My last post in regards to Perfection must have hit some chords with my readers. I received so many responses and questions and had some great conversations around being perfect. I do think this is such an in-depth, heavy topic that could be discussed for months. I considered writing one more piece on it, but I think I’m going to let it steep for awhile. I may come back to it again towards the end of my challenge. I feel like their are other topics a little more light-hearted that are inspiring me right now, though the perfection topic is tucked away in my mental rolodex.
Honestly, I’m having a hard time organizing my thoughts today. I wrote two different blog entries on this topic and didn’t like either of them. So, I’m leaving you with more food for thought. Maybe after I sleep on it, I will have more clarity. My topic is using more than just words to create the universe of possibility for my kids, but also through my actions, my examples and how I show them the way I handle being a mom, wife, and human being.
I wanted to share a quote I took from a woman I follow on Twitter, Amy Hilbrich Davis, the CEO and Founder of www.InspiringMoms.com.
“You can have it all, just not all at the same time. You cannot be all things to all people. It takes courage and confidence to say, “No.” It isn’t easy, yet it’s vital to have a clear sense of your priorities–for yourself & your family. Your kids are watching you and learning how to juggle the demands of motherhood, …while growing personally in the process. You are teaching them. What a privilege!” (Follow @inspiringmoms on Twitter).
