Giving Up On Being Perfect

I’ve come to terms with the fact that I might not be awesome at this next chapter of my life.  As a recovering perfectionist I am accepting that I might just be white knuckling it from day to day without my planner written in beautiful color-coding, or a memory of where an obscure but critical document is (where are our passports anyway?) or the most perfectly perfect follow through with friends, family, or even ((deep breath)) clients.  But I will MAKE IT FREAKING HAPPEN the best I can.  Every day.  And for now “good enough” actually is.

    Teresa, you might not be perfect at this next chapter. (OK, let’s face it, you WON’T be perfect, because nobody is.) But you don’t have to perfect to be awesome! And I have absolutely no doubt that you WILL be awesome!

    Teresa. . .I love it! What a great reminder to all of the “recovering perfectionist” among us ;) It is an ever-changing adventure and it might be perfect, but it will be fun, exciting, and invigorating! Welcome to mommy hood :)
