Learning to Love Yourself

One of the hardest things to do is to learn to love yourself. With my need to be perfect all the time I never felt I was good enough. I always compared myself to other people who I thought were getting it right. I never took time for me because I felt I needed to keep going to keep up with all the other “perfect” moms out there.

How to be more Positive

It seems there is something negative everywhere you look. On the news, social media and even in everyday life. It’s hard to keep a positive attitude with so many negative vibes all around us. My sister recently asked me how I stay so positive all the time and I had to stop for a minute. I’m not positive all the time and I’m surprised that anyone thought so. But then I stopped and thought about it. I like to see others smile so maybe I am positive around other people because I don’t like to upset them with negative things. So these are the five things I thought of that I do everyday to stay positive and I hope they help.

What does perfect mean anyway?

What does perfect mean anyway?

I am a perfectionist. My philosophy has always been if I can’t do it perfectly then there’s no point in doing it at all. Boy did I miss out on doing a lot of things. The truth is I’m never perfect. What is perfect? Who decides what perfect is? If we don’t really ever truly know what perfect is then how can we reach it? We can’t and we need to start accepting that.
