Perfection? No. Real? Yes please!

Oh, and my video jumped and cut off the statement I was trying to make "The only thing you should do is what WORKS"

    Wow, I may have to check out that push up challenge! 25 in a row?? Like regular without bent knees? Either!

    Yeah, perfection, who needs it? I know the more I pour over one 'issue/problem' the more pop up right behind it (in my mind) way too much energy. I was just going to upload my wasted day of a vlog for today and reality just hit me about how much time and money and energy I'[m wasting on some dumb issues. Enjoy today, AS YOU ARE, it maybe all we have!

    Ahh I totally relate to this.. I used to be so concerned with how I look I wouldn't go outside without makeup on and something that's black and covers me all over, matching perfectly, hair ironed which would take me a LONG time in the morning. Then of course the anxiety would hit if I don't say the 'right thing' or somebody looked at me funny. As for test results? 90% would make me resort to tears. I have issues lmao.

    I've been learning, this site has been a HUGE help and I agree, that I don't have to be completely perfect everyday. I'm not straightening my hair or doing my makeup everyday, I'm starting to accept who I am 'underneath it all' aha. Spark does give you confidence I totally 100% agree with this. Ha sorry this is an essay.

    Anywayy well done on the pushups! I need to get that going again, I made it to week 3 but I sprained my elbow when I went swimming and have been 'taking my time' *cough*slacking*cough* getting back into them. 33 pushups is insane! Haha I'll be scared when I get that far lol

    So true. We want to appear perfect to others, but it just adds stress to our life. I'm working on being more real and admitting my failures and weaknesses. Just realizing that we all struggle with this helps.
