Ring the bells that still can ring,

forget your perfect offering,

there is a crack,

a crack in everything

(there is a crack in everything)

that's how the light gets in.

Leonard Cohen


That’s how the light gets in.

That’s exactly how the light gets in! 

Through little cracks and crevices of our lives.  Little moments and untraceable movements. At a time when we don’t expect much to happen.  Eyes cast down, in the insignificance of our daily lives.

So, forget your mistakes.  Accept forgiveness.  Let go.  Don’t look back.  Take courage in who you are, and who you are meant to be.  Take a step forward.

You can’t go back. 

You can’t change anything.  We can’t control everything.  Forget the age-old trap and illusion of perfection.  Forget what could have been, might have been, should have been, or would have been.

Life is for the living.

Life is for you. 

So, ring your bell, because you still can.

Don’t bury your talent.

Look at your beautiful eyes in the mirror.  Allow yourself a moment to stare back.

Take comfort in your failures and mistakes.

You are full of beautiful cracks.

That’s exactly how the light gets in.
