Tomorrow I am having a few friends over. I have the day off and am going to maximize the day. Here’s what I am trying new:
–leaving the puzzle up: my family is always working a puzzle at our dining room table. I thought about moving it, but decided not to, we have been working the puzzle for more than a month. It’s what we do as a family. I am leaving the puzzle out.
–apologize: i will not apologize for anything in my home. It’s my home and I love it. We live here with two beautiful and energetic children. Our home is clean, crazy, and ours. Normally I would say something like, “sorry about the mess” etc. I love my home until someone comes over and then I start the, “I am not worthy” internal speech. Not doing it tomorrow. If you are coming to my house you are my friend and I love you enough to share my home with you. This is part of me. This is my family.
–obsess over the details: tomorrow I am going to have fun. I won’t obsess over that spot on the counter. I won’t obsess that person who may not be having fun. I won’t obsess over anything.
I am me. You are you. We aren’t people in magazines.
Imperfect is perfect.
