Perfectionism a disease.

There, I said it. You know, the thought that is has to be absolutely perfect or you just can’t do it. Wanting to start something but needing to have all your ducks in a row first? Getting distracted when it comes to tasks because you have to be sure everything else is on point too? Afraid to fail? Sound familiar?

I didn’t even know I was doing this to myself. I was so worried about being perfect, about not messing up. I couldn’t fail. Is that true? NO! The most successful people in life didn’t wake up successful. They failed, over and over, and over again. Yet, when I grew up. I didn’t realize failure was okay. I had to get good grades. I had to be good. I learned early that ding good meant that I was good, and I carried that with me into adulthood.

Unfortunately for me, this often meant not doing the things that could of been life changing for the matter of it had to be perfect first. Y’all! We are meant to fail. Again and again and again. My entire business is built on failure!

Failing over, and over, and over again and learning what works. Growing more with each failure.

My workouts? I used to just wait for the perfect time to workout, and if Tad interrupted, I would get cranky. Now, heck. I have two kids. I just workout and let them crawl all over me. I pause, I get snacks if needed, but I keep going.

The perfection isn’t in me is fuming, but it’s life. It’s messy, it’s not perfect. It’s about failing forward and growing daily.

This is your reminder that you don’t have to be perfect. You just have to do it. Remember, 2 miles walked is better than 5 miles not ran.

How did we become a society striving for “perfection?” 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣?

Truly, 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐢𝐬 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧. Perfection is something we have created seemingly to only stress ourselves out. So while you’re scrolling social media getting ready for work, or lying in bed, wishing your life looked like someone else’s. Remember, you are getting the 𝒉𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒍𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝒓𝒆𝒆𝒍.

You aren’t seeing the blood, sweat, or tears. You aren’t seeing the toddlers throwing fits, the kids meltdowns before bedtime. You don’t see the occasional squabble with their husband, or the rolls they have when they sit down. You don’t see the messy house that the kids created in .00000675 seconds.

Instead of beating yourself up about all the things they have that you don’t, remind yourself that 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐞𝐧𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡. You are perfect the way you are, and you are only comparing to somebody’s highlight reel, of what they want you to see.

So on this Monday, here I am, showing my squishy mom tummy, stretch marks and all, reminding you to 𝐋𝐎𝐕𝐄 𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑𝐒𝐄𝐋𝐅 a little more, and 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙛 𝙬𝙞𝙩𝙝 𝙤𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙖 𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙡𝙚𝙨𝙨.

Catherine woke up in such a great mood this morning. Punkin was playing and rolling around all over mama during her workout. Crazy thing?… I was 5:30am!!

This girl has been getting up so early. And y’all, mama tries to get up early to get everything done before the kiddos, and sometimes life just happens, and you know what, it doesn’t always happen how we plan.

But, instead of getting cranky, or frustrated, I just saw it as quality girl time before mama took brother to school and leaves her with Gramma all day. Boy, did we have quality girl time this AM! I’ll share my workout later in my stories and you can see all the fun!

Hope you’re having a great Thursday, and if frustration comes, remember you can choose joy and find the good!

When is the last time you spent 𝙩𝙤𝙩𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙮, 𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙧𝙪𝙥𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙩𝙞𝙢𝙚 with your family?

Not just hanging out in the same room on your phones or tablets, but actually sitting down, talking to each other, 𝙚𝙣𝙟𝙤𝙮𝙞𝙣𝙜 one another’s company? Answer with yourself honestly. Y’all I am so big on preaching honesty, transparency, and telling it like it is.

Something weighing heavy on my heart is our youth. Our future. Our legacy. Kids these days seem to have 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙚𝙨 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙣 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙗𝙚𝙛𝙤𝙧𝙚. The suicide rate amongst kids, as young as 9 (INSANE TO consider) has increased throughout the last decade.

Sure, we could say our population has increased. But this goes deeper. We are spending more times glued to our phone, working insane hours, and when it comes down to it, we are 𝙏𝙊𝙊 tired to parent, and this HAS to change. We HAVE to make time for our kids. We HAVE to be better for the generations to come. We HAVE to be the ones to set the example.

Children deserved to be protected, and cherished, valued, and understood. You do what you have to do to provide for your family, but when you’re home, you find a set time where you put your phone away and give those kids your undivided attention.

𝙏𝙤𝙙𝙖𝙮 𝙄 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙣𝙜𝙚 𝙮𝙤𝙪. Put your phone away for at least an hour, and give your kids, your family, your dog, your undivided attention. Then go ahead and take out your calendar, and schedule time with your family, and STICK to it. Because are you living this life and creating families to work nonstop for someone else, or are you striving to create healthy families and homes?

DOUBLE TAP if you agree that we could all step back a little and focus on our family and littles.

Years ago I was a new mother, overwhelmed, unhappy, unconfident, and very extremely overweight. The birth of my son led me on a journey from self loathing to self loving, and now, I want to pay it forward, and help you be your own transformation, from the inside out.
