Yes, my Christmas tree is still up.
And I’m wearing my husband’s pajamas (already).
And my house hasn’t been clean since who knows when.
But I’ve got my planner out, and I’m ready for the new year.
I’ve decided to cut myself some slack and give myself some grace this year. It’s all to easy to let the guilt set in. I didn’t bake Christmas cookies with Hudson, or hide a little elf around our house each day. I didn’t get a perfect (or even a screaming) photo with Santa. We didn’t put every single Christmas decoration out. I didn’t put perfect bows on all of Hudson’s gifts. I haven’t sent out thank you cards. We didn’t get all dressed up for New Year’s Eve. I haven’t blogged. I didn’t take picture perfect photos.
In reality, I’ve been pregnant, tired, and sick the entire holiday season….and I’m not complaining. I’m thrilled to be expecting baby #2. But with that means I need to let go of all these things that really don’t matter. Hudson had the best Christmas. And so did we.
So I’m letting my standards slip a little and focusing on what really matters. Grace, not perfection is my goal for 2015. Want to join me?
