“There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in…” ~Leonard Cohen

paigebradley00When a child learns to walk, she may pull herself up on a couch, then walk sideways along the edge moving her right hand, right foot, left hand, left foot and so on, until she gets to the other side.

Or she may push a chair across the room in a mow-the-lawn fashion.

However she takes her first steps, she does not walk perfectly and her efforts only take her so far.

She realizes there’s a crack in her method and one can almost see the wheels turning in her head, with a look of determination as she works out her next move.

Do you remember when your child first walked to you as you waited a few steps away? How (s)he giggled with glee upon reaching you?

When you try something new, taking your first tentative steps, you’ll find cracks in your plan.

Cracks that let in the light and eventually get you where you need to be.

Most things don’t work out perfectly at first.

But don’t mind the cracks.

They let in the light.
