Ya know, I've always been a perfectionist. However, I'm learning in this season of life that striving for perfection isn't going to get me the relationships and joy in my life that, we as women, crave. It's embracing the mess that brings those kind of friendships. There isn't a friend in town I wouldn't let into my home unannounced these days even in its messiest state, because ya know what? It's not a big deal. I'm human! You're human! Messes happen, especially with kids! So I just don't care. But this isn't just about embracing a messy house. It's about embracing everything that isn't perfect in my life and just doing life with others. I had too many dark days to count after Jonah's arrival, and having to let go of parts of me that I wasn't ready for. I felt like a mess. I'm still a mess. But I let my need for perfection go, I'm on a path of accepting myself and where I am, and more importantly, I'm letting others in. Community has been so healing and I couldn't be more thankful for the women in my life who have shown me that. So friends, embrace the glorious mess that you are, because that's what makes you perfect 💛
