Present over Perfect

This is on my mind lately…

November 115

I fight against the messy, disastrous chaos of  life. I rage, yell and pound my elbow against the counter to try to silence the voice yelling in my head. I fight to breathe. Tears get stuck in the back of my eyes.

I can’t keep doing this to myself.

I must embrace this mantra. For my family. My soul. For love.

I can do this. I can be here in this messy, beautiful moment.

Right now.

This moment is perfect in its completeness.

I can be in it. Here. Now.

Not perfectly.  Enough

Side note of excitement: Shauna Niequist is writing a book called Present Over Perfect.
