I want to look in the mirror and just see me.
Not the fact that my hair doesn't look like a girl I saw on Instagram.
Or the fact that my nose is a little crooked.
Or the circles under my eyes.
Or the way my thighs look in jeans.
Or all of the other imperfections I can SO EASILY point out.
I want to come home in the evening or on the weekend and be completely fine resting and not doing anything (anything that feels like work or something to "prove" myself, that is).
It seems like being busy has become the gold standard. As a woman, as a mom, as a business owner, even just as a person in general, everyday I'm bombarded with things I should be doing to be better in each of those roles. I don't know about you, but it's really exhausting.
Instead, I want to notice these things when I look in the mirror:
I want to notice my kindness - how it's creating change in small ways (even when I don't see it in real time)
I want to notice the love I have for my family - the investment I have in my girls and devotion to spending time with my loved ones.
I want to notice the ways in which my business helps people create beautiful spaces.
I want to acknowledge that health is a process and I'm trying to do what's best for my body.
And most of all, I want to notice that I'm exactly where I need to be and more than enough just as I am.
