Who wants to be perfect, anyway?


Let me tell you a little story… in the past week, I burnt my oat milk twice, ran against at least 3 doors (okay, Max always suggest I’d wear my glasses more often, hehe), cut my finger while cooking, forgot the remains of the dinner in the oven before our last longer trip and I still didn’t repair Max’ jacket which he’d been asking be for for weeks. I’ve felt irritated and under the weather and the autumn depression was taking hold of me strongly.

At the same time, I’ve managed to accomplish so many things this past week: I took care of my love who was struck down with the flu, accompanied him to two doctors, cooked something fresh and healthy every evening, meditated, practiced yoga for at least an hour every single day, sorted and edited around 4500 pictures from France, answered all e-mails and wrote and published a new interesting blog post every second day.

As you can see, the success and failures outweigh each other at the end of such a week and isn’t that lovely? I actually take such a week as a good one at the beginning of the weekend. And a good week should be celebrated, right? I love doing that with a glass of bubbly Carta Nevada Semi Seco by Freixenet* and my beloved one. And then, I look back at the week and smile to all the little things that didn’t go as planned. That’s life, right? Somethings just don’t follow your plan but don’t let that drag you down!

Nobody is perfect

„Nobody is perfect“ is such a true sentence, by the way. We women have got soo many things to do on a daily basis and nobody expects us to be perfect handling everyday life. Who wants to be perfect, anyway? Perfect is boring!

Instead, we should be proud of ourselves, us power ladies, who do so well in our jobs, as mothers and sisters and best friends and in our free time, doing sports and whatnot. We should celebrate us women for all the things we manage to accomplish every day of the week, because that, in fact, is a lot! Even even if some things don’t work out as planned from time to time, we are doing a damn fantastic job all in all!

Do you celebrate your everyday-success from time to time? And of which achievement are you particularly proud right now? Do let me know in the comments!
