With Problems Like These

My life so far has been spectacularly studded with what self-help writers call 'opportunities for growth'.

I welcome them all. My aim in life is not to find a way to live problem-free, rather it is to learn how to make the most of whatever this wacky, wonderful world may throw at me from day-to-day. From paralysis to addiction to bad boyfriends to breast cancer to today’s conundrum: how does a person manage to burn chick peas?

These problems mean Lily is living. The day I don’t have them is the day I am in my coffin.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage. - Anais Nin

Great attitude! I like 'there are no mistakes, only lessons'. Feels much nicer. x
