"Wholeness does not mean perfection: it means embracing brokenness as an integral part of life." - Parker J. Palmer
I don't think we truly appreciate our wholeness until we are broken. We don't appreciate our health until it fades. We don't appreciate the goodness of today until we encounter the challenges of tomorrow. We don't appreciate what we have until it's gone. Why can't we live in the now? Why can't we have an attitude of gratitude? Why do we spend so much time looking for our next that we don't relish in the present? Today is a blessing. Today is all we have. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Just be and enjoy being.
"You don't need another person, place or thing to make you whole. God already did that. Your job is to know it." - Maya Angelou
