"Get real. Share something you're struggling with right now."
Get real. What great words. It was pretty easy to write about what I'm struggling with and once I actually put it down on the blog, I felt freer. I'm having a devil of a time remembering to be content in my life. I always seek to improve things and I always want to try and make things the absolute BEST that they can be. All of that really just means that I can turn into a control freak/I get myself into pricey situations that I have to figure my way out of. Ugh.
The scripture Proverbs 15:17 has been speaking to me lately has been a great source of comfort and inspiration in my struggle and I am so very happy to share it with y'all.

I have been repeating this to myself and have found great comfort in this verse. Hopefully, my need to be a perfectionist will subside as time goes on. It's ok to take a deep breath and let things be so long as everyone is happy. Because, really, no one is going to notice the stain on the table cloth at the dinner party, or the skid across my very best dress shoes, or the fact pretty much all my dishes are chipped...I am a hulk when I do dishes, whoops.
What are you struggling with and do you have any inspiration that has been helping you work through it?
