"Perfectionism is slow death." Hugh Prather

Do you believe that perfection will make you happy? Do you subject others to your ridiculous standards? Do you "do nothing" because it won't be perfect? This blog is in dedication to the ridiculous lengths I go to in search for perfection, and the insanity I encounter along the way.

Needing Inspiration

Today (which is now yesterday as it took me awhile to post!) I almost let the enemy of my soul keep me in bed.  I REALLY did not want to get up this morning to go to bootcamp.  The alarm went of, I went into the bathroom.  I looked at my workout clothes and decided I just didn't feel like it.  I got back in bed.  All I could think was "You can't afford to only have ONE workout this week!" "You are just going to beat yourself up" "You'll feel better if you go..."  Shut UP already, OK, OK, I'm getting up!

I got in the car and this song was playing, tell me this doesn't pump you up!! Don't miss listening, this is a seriously GREAT song for the blues! I wish I had more time to just embed the link!  Ugh...

Then I worked out and went to breakfast and had fellowship with other boot campers!  I would have totally missed that! This is a really great group of women, and I am SO glad I signed up 2 years ago and now they are part of my life.  Truly a blessing in the most unexpected place!  On the field I said, "I really want a mushroom, spinach, tomato and egg white omlette (I used to get them all the time at Silver Diner when I was living in DC), and guess what, that exact thing was on the menu!  God is so good, even in the little things :)

Last night we talked about taking kids and cousins to Ft. Worth Kids Museum.  I kind of pooh poohed it because I didn't "feel" like it.  Still wasn't feeling it this morning, but my mother-in-law said they were going anyway so of course, then I was like "Well, be that way, I'M GOING!"  I AM SO GLAD I DID! It was awesome, better than awesome.  Perfect for my kids and the cousins.  Something for every age and we went to see BUGS in the IMAX.  Another thing I whaa whaaed about.  It was great.  I ended up getting us a year's membership!

Here are some pics of a GREAT day!!

Started out with lunch at the Ft. Worth Botanical Gardens.  

 Samuel taking a liking to soccer, Ava looking on!

 Then to the Ft. Worth Art and Science Museum for kids.

The Dino Dig was so fun!

After looking at these pictures, it makes me wonder how many other great memories I may have missed with my bad attitude :(

  1. Boy, can I relate! If I lived life based on my "feelings" I would not get out the door. I use to bargain w/ myself when going to train w/ my running group. I'd tell myself that I'd just get dressed & see how I felt. Then I'd tell myself that I'll just drive to the mtg place & see how I "feel." Just by doing - never did I turn around & go back home.
