It's OK to Not Be Perfect


Friday, July 06, 2012

This is hard for me. I like being perfect. I used to think that I ought to somehow be the perfect wife and mother just because I am a rational, productive adult woman. LOL. Then I had kids. It's hard to admit when I'm not perfect and it's harder to be OK with that.



Then I realised that it's the journey that matters. Sure, my home doesn't look like a model home yet. No, I'm not built like a supermodel. Yeah, my kids occasionally throw fits, backtalk, or get an attitude about something I ask them to do. I don't always have breakfast on the stove when my husband gets up or dinner waiting when he gets home. I still have a pretty great life, and I am blessed with the power to make it better.

    Thanks for the reminder! It can literally drive one crazy (or to a nervous breakdown!) in that quest for perfection. If we can accept who we are, forgive our failures, learn from them and move on - it can be so liberating! I know it's something I'm working toward (letting go of that "perfection quest"haha)...but it's hard, isn't it? Hard as it may be, it's something to keep reminding ourselves - there IS no perfect. Sometimes good enough is perfect! (o: Progress....not perfection!

    WHAT A GREAT BLOG! I HAVE YET TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT I WILL NEVER BE PERFECT. I HAVE SPENT MY ENTIRE LIFE TRYING TO BE JUST THAT. NEEDLESS TO SAY, I HAVE FAILED MISERABLY AND OFTEN TAKE THAT TO MEEN THAT I, MYSELF, AM A FAILURE. NOT TRUE! YOU DO THE BEST YOU CAN WITH WHAT YOU HAVE TO WORK WITH AT THE TIME. IF YOU EVER FIND THAT PERFECT FAMILY AND HOUSE, YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND THAT THERE ARE SECRETS THAT NO ONE CAN SEE. NOBODY AND NOTHING IS PERFECT WITH ONE EXCEPTION. AND HE DIED ON A CROSS FOR ME.

  I think that perfection is something that we all struggle with. It took me a long time and 5 days in the critical care unit to realize that perfection doesn't really exist. We are all perfect just the way we are even if we don't like what we see.

    Perfect is only when an airbrush is involved...and I still see nasty things come out of that!
