“. . .The truth is that our childhoods shape us like clay, and then the years glaze and bake us till there is no way we can change who we are without breaking something.”
~Sybil Smith, Imoegene’s Prayer, The Sun, February 2014
And the thing is, we’re often SO afraid of breaking something that we don’t change, even when we believe/think/hope that we want to.
The best things that ever happened to me happened right after I was willing to break something. It reminds me a little bit of how I play monopoly vs. how I run my life. It’s so easy to be a tycoon when the money is pink and blue and yellow and the property you might earn a fortune on, or might just as easily lose, is a 3″ square with a little red plastic hotel on it.
No great gain without some kind of risk.
Now get out there and break something.
But only if you want to.
