December 2018: Denise's Letter

My first newsletter. Whoa. I’ve dreamed about this for a long time, but I’m not sure I ever really believed it would happen. Yet, here we are.

There’s a lot of pressure (from myself) to make it perfect. It won’t be and I’ve settled into deep acceptance that perfection is not what I’m after — ever, from myself or others.

I don’t want you to be perfect. I want you to be yourself — your true self — soaking in the present and looking back for clues on ways to make tomorrow just a little bit better.

And…that’s what this whole experiment is about. Showing up. Learning. Listening. Inviting others in. The Examined Life.

Today, I’m showing up. Just as I am. Imperfect. Enthusiastic. Expecting the unexpected.

I’m so glad you are here.
