I was asked by Dove and Walgreens to share what I thought beauty is. Immediately a few thoughts came to my mind…
- Skin Deep
- In the Eyes of the Beholder
- Finding Your Strong
I thought I could share a picture of me with my boys, or maybe one of me post workout. But they didn’t feel right. You see as moms I think we set ourselves up to fail. That’s right. To FAIL. I know that for me, I thought I had to be perfect in every moment, and at every turn. The problem with that is perfection isn’t attainable. Life isn’t meant to be lived perfectly.
What if instead of trying to be the perfect mom, the perfect wife, have the perfect home, and the perfect life we tried to live life in the moment. If we just did the best we could each day instead of trying for perfection I think we’d all find that beauty is everywhere.
The run we found time for the other day…
The extra snuggles you got together because they do grow up way too quickly!
Remembering that he doesn’t know that you forgot the team pictures, or why you’re upset that you are running late, but they beauty is that he loved the extra time he got to spend together just the two of you.
A Beautfull lap and a full heart!
The next time you are feeling overwhelmed and run down by life, take a moment to remember that life it’s about perfection, but rather being present you will likely find that Beauty is everywhere. Including the smile on your own face!
