Do not dwell so much on creating your perfect life that you forget to live. – Unknown
Have you ever gotten so obsessed with making sure something is perfect that you forget to enjoy it? I have! Think about a vacation you may have planned. You can get so caught up in the planning and the itinerary, focusing on where you need to be next instead of enjoying where you are right now. Think about weddings. Brides and grooms strive to create the perfect day, and when it’s over, they can’t remember anything about that day. Or worse, a small issue, like napkins in the wrong shade of ivory, can turn into a giant catastrophe.
It’s good to have goals and to strive to make things as good as they can be. I want to have the best life possible. But I don’t want to miss out on the life I have right now in trying to make my life perfect. The fact of the matter is, it’s never going to be perfect. Instead of stressing out over them, embrace the imperfections and you may find that they add to your life and make it even better. But the only way you’re ever going to find out is to live your life.
