What if HAPPY was the new PERFECT?
What if the trending pinterest pin or the magazine cover portrayed happy as perfect instead of perfect as happy?
What would that look like for you?
Would there be a pile of dishes in the sink while your family was lounging in the living room after dinner laughing and playing rummikub?
Would there be a load of laundry in the basket on the end of the bed while your family was laying there snuggled in and dreaming up stories of the next adventure you are planning?
Would there be toothbrush spray on the bathroom mirror while your family heads out for a bicycle ride to the park for the afternoon?
Would it be ok to run to the store in yoga pants, hot mess hair and last night's mascara to grab the creamer you forgot to tell Alexa to add to the grocery list .. because in that moment creamer is what makes you happy!
What if we've been doing it all wrong? What if we focused on what happy feels like instead of what happy looks like? What if the feeling were to override the visual?
What if you drove through your neighborhood on a Saturday afternoon and you saw a dad playing catch with his kids instead of mowing the lawn?
Would you look in the mirror and say "I love you just the way you are today" on spite of what you might perceive as extra?
What if taking a hike, going to the beach, sitting around the fire, or going for a walk took precedence?
Our relationships might look a little different. Our families might look a little different. Our homes, desks, cars, and yards might look a little different.
We are not saying we should neglect everything and let the structure of our lives go to shit.
What we are saying is that maybe if we focused more on happy being our perception of perfect everything else would be easier.
There might be more ease and flow in getting the "chores" done.
Give yourself some grace and choose happy as your new perfect today😊
