Celebrate YOU Sunday is a series featuring a different female within our community every Sunday, providing them with a platform to celebrate something about themselves. Celebrating yourself is an important piece to cultivating self love and falls within the building block of self care. To be featured in Celebrate YOU Sunday, please contact me here.
“What an honor it is to be a part of Celebrate You Sunday! Today I want to celebrate the fact that my life is messy. As an admitted perfectionist and strong type A personality, this seems like an odd thing to be celebrating as I thrive off of order, structure, and organization but ever since having my sweet baby boy last March my life has been what I like to call “beautiful chaos”.
Life can be messy. For me that looks 3:00 am feedings, poopy diapers, and looking at myself in the mirror wondering if I will ever look well rested again. Lol 🙂 Amidst the mess there is an underlying beauty. The quiet moments when I hold my son and realize that he is the most precious gift I’ve ever been given. The moment when my husband tells me I’m beautiful even when I’m covered in spit up or snot. The simplicity of going outside and feeling the warm sunshine on my face and realizing that in the chaos, the moments when I feel messy and out of control, I am just where I need to be.
Today I am celebrating the fact that I am not perfect. I am celebrating the fact that I fail. We are given the choice each and everyday to celebrate ourselves or tear ourselves down. I am learning that both take up the same amount of energy. I am working to continue to celebrate myself and this life I’ve been blessed with each and everyday. Its work friends, but it’s worth it. Cheers to you and to me and to this beautiful, messy, imperfect life!”
