Do you ever have something that you are just really scared of doing? You are afraid you will fail or afraid of what people will think of you. Do you not even start something because you don’t think you can do it perfectly? Are you just using that as an excuse?
Another area in your life that can help with the need for perfection is time management. I know I always feel less than perfect when I forget an event or I’m running late to something. Well time management will not make you perfect it will make you feel like you have your life together. It can help when you are planning events to make sure that you get everything done that you want to and can help eliminate the mom guilt about forgetting something. Here a two of my time management tips to help you accomplish more so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
This is a fun post to give you a glimpse into my life. I am always curious to see how other moms schedule their days so I thought it would be fun to show you mine.

On school days the schedule is a lot different.

These are some of my tips for getting more time in your life to do the things you love.
Most of the time we do not feel perfect. I know I don’t. I make a lot of mistake and sometimes slack off and I don’t do what I’m suppose to. We all do it because we are only human and there is no such thing as perfect. You can not be perfect but you can be the perfect you. There is only one you and you are perfectly that person. So let’s strive to be the best version of you. Here are a few ways that we feel less than perfect and how to change them around. Now these things won’t make you perfect but they will help you live to your full potential.
It’s like a badge of honor to be busy. We associate being busy with having a fulfilled life and always doing something. But is it really? Are we just over-stressing ourselves? Being busy doesn’t mean we have a great life. Maybe we are running ourselves crazy and not taking any time to rest. I think it’s alright to do away with busy, to try to slow down and not fill our schedules up. Let’s enjoy life more and do more of the things we love. Here are some of my tips to stop being busy and relax more.
In honor of Father’s Day I decided to get a dad’s view on perfectionism. As mothers there is always this need to feel like we have to be perfect. Do dads feel this same need? I interviewed my husband to see his take on feeling like he needs to be the perfect father. My husband’s name is Morgan and we have been together 16 years and married 11 years. We have 3 children together.
