Trying to be Perfect at Everything

I use to be a perfectionist. I would drive myself crazy worrying about every little detail and trying to make everything just right. Not only did I drive myself crazy but I drove everyone around me crazy too. My kids had to have the perfect outfit, birthday and presents. Every time my husband did something to help me out it wasn’t good enough because he did it wrong. I would spend entire weekends cleaning my house so it looked amazing (which is next to impossible with 3 kids). I was getting burnt out trying to make my life look perfect.

Technically she is my step-daughter but I have been raising her since she came into my life so she is my daughter in every sense of the word. It’s hard to believe that the time has gone this fast.

The three things that make me feel like I have my life together

The three things that make me feel like I have my life together

Most days I try my best to have it together and most days I fail. Once in a while I have an amazing day and figured out it’s when these three things align. I notice that I’m a happier person and I have more patience. I live in the real world though so I can’t get these three things to align all the time but I’m working on it and that’s all that I can do. I know I don’t have to do all three perfectly but as long as I can get them done it usually helps me get through the day.
