that my value lies in my ability to perform i think maybe that the road to happy begins with improv staring fear in the face
mingling with people who make me a little uncomfortable getting dirty making mistakes risking rejection feeding my body nursing my soul offering others the same messy grace and space to be imperfect a beautiful that ninety myself the go to loving myself begins with improv because no matter how hard i tried to show up worthy and acceptable i fall short but when i receive the freedom and space to hear things i hear that i am loved i am beautiful i am gift it i am artwork i am enough i wanted to die to disappear to curb small and go to sleep and never wake again lived much afraid and despondent and that is not really living at all no amount of declaring
dusting or dieting could fix me but what if i never needed to be fixed not all art compels us because it is honest in real when we get up close we see texture and imperfection and muddy color when we stepped back with space and freedom to listen and look we see with new eyes was we wonder in beauty in story the oh to truly living begins with improv driving through the mountains we are on each and every time the blue green water sparkle and dance majestic peaks are still covered with snow midsummer dear and bear grace along the edges of the road that man crafted all smooth and orderly but we pull over and step out of the safety of our car we see this'll and dirt mingled in with a wild flowers where's the mountain smothered people not long ago in an avalanche of rock and snow don't get too close members will not be far behind it isn't it
really safe or all beautiful after all it is in perfection that draws us to sit and stare it isn't beginning middle and end that cause us to be changed by the story the artist ribbed across his canvas it is the messy the heartbreak and hope the uneven leinster anger in the rough peaks and valleys the mysterious smile he makes us feel we feel alive maybe there isn't just one road too happy maybe one let go of the script and veer off path challenge status quo and take the road less trodden we will find what we are looking for maybe gold at the end of the rainbow but following the rainbow that matters joy in a messy journey maybe the road to happy is not comfortable men easy involves plain old hard work murky swamps and scratchy branches and deep dark valleys are we must find a way to traverse the girl hungary and cry
an encounter challenges that only a year ago we couldn't have survived we may bullies and kindred spirits along the way and as we walk we grow stronger our eyes in our open our breathing slows and we realise is tat we are only just now starting to live and all of a sudden we realise that this is real life that real life is not team and caged but wild and fears and so crazy the beautiful that sometimes it takes our breath away we in a pull down the walls we have built brick by brick we began to say no in practice saying yes we allow ourselves to be seen we might even look in the mirror one day and instead of only seeing scars and bruises we all realise that we are incredibly brave and beautiful we have been all along and we are
