6 Days of Journaling. I am almost one week in. This week the quote is about striving for perfection and how sometimes perfection is not necessary. I definitely used to be a perfectionist in may ways. I had a tough time saying “no” to things and I wanted to do it all. I found that I cannot do everything if I want to do it well, let alone perfect. I keep finding that it is important to give what you can in your own unique way. I can not keep the house immaculate, but I can keep it clean. I cannot cook every meal, but overall, we will be healthy. I cannot change the world on my own, but I can be an example to my children and to others in the small ways that I can.
On my picture today, I chose to write out the lyrics to a few of my favorite tunes. The first board on the fence is “Somewhere over the rainbow/what a wonderful world,” by Isral Kamakawiwo’ole. The second post is “Imagine” by John Lennon. The final board is “The Promise,” by Tracy Chapman.
