A masterpiece and a work in progress . . . this is us.

Storyteller and activist Sophia Bush tweeted a simple phrase a few years ago:

"You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously."

This hit me with such power. I realized when I read it that I often see myself in black and white terms. I am either going good or doing poorly.

But this allows us to believe that we can still be magnificent while we are imperfect. 


I love that I can struggle and still be stupendous, that I can make mistakes and still be magnificent.

I love the visual that we are masterpieces AND works in progress.

This is my new mantra. I will memorize it. I will cross-stitch it on a pillow. 

I will believe it.
