Living Out Loud

"One cannot have wisdom without living life." ~ Dorothy McCall

Life is complicated. It's not easy to live without messing up once in a while. Some of us are way too hard on ourselves.

You don't learn unless you are experiencing things. You don't experience things without making mistakes and taking wrong turns.

We can be so cautious that we never fully live. Trying not to make mistakes or playing it safe holds us at arms length from life.

I believe that we are alive on this planet to learn lessons and to grow personally and spiritually.

Children make lots of mistakes as they learn the lessons of growing up. If adults are living life to the fullest, they will take wrong roads, make mistakes and fail sometimes too. It's all part of the process of living life out loud!

It's definitely worth it! Failure and mistakes are not the end of us! They can become the fodder for our growth and development!

Live out loud!
