“12 Truths” - Anne Lamott Video

Anne Lamott recorded a Ted Talk about the 12 Truths that she knows for sure, or almost for sure.
 
Here is the short list:
  1. The first and truest thing is that all truth is a paradox. Life is both a precious, unfathomably beautiful gift, and it’s impossible here, on the incarnational side of things.
  2. Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes.
  3. There is almost nothing outside of you that will help in any kind of lasting way, unless you’re waiting for an organ.
  4. Everyone is screwed up, broken, clingy and scared, even the people who seem to have it most together.
  5. Chocolate with 75 percent cacao is not actually a food.
  6. Every writer you know writes really terrible first drafts, but they keep their butt in the chair.
  7. Publication and temporary creative successes are something you have to recover from.
  8. Families are hard, hard, hard, no matter how cherished and astonishing they may also be.
  9. Food, try to do a little better.
  10. Grace is spiritual WD-40, or water wings.
  11. God just means goodness. It’s really not all that scary.
  12. Wow and yikes. It’s so hard to bear when the few people you cannot live without die.
