If You're Not There Yet...

Trying is the always enough.

Maybe we're not being the parent we want to be. Perhaps we're not as toned as we'd like. We wish we had greater scholastic accomplishments. Or our start-up business isn't even close to what we'd hoped for. It's easy to get too hard on ourselves, especially in a world where all we have to do is go on Pinterest and be bombarded by perfection. Perfect houses, perfect moms, perfect bodies, perfect this, perfect that.

My last post has been on my mind continually. It took lots of courage knowing that people would mistakenly conclude, "Oh, she doesn't love her children". That is simply untrue and very far from the fact. My goal is to love them all equally. Because that's the responsibility of a parent. I'm not quite there, but I'll always be trying. Actively and wholeheartedly.

So what if you don't have the body of a disciplined athlete? So what if your wardrobe could nominate you for an emergency episode of "What Not to Wear?"? And so what if your living room reminds you of every "Before" picture you've seen in home makeovers?

If it's important to you, don't beat yourself up because you're not THERE yet.
You will get there if you put in the work.
In the meantime, it's the trying that's important.
Trying is always enough.
