 About the Book 

In a society that puts so much emphasis on perfection, Veronica Chambers mischievously casts aside the guilt-inducing litany of shoulda, coulda, woulda that seems to define modern-day lifeand replaces it with a resounding call to live with foolishMoreIn a society that puts so much emphasis on perfection, Veronica Chambers mischievously casts aside the guilt-inducing litany of shoulda, coulda, woulda that seems to define modern-day lifeand replaces it with a resounding call to live with foolish bravery. Refreshingly open about the personal failures and limitations that once weighed her down with shame, Chambers describes how sheturned her less-than-perfect qualities into sources of delight and satisfaction. From belting out off-key renditions of torch songs while washing the dishes to seeing even the most unlikely career opportunity as a chanceto spread ones wings, Chambers shows that a willingness to fall flat on ones face heightens the joys of everyday life and opens a new, wonderfully liberating perspective on work, motherhood, aging, friendship, failure, and success.With a winning combination of lighthearted anecdotes and heartfelt musings, Chambers encourages readers to follow her example and do the things that tickle theirfancies and fire their imaginations-no matter what other people (and that little voice inside) may say. Like Chambers herself, theyll discover that what we consider our failures have asurprising ability to charm . . . we are loved for our imperfections-for our funny faces and walks and dances and songs.
