Permanently flawed, imperfect, AND beautiful. The best way to be.
Where is the joy in perfection? Life lived in perfection would be boring. There would be no challenges, no goals, because perfection has nothing higher to aspire to. Perfection doesn't allow for change or the growth that often accompanies the space between the change and the new goal.
Accepting yourself as you are now allows you more quality time to give of yourself to what really matters NOW, not after you've "fixed yourself" or "made yourself better", "lost a few pounds", "land your dream account", or find "the perfect mate". Some people are waiting for the magic of better days they believe will appear when they become perfect. The magic is now. The magic is seeing the beauty in the sights, sounds, nuances, feelings, and experiences that are unfolding before your eyes. The beauty is in the spontaneity and the appreciation of what becomes memorable. Flawed is not flawed. Flawed is uniqueness that cannot be captured by another. Treasure your beautiful soul. That is what attracts and repels all that is meaningful in your life. Imperfection IS perfection. It allows us all the freedom to blossom into the unique human with diverse gifts and thoughts that we were meant to be. THAT is beautiful. ~Paisley Rose -------------------------------------------

Lets have a talk about serious things! I haven't been feeling very well in my skin lately, I have a hard time getting out of the house and letting people see me because I'm ashamed of what I look like. Every time I post a selfie I can't help but think it's all a scam, I make sure I take the picture in the perfect light and angle so mainly people won't see my double chin or other stuff I don't like about my face. I always pick the pictures with a part of my face missing because for some reason I can't seem to like the pics with my entire face on. I take about 10 selfies before getting a picture I like enough to post and sometimes I will still delete it the next day. As much as I like getting compliments from you guys because you make me feel good about myself and I try to convince myself that I'm allowed to accept those compliments before even if I controlled the light and the angle of the picture it is somehow still me. But when it comes down to it most of you like the "perfect light and angle" me and don't know what I really look like. You don't see how fat I am or how big my double chin is in those pictures. Most of you would probably not find me as beautiful if you've seen me in real life. I know inner beauty is more important but still, we can all agree that it wouldn't hurt to feel attractive as well. Honestly I don't really know where I am going with this big self-loathing text. I've been thinking about this for a little while and I felt the need to express it because first, it feels good to let the world know how I feel and second, because sometimes when I think about it I don't feel like I deserve what you guys think of me and I feel like I am kind of cheating you in a way. So I guess I will stop this ranting by apologizing for the long endless text and thanking you for reading!

In a perfect world, my little ones would happily play together with no bickering and their favourite word would not be “MUUMMM!" Unfortunately, this is not the case in my #perfectlyimperfect world. To combat these tough toddler moods and to help regulate their use of “Mum”, we love to change up the scenery and head outside.
It’s incredible the difference going outside can have on my little ones’ moods. They instantly become happy, energetic and their little minds are exploding with ideas. Thanks to our newly revived mud kitchen and some beautiful winter weather, we have been spending many hours outside and are all reaping the benefits.
Do you find your little ones’ mood changes when going outside? .

Who did you have in the delivery room??
Luckily John and I are on the same page - nobody else in the room! But this made me laugh SO hard 😂
