Everyone's Got To Face Down The Demons

    The title of this post was taken from the song Jumper by Third Eye Blind.

     Demand improvement not perfection. Often times I get caught up in trying to be the perfect mother, spouse, daughter, sister, teacher and friend that I lose sight of who I am and end up feeling like a failure. What I've decided this year is that I will not demand perfection of myself, after all that is simply setting myself up for failure. What I can choose to do instead is to demand improvement. I can work hard to build upon where I am and became better than who I am in different areas of my life. I can allow for errors and mistakes and simply be happy with the improvements I see. After all, one day the kids will look something like this and it won't really matter.
