    I loved this post!

    Progress, not perfection is a belief I’ve adopted in the past few years. This coming from a reformed perfectionist. Like you, trying to be perfect made me miserable and I got tired of being miserable.

    Today I focus on doing my best, and making the best of every day. Whatever doesn’t get done is far less important than what does get done. It’s a more productive and happier way to live!

    Have a grateful day!

    It’s a good thing when you try to be perfect but you don’t need to feel dreadful when the job always doesn’t get done in a perfect way. It’s okay if it’s good. You are making progress. That’s the principle.

    Sometimes an imperfect moment turns into a serendipitous event. I am trying to learn that too.

    I don’t know if this helps, but I’m married and still fall really short of perfection and spending the amount of time I wish I could with my kids. I think it’s great that you laugh more and you obviously do a lot for your kids. And here’s a confession: I have stopped washing soccer shirts and socks between practice and games. It was stressing me out to get the laundry done and they don’t sweat that much anyway.

    Thanks for visiting, Elizabeth, and for the encouraging words. It’s hard to do and have it all so I am trying to scale back and simply do my best–which is definitely short of perfect! Great uniform tip, too!

    I love this and I’ve been in process, just learning to be okay with the days that are short of perfection. “Instead I spent time thinking about the successes of the day” — I like that! Thanks for the tip =)

    Thanks so much for visiting, Sherry! I fall short daily, but try to keep the perspective throughout.
