Our house has been in shambles lately.
We've had a lot of company over the last couple weeks which means clean house to mess it up again. And then clean it again for the next guests.
I love having people over, but I just always feel like everything has to be perfect.
I don't just feel like it should, but I really want it to be.
We have too much furniture with nowhere to put it, paint swatches taped to the walls, and dishes almost always on the kitchen counter. And I let those imperfections get to me.
Recently though, I've been telling myself that things don't always have to be perfect.
I do think things need to be comfortable and it always helps when things are beautiful, so that you can rest and your guests feel expected and welcome. But comfortable and beautiful doesn't always mean finished and perfect and just-the-way-you-want-it.
And I'm learning to be ok with that.
What about you? Are you a perfectionist? Do you ever let those tendencies take away from enjoying life and the little things? What do you do to control that?
