Present Over Perfect


“Have you ever ran a race where the finish line came to you?” That is something I heard this morning while I was at church, which got me saying to myself ” I’m glad I got out of my heated blanket this morning”

This week was full of changes, I came back from vacation, went back to work, started college again, managed to go back to the gym, spent time with my friends, finished all the work I was supposed finish by the end of this week, I was lucky to able to have an awesome four days off work due to a snow storm, I found an amazing church and went to my first service in over a year and yet, I found myself  not enjoying any of it…

I spent this whole week putting so much pressure on myself trying to give my 100% to everything and everyone forgetting all about myself. So many times I feel as is if it is my responsibility to make everything happen for everyone, I like to make life easier for them and end up forgetting a little about myself.

Earlier during the week I started reading a book called “Present over Perffect” Before I even opened the cover of the book, I was already so connected to it because of the tittle. I spend so much time attempting to become my own definition of perfect, forgetting about what really matters which is getting to enjoy life and make memories every single day.

One of my resolutions for this new year was to “make this year about me” and I going to do that. I am going to do great in school, have a clean home, eat healthy, build a stronger relationship with my husband, all while putting my self right on top of all of my priorities.

I know I want to be happy and get to soak up as much happiness and experiences from life and to achive that I have to go after it all, because I can and because I deserve to.

With love and a pinch of salt always,
