Glad to be Less Than Perfect

“I’m glad to be less than perfect”

My mom left me the above message on a post-it note next to my bed a good 5 or so years ago. To this day, it still comes to mind often. It reminds me to relax and stop shooting for something that doesn’t exist. Nobody is perfect and trying to act and perform that way is unrealistic. Remembering I’m less than perfect takes a ton of pressure off. It allows me to take a step back, breathe and know all I can do is my best in any given circumstance. Trying to be perfect will do nothing but disturb my calm and cause me harm. Because in trying to be perfect, one will always fail. When one gives up striving for that which does not exist, there is room for so, so much more.

Bday 001

So I lived my life this weekend and celebrated properly–but it was back to my new eating habits today. It’s a little difficult–after all the treats I’m craving sugaaa like mad. I feel like it’s the kind of thing where you loose your taste for sweets after a few weeks avoiding them–but as soon as you go back it’s worse than before! Ahhhhh.

the best high-fat low carb meal on earth.

After another small adjustment period, I’m sure I’ll be right back on track—have a good evening everyone!
