Did you know that certain Native American artisans weave small, purposeful mistakes into their blankets?
These master craftspeople include intentional slip-ups in their best work. But why?
Because they believe that the “mistake” is the very space that allows Spirit to move in and out of the fabric.
Take a moment and let that sink in. Then ask yourself …
What if the mistakes you wish you hadn’t made could be openings for Spirit in your life?
If that question freaks you out a little, I understand.

I’ve spent most of my life in abject terror of making mistakes. But in 2011, I started this blog as an account of the journey to get past perfect and rise up real.
