This post is not about perfection. In fact it is about perfection found in the messy, cluttered and confusing life.
I was over at Our Little Apartment blog reading the most read articles. I discovered one about the things the author does not do. I find it so refreshing that she could be honest about the things she doesn't do. I agree, sometimes blogs, especially beautifully designed and well written ones, seem so out of my league I am left wondering if I am not doing this blog thing right. Are these women (and men) really living in that beautiful of a house and look so put together every day?
As much as I love writing about the things that I do, there are plenty of things I don't do. I always strive to improve myself, make my life better, my days filled with more beautiful things, BUT I am not perfect. Not even close.
So, in honor of all the things I neglect or traits I lack:
I don't always remember to pay my water bill on time, much to my husband's dismay.
I don't blog every day.
I don't even think about my blog some days.
I don't iron my clothes on most days.
I don't know if I am going to run the marathon I signed up for in April.
I don't blow dry my hair most days.
I don't garden. tried. failed.
I don't wear lipstick. Ever.
I don't always cook dinner. Hello frozen meals!
I don't always call people back right away.
I don't check my personal e-mail every day.
I don't always like my job.
I don't have great confidence some times.
I don't vacuum under beds. Ever.
I don't know everything about the products I sell at my job.
I don't shower if I don't run that day.
I don't run every day.
I don't enjoy folding laundry. Hate it actually.
Ah, that feels better.
I much as I want things to be perfect, they will never be. The title of this blog is a good reminder to myself that "come what may" things will be ok. There is no perfect plan for life, de-cluttering my home or making dinner. It's ok.
The pinnacle of perfection is living. However messy that gets.
What do you not do?
