I was reading an article in one of my home magazine yesterday entitled, ‘perfectly imperfect’ and the phrase really got me thinking. we spend so much time trying to get everything perfect–and what do we really accomplish? Sure i’d like to lose 5 pounds, have a cleaner house, and perfectly behaved kids, but the stress of trying to maintain those things comes with a high price. When I really look at my motives, i think my aim is to impress other people. The people who come across as perfect to me, I actually find intimidating! So, for the sake of sanity I’m going to make a new effort–to relax and let things be perfectly imperfect.
