Journey: Week Twenty-Three

Stop trying to make things perfect. 

"The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done."
I often find myself pining over things I want to have,  feel entitled to have, or wishing and dreaming of "the perfect life". Well, big reality check, thinking about things isn't going to accomplish anything. And although I've always known I need to work toward those goals, relationships and accomplishments, putting actions to words is no simple task.

Although the "perfect life" is completely fictional, I do want the perfect life that was meant for me. It's time to stop wishing and dreaming and start really digging in and doing. To start, though, I'm just going to focus on being thankful for what I already have...

  • My healthy son, no matter how rebellious he is acting at any given moment.
  • My beautiful puppy who is the sweetest dog, even if she wakes me up at 6AM to go outside.
  • My  amazing job and my incredibly supportive, encouraging boss.
  • My friends who keep a smile on my face and joy in my heart, even though they are often hundreds of miles away. 

I'll get to working toward the bigger things tomorrow. Really, I will.
