I'm a HUGE perfectionist though and though (God bless my husband). If something's not just right I get pretty upset with myself and feel like a failure. Whenever I make a mistake it takes DAYS for me to get over it! It's of course not with everything(thank God), but still quite a few things. I'm not a clean freak or OCD although I do feel 10x better when things are clean. I mostly am a people pleaser. If I work hard to please someone and they point out things after that I didn't do right I start balling inside, especially if I don't get a second chance to redeem myself. (although I do appreciate comments to help me improve on something!)
My husband has learned over the years to be a little more expressive about my meals, because if he's silent, or says, "it was good" in a neutral voice it make me think there was something wrong with it. (I'm also very expressive when it comes to good food!)
I've been a HUGE perfectionist with Everett. To the point where my life was 100% mom 100% of the time. I made it a goal a while back to just quit trying to make everything perfect for him and slack off every once in a while. I feel like I've become a lot better at this over time and still continue to. It's hard to have to relearn to live life.
With all of that said I just want you to know that my life's not perfect... in any way. I've seen so many bloggers frustrated with themselves and feeling like their not good enough, because they get sucked up in this fantasy lifestyle where everything looks, tastes, fits, and goes perfect. Behind those twenty-some perfect pictures that someone posted, there were probably a good eighty that weren't. My point is, that any kind of social networking is just like a magazine. You can't take anything for what it looks like. I try to be genuine on this blog as much as I can, but yes, I do post more about my good days then my bad. I like to look at the positive side of life and I hope you usually leave this blog feeling a little more positive about life. We have way too little life left to focus on the negative.
Enjoy life. Enjoy the little things. Don't pull your hair out, because you can't get something to look the way it does on Pintrest!
