Over the years, I realized that I had a deep struggle with perfection. As I became a mama, I knew I needed to let go of perfect, which is, of course, easier said than done. While I know this will be an ongoing journey, I am thankful to reflect and see the steps that have been taken so far. We may never fully conquer a struggle, but we can daily take steps in the right direction.
Growing up my sister and I spent hours playing with our Barbie dolls. We were always orchestrating the perfect little lives for our dolls. Whenever I would think of the future, I would envision myself married with children living in Michigan. I did consider that we may be the next town over, but I would raise my family in Western Michigan.
Even when I went away to college in West Virginia, I still pictured myself settling back down in Michigan. It just made sense. Once I got married to my husband that was the plan- for us to move back to my home state. However, as much as we tried to do that, every door kept getting slammed shut. Meanwhile, there was a wide open door for us to move to South Carolina.
Today, I am sharing about my journey to let go of perfect and some encouragement for you! Read more here.
