I have never liked admitting that sometimes I am wrong but, the truth is, sometimes I am.

And sometimes, instead of trying to figure something out, I’m just going to tell you I don’t have the answers.  Because I don’t.

I used to think I needed to be right and I needed to always have answers but that’s just another belief that’s bullshit.  It isn’t true and it isn’t who I am.  Sure I like to know stuff…a lot of stuff.  I’m a total sponge but I don’t have to know it all and I don’t have to solve everyone’s problems.  That isn’t my role in life and that’s okay.

And I like to be right.  I like to be viewed as a resource and it feels good when people look to me for support and information.  But I can’t always be right.  It’s not possible for any of us to be right all the time.  And that’s okay too.

It’s exhausting to maintain a position of always being right and knowing it all.  Really exhausting.  And I’m tired of being tired.

Truth is…

I’d rather be happy than right and I’d rather play sometimes than always have to have an answer for everything.  It’s a much more enjoyable way to live.

A very cool tree at Minnehaha Park that looks to me like a woman reclining and just enjoying being in that space in the midst of the creek.
