We expend massive amounts of energy in pursuit of perfection. If only we never made mistakes. Wouldn't life be just perfect? Maybe, but it would also be static, unfulfilling, and really, really boring.
Nationally syndicated humor columnist, author, and mom, Lisa Sugarman, knows that life is a work in progress. She knows what we all suspect—life is at its best when it's fluid, unpredictable, and gloriously imperfect. And if this means life sometimes turns ugly and unpleasant, it only makes the good times that much sweeter.
Author of opinion column It Is What It Is, Lisa embraces reality, not perfection. “We're meant to screw up, make bad decisions, and lose our way. We can't control everything that life throws at us, but we can control how we react to it.”
With the right attitude and a little guidance from Lisa, anyone can be happy and fulfilled most of the time. Her collection of funny, inspiring, and sometimes poignant opinion columns reminds us that life just isn’t a straight line, even on the best of days, and it's the bumps in the road which make the journey so beautiful.
