I was listening to this song by Christina Perri last night, and it got me all kinds of emotional. I just feel like so many women in my close circle of friends have had a rough go at life lately. So much is required and expected of us and yet we just endlessly and tirelessly go and go and go....until we fall down.
Isn't she beautiful?
We fail and feel guilty sometimes. I know I do. Yes, I like to have things perfect, but it just isn't realistic. Not always. Not forever. As someone who thrives on OCD tendencies it's a horrible little pill to swallow. I remember my Mom would tell me, "You can't keep this up forever. At some point when things get really busy in life, something will have to give." I didn't believe her when I was young, but of course I get it now. Per usual, Mom is right.
My house this morning has dead flowers, baskets of laundry, Lego Armageddon, and dishes from last night in the sink. I mean, I'm only human. :)
