Baby Steps

Jasmijn is walking now, and watching her is a hoot! It's also beautiful! Scott Noelle just reminded me of a fun quote on his free newsletter, The Daily Groove:

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly the first time.

I love for things to go perfectly and often don't even begin for fear of mistakes. The lesson I'm taking from my daughter is that the wobbly steps can be the most delightful. The tumbles can simply be registered as information on how to adjust things for the next try. And move on!

So, in the spirit of a child, I will forget about judging myself harshly and delight in the adventure of everyday life!

Happy 2010!!!

Jolene =)
