“I will hold myself to a standard of GRACE not perfection”
Sometimes the perfectionist in me is so strong that it takes me out.
It happens more often that I’d like to admit.
A few weeks ago, my friend handed me this frame. I almost cried. Hi my name’s Lisa and I’m an emotional perfectionist.
My husband looked at me and said, “can we make wallpaper out of this?” Yeah, it can get ugly.
This is hanging in a place that I walk by all day, every day. It brings me joy.
This is my gift to all of you who also struggle with the ugly side of perfectionism. ps. You’re not alone.
Thank you Emily for this beautiful gift ~ xx
