And that's even better.

Turning over these words from Donald Miller:

"I wish I could go back and talk to myself when I was twenty. I’d say to myself 'listen, don’t worry about the things you’ve been worrying about. Everything is going to work out great.' And I’d likely clarify with myself that 'In the future I get everything I need?' And I’d say back to myself 'No, you just realize you didn’t need it. And that’s even better.'"

Great quote! What book of his is that from?

It's actually from a blog post he wrote: http://donmilleris.com/2010/11/12/the-joy-of-getting-older/

(the last paragraph)

I thought it was awesome. And comforting. :)

After I wrote that last comment, I actually googled it and found his blog. It's great stuff.

I know! He is awesome. I can't believe he's making Blue Like Jazz into a movie!
