It’s easy to beat ourselves up when things don’t go our way. Remember how far we’ve come on bad days, focus on progress not perfection and don’t be afraid to take risks.
This week has been a whirlwind. So much has been going on in our lives lately that it’s honestly been hard to keep up. We’re in the middle of trying to find our first home to purchase while I’ve been juggling the blog, Mamas of The NICU, and still trying to spend time with my family.
I was so stressed out this week that my anxiety has been out of control. Last night while my husband and I were talking, I realized something. We’ve been chasing the wrong thing this entire time. We’ve been focusing on trying to find the perfect home for our family. All along we’ve been focusing on the wrong thing. Whatever home we live in will be perfect because we’ll have each other. I realized that we need to focus on progress not perfection. Buying our first home is a major step for us especially after all that we’ve been through with Tristan in the last year. It’s a major milestone in our lives that we’ve worked so hard for and we should be proud that we are working towards reaching this goal.
Waiting until something is perfect could be the biggest mistake you could ever make. Trust me, I know. Forget about the nerves or anxiety you might be having about something and take the risk. Sometimes a little anxiety can be good. It’s so easy to beat ourselves up when things don’t go our way but we have to remember how far we’ve come on bad days. Focusing on your progress instead of everything being perfect is the key.
