Kids Meridian

Point at which sun or star attains highest altitude

It’s all about the journey…

How often we forget that and catch ourselves focused on the destination. I often notice this in children who are always attempting the “perfect” painting, drawing etc.. Where does that come from? How does a four year old become focused on perfection? How much of life is missed out on in this quest for perfection… and how much creativity remains unexplored and undiscovered?

I know I was a classic perfectionist and yet, some of the best moments of my life where when I accidentally forgot about perfection and enjoyed the messy present!

A lot of what I had planned didn’t make me happy. In surrendering control, I found my bliss. I was guided towards it. A life that had felt like I was climbing a down escalator became entirely smooth and flowy. Closed doors started opening, quite miraculously. Everything and everyone I needed appeared at just the right moment. I’d never known that experience. The moment I let go of wanting it to be perfect. The moment I took that risk in not knowing what comes next, my life began. And I am being shown a plan so much more enticing than the one I had in mind for myself.

Agnes de Mille said “Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how… the artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”
