I was going to wait until I wrote the PERFECT post to publish this photo.
It’s my favorite from our recent family photo shoot.
Our girls were standing on a sloped hill of dried winter leaves. I was a little worried that our youngest might fall. But then our 4-year-old said, “If she falls, I will catch her and save her.” (And I believed her).
Do you ever find yourself waiting for things to be “perfect” before you take action?
I’m learning to let go of that.
- I may not be able to go on a 3-mile run today, but I CAN go on a walk before dinner.
- I may not be able to give a hundred dollars to a cause I care about, but I CAN give ten dollars.
- I may not be able to read all 25 books that are sitting in my to-read pile, but I CAN read a chapter in one of them.
- I may not be able to buy my friend a $100 pair of jeans, but I CAN buy her a $5 Starbucks card.
Today IS the perfect day to do what I’ve been wanting to do. (And today is your perfect day too).
