the perfect protest...

i love brene brown's work. this is a very important protest, don't you think?
i know i try too hard, expend too much energy in the pursuit of perfection.
its kinda sneaky and creeps up on me.
only when i find myself really feeling crazy do i
then see i'm practicing perfect just a bit too much.
so this is a reminder to my vulnerable, soft, painty, napping self.
its ok.
i hang up perfection at the door and am off to play with my daughter today,
delightfully, messily and splendidly imperfectly...

sparkle & twirl all day long
dear, imperfectly wonderful ones...
