While baking some birthday goodies this week, I started listening to Elizabeth Gilbert's podcast "Magic Lessons" which is an extension of sorts of her book "Big Magic" which was published in 2015. She has two seasons of episodes, and I just picked the last episode of this last season. It was a sort of post mortem on the whole season of guests, and there was so much good stuff. I had never heard of Glennen Doyle Melton, but she is a blog writer (Momastery.com), an author, a recovering addict and a truth teller. WHAT A TRUTH TELLER. I have got to see if I can find a transcript of their conversation. Elizabeth Gilbert mentioned a quote by John Steinbeck, "and now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good." Elizabeth said that Glennen went one step further with the thought, "but if you don't have to be good, then you can be free." Isn't that the most beautiful idea? Isn't that what we all want, to be free?
