Practice Makes Perfect

I came across Jesh de Rox’s website. He is a remarkable photographer. As I was reading through his blog, he had a post on practice. I found it very moving.

practice makes perfect

a quote we have all heard, and definitely one with more than a little truth to it… that being the case, what is it that you practice?

if i may suggest…

no matter what you have practiced before now, let nothing and no one (not even yourself) deprive you of your right to change what you choose to practice at any time…

practice enlarging your heart… see how many more people you can fit in there… how much more of yourself.

practice believing what you know in your heart is true… not what you have been told to believe, not what you believe for the sake of others… practice believing the wild dreams your heart once spent all day imagining… the ones that have since been too often put in the childish or i need to grow up bins…

practice remembering the many strengths and gifts you have…

practice making memories worth having…

practice being brave… one day someone’s son or daughter may come up to you and tell you that though you have never met, your braveness once changed their life…

practice the good kind of crying…

practice letting yourself be moved…

practice speaking up when your sensibilities tell you to be quiet… remember: being sensible usually isn’t

practice new things — it’s hard to write an interesting life story when your fingers keep typing the same four letters…

practice telling the truth — most of all to yourself…

my many amazing friends… without fail, we become masterful at what we practice — let’s let go of practicing the things that don’t belong to our peace…

may you find your peace, joy, and so much love… wherever you are
