“Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.” ― Salvador Dalí
There is so much out of our control that its impossible to create the perfect Christmas table-scape, and a magically delicious seven course meal, and have our house decorated like a Better Homes and Gardens spread, and have our kids in perfectly coordinated outfits and have them behave like little angels throughout the whole affair. Whew! I'm tired and stressed just thinking about all that.
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” ― Marilyn Monroe
Its good to have goals and plans but we should learn to expect hiccups along the way. No matter what phase of life you're in (but especially if you're a mom with little ones) imperfection is something you should be used to - I'd encourage you to embrace it. There is no avoiding it. And frankly, why should we? There is much joy to be found in letting ourselves be released from the pressure of attempting the impossible. Relax and enjoy your friends and family. Savor the food and fellowship. But don't stress over if things are perfect.
“We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That's what connects us--that we're all broken, all beautifully imperfect.”
― Emilio Estevez
