Happy to be Imperfect

Day 16 if 31 Days of Happy

Happy Imperfection.


I am definitely not a perfectionist.  I'm completely, unabashedly aware that I am not perfect...so how can an imperfect person contemplate doing something with perfection?  I can't fathom it.


Although, as a side note, I do expect perfection from my surgeon that I or someone I love may need someday...I'm just saying...


Anyways, I've been sewing like a crazy woman this week.  I've managed to make an ottoman cover, two pillow covers, fabric letters of the alphabet for Lucy for Christmas, and repaired my favorite chambray shirt.


I'll share my pillows and ottoman pics with you later this week...along with another little thing that makes me happy.


Everything I made displays mistakes.  It's a far cry from professional looking, but it's good enough for me.  And good enough is better than perfection.  Because good enough = done and perfection= never starting.


I say...embrace your imperfection.  Shout it from the roof top.  God shows Himself when we do...He can actually use us then.
