Today I realized that I don't have to be the most perfect at everything I do so that it's the most "Pintrest" worthy. I don't have to make every.single.goodie I pin. I don't have to attend every.single.event this Christmas season. I don't have to give every.single.family member a gift. I don't have to send the.entire.world our Christmas card. I don't have to create the.best.birthday.party ever. I don't have to make every.single.craft I discover. I don't have to make it.ALL.from.scratch. I don't have to be.sucked.into social media's expectations.
All I have to do is find the simplest/shortest route at making the hearts of my own little family happy.
Sometimes that means, sitting still long enough to let my baby find my lap.
Or fixing my 3YO's tangled necklace...again.
Sometimes it means sharing a box of $0.39 Mac n Cheese and a movie.
It doesn't have to be fancy, original, new, elaborate, clever, awe-inspiring. or even interesting.
Find out what makes your husband and children smile. And do that.
You just might be surprised.
