    Genius advice from Madame Lamott. I must remember this when I write my autobiography.

    I've always liked Anne Lamott. Her essays on writing and life are inspiring without triggering the usual gag reflex from an overload of trite and treacle. Her straightforward approach appeals to many aspiring writers.

"A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms." Love yourself and your children for who you/they truly are!

This is so true! If you have to keep telling everyone how great, smart, forgiving and happy you are, clearly you are trying desperately to convince yourself! If you need to scream how 'moved on' you are from the rooftop, clearly you are not. Confidence is silent!!!
