Recently, I read an article written by Mary Pols, the author of a book, Accidentally on Purpose. (CBS thought it worthy material for a sitcom). I almost never watch TV and will most likely never see any of the episodes, however something she said in a recent interview resonated so strongly with me I had to share. It went like this:
"I wrote it because I'm a writer, and this experience was the weirdest, most terrifying, but also the most amazing thing that ever happened to me. The book was about letting go of expectations; this was not a life I ever would have planned for myself."
So true, Mary, so true.
