26 Days of Christmas

If you know me at all you know how much I LOVE Christmas!!  If I could have Christmas for months ... that would happen!  This year has been a little harder though ... I'm having a harder time getting into the Christmas Spirit.  
So ... in my efforts to get into Christmas ... and fast ... this is what I plan to do ... I am going to do one thing a day (maybe even more, but at least one) that is all Christmas and blog and Instagram about it!  Instead of 12 days of Christmas it's 
How exciting!!  More for me than anyone else I'm sure!  
What better way for day 1 than decorating!!!  Not just any decorating ... MY ROOM!!! I brought out my ornaments and lights tonight ... The Christmas music is playing ... only thing to top it off ... ELF!!!

A Perfect World

We have all thought this:
"in a perfect world I would ..."
"in a perfect world I would be ..."
"in a perfect world ..."
But what is a perfect world? Well ... it's fictional right?
So what world do we live in? 
 If we are constantly wondering what could be instead of focusing on what is, we are creating a thought pattern for ourselves that end up getting us out of where we are and wondering something that isn't or ever will be. 
I'm not saying not to dream ... but if I am constantly thinking "perfect world" or the "perfect situation" I'm 100% setting myself up for disappointment or failure.  So, how then do I get myself out of a "what if" kind of thinking into a "this is" kind of thinking? 
None of us are perfect in anyway ... we are human.  So why do we have this standard of living up to perfect? We will constantly be viewing ourselves as failing then.
There's nothing wrong with striving to do your best ... but there's a huge difference in being and doing your best and being perfect.
