Pursuing Perfection is Snatching Your Peace.
Today’s the day to create the systems you want instead of living with a system that feels unproductive, fragmented and counterintuitive. Our home, like other areas in life, function systematically. Are you leaving it to chance or are you intentional about the vision, direction and intention for your home atmosphere, family and inner well being?
Does clutter cause you to feel claustrophobic, irritable and impatient? I know, me too. But I made the decision to be my own champion because no one was coming to save me from all this stuff!
It takes a certain level of bravery to stop what’s not working, learn what will work in any area and then lean into it. This isn’t forced but it’s a move towards ease and grace for you, now.
If the goal is perfection then the outcome will be frustration. Instead, what if the goals include being productive, being seen and heard by those you live with and getting the relief you need to get this done, once and for all.

"The word no is a complete sentence. But often times we want to explain why we're saying it or even apologize for using the word. We've determined that saying no is being negative. But in reality, saying no is one of the the most powerful tools we have when setting healthy boundaries".
