“You see, being organized is not about being PERFECT; it’s about customizing the whole world to work for you.” ( Thank you @alyssakapitointeriors for setting an office organizational goal that holds the bar VERY high- truly perfection! Now for some purging...)

Hi everyone. I would like to introduce you to a little online project I started a few weeks ago. I have been reluctant to share with my inner circle for reasons I can't justify anymore. I guess criticism and judgement were two factors which is silly because this project is about the opposite of that. Over the last year I got sucked into what I like to call the "fake" vortex. That's when you see all these perfect pictures online of peoples houses, bodies, jobs and lives and you sit there either striving to keep up or feel sad because your life doesn't look anything like these online ones. So I created @authenticallyimperfect a social hub to share what real life looks like and celebrating the small every day wins. (Like today I found my favorite @t2tea at more than half price 🙌🙌) It's also a place to share books, films, recipes, ideas and places.
Today I attended a lunchen that my Mum invited me along to where guest speaker @jamilarizvi talked about all the insecurities that I have felt in the workplace and in life. The feeling of not being good enough, relevant enough or smart enough. I would often say things like "oh there's so many people doing that why would mine be any different" and today I answered that question "because it's ME doing it." So check out my insta page and if it looks like something for you then follow me, message me and add to this space. I don't want it to just be my voice. If you have a great book/cafe/dog park/ experience/ Devonshire Tea (seriously, tell me if you find good Devonshire Tea) recommendation then let me share it.
If this doesn't interest you then that's okay I'll still like you or secretly hate you, either way my feelings will remain unchanged about you. I hope ya'll like it. Stay imperfect ✌

Last night I was home late, cleaned the kitchen and prepped for the next day.
The next day came waaayy to fast (hitting the snooze button at 0515) before finally crawling out to get coffee....then chasing my son around to get out the door.

This was my motto for today, keep going. Sometimes we just have to keep going despite how tired we are.

Here are 7 ways that I'm messy and imperfect:
- Although most things are neat on top of my desk, if you were to open up my desk drawers, you'd ask yourself how the fuck I run a business. - I can be nosy and ask too forward of questions. -I'll wear the same leggings to the gym for multiple days in a row, often without underwear. - I can get insecure when I don't know how someone feels about me. - I can make things about me or take things personally when they have nothing to do with me. - I am bad at calling my parents back. - I watch TV and eat chocolate in bed even though I know better and I'm not the best sleeper. .

Rule breaker. Mess maker. Anti-nap taker. Sounds just like his parents to me! #icant #teachthemyoung #getupstandup #bethechange #ourfuturefirst #beunique #beyou #lifeismessy #breaktherules #napsareprettycoolthough

When your life is as messy as your hair 🤷‍♀️👌 💇‍♀️ #lifeisgood #lifeisbeautiful #lifeismessy

As my 32nd birthday comes to a close, I have so many thoughts and feels I want to share. 💕

When I look back at where my life was only a short while ago, I just want to shake my younger self and scream, “Wake up! There is a whole world waiting for you! Your wildest dreams are just waiting to be had!”

Only a few years ago, I used to make excuses for why I was unhappy. 👉🏻I was staying at a job that gave me soul crushing anxiety because “there just wasn’t anything else out there to do with my degree.” 👉🏻I stayed in an awful relationship because “no one else was ever going to love me” or “I was getting too old to start over.” 👉🏻 I didn’t workout or shoot for my fitness goals because “it just wasn’t possible with my body type and genetics.” 👉🏻I couldn’t travel because “I just couldn’t afford to spend the money.”

The reality is that’s all complete bullshit. My life is exactly what I make of it. If I don’t like it, I need to do something about it...NOT MAKE EXCUSES.

There will always be a reason why not: not enough money 💵, not enough time, it just isn’t possible, my family 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 is holding me back, I’m getting too old. The reality is, if you want it bad enough, you will make it happen REGARDLESS of your circumstances. And if you aren’t completely ready, not 100% sold on living your dream life, you will make excuses.

➡️ If that statement pisses you off 😡, there is a reason and you need to do something about it.

Stop telling yourself why not, and start believing in yourself 100%. It will change your life. 💕💕💕 #realtalk #stopmakingexcuses #anythingispossible #dreamscometrue #birthdaythoughts #happybirthday #thisis30something #turquoisejewelry #blueeyes #fullheart #nomakeupday #summertan #lifeistough #inspirechange #takecontrol #wisdom #wisdomwednesday #jacksonville #jacksonvillenc #crystalcoastnc #liveanadventure #crazycatlady #lifeisgood #beardeddragonmom #lifeismessy

In learning how to embrace the life you have, we have to do the work of letting go of the life we imagined for ourselves. For some, this is not an easy process, not at all! Im one of those. I had a fairytale life in my mind, largely due to the fact that for several years, the fairytale was a reality. Grieving the loss of that fairytale life and gaining acceptance for what is now, has been quite a process and had required and emmense amount of honest, hard work. We need support systems, whether it be friends, community, loved ones, counseling, books or teachers, we can't do this work alone, nor should we try! I used to believe that I could do it on my own, that I was strong enough, capable enough, if I just tried harder. This only made everything more difficult, made the task of self acceptance harder because ultimately, I'd fail. The striving to be the spiritualy perfect being would inevitably come crashing down at my feet.
We are not perfect, we are messy, emotional, conditioned, scared and confused. Embracing life means embracing all of these qualities. Not striving so hard to rid yourself of your flaws, expecting perfection or an enlightened state of being in the world. Yes, work on yourself, find support, cultivate awareness and practices that will assist you in your growth. But don't expect perfection, allow yourself to fail, and be flawed sometimes. Just be careful not to stay in your failures too long, don't make the mistake of believing that they are who you are.
You are so much more! The simple fact that you are here means that you are worthy of a life, a life that you can enjoy and be happy with. You do have a choice, you can make changes, see more clearly. You can chose to embrace your life and let go of that which does not serve you. #embracelife #lettinggo #youcandoit #spiritualtruth #selflove #selfworth #awakenings #getsupport #dontgiveup #believeinyourself #personalgrowth #overcome #growingpains #secondchances #suicideprevention #alifeworthliving #lifegetsbetter #seekhelp #committment #selftherapy #mindfullness #onestepatatime #findyourownway #lifeismessy #youdontneedtobeperfect #embraceyourfears

lol ...when you know baseball season is in full swing #seedseverywhere #lifeismessy #countingmyblessings

I’ve been getting back in the studio and on my mat at home since coming out of das booot and it feels so good to move again! 🎉🙏🏻 Although, one injury to the next... last week I was leaving the vets office with both of my 95lb dogs when one of them bolted for the vets’ cat that was just wandering outside. My thumb got stuck in the leash. Aside from being another traumatic experience (Indy has never liked cats her whole life) I now have a sprained thumb. 🤦🏼‍♀️

I am still trusting the universe has my back 💪🏼 just another bump in the road & at least I’m going camping for the next three days & @widespreadpanichq on Sunday at @redrocksamphitheater ! #lifeismessy #yogivibes #practicedaily #trusttheprocess #doepicshit

Let the lights dim down a notch. We all have our issues and things we’re dealing with. It’s not glitz & glamour all the time. It’s struggle, it’s up and down, it’s doubt and it’s perseverance. It’s ok to be depressed sometimes, it’s essential actually. One cannot know the beauty of sunshine without knowing the darkness. 🖤 📸 & Makeup @peckallison

Ambrose and Colette continue to grow and keep their parents on their toes! I love this photo because it reminds me that life is often messy and muddy but we are safe because we are in God's hands even though we don't always feel His presence.
God bless you! - Fr. Simon

I often find myself saying that “I’m a mess” life feels all over the place sometimes. And I used to think that it wasn’t okay, that I needed to be organized and have everything together. Welll life doesn’t always workout like that. Our daily routines get messed up, life can be stressful, crazy and we don’t need to have everything together for it to be beautiful 🙌🏻✨
