Do you strive every year for the perfect holiday? Most of us do, but have you ever stopped to think what that really means? What would that really look like? Aren’t imperfections sometimes what make holiday memories extra fun?
… And what usually happens when our picture-perfect ideas don’t formulate the way we hoped they would? That’s when many of us become unglued, snapping at everyone for their imperfections, not quite realizing that the most imperfect thing of all is our own idea of what beauty and fulfillment really is.
This year, I want to encourage you. Let go of your visions of perfect. Go with the flow. Embrace the here and now.
“More than our loved ones want a perfect holiday, a gourmet meal, or stunning decorations, they want us – our presence. They need us to love them, to find joy in being together, to really savor the moment.” – Davonne Parks, on Beauty through Imperfection
