Kick Perfectionism to the Curb

I found this fabulous gem on one of my new favorite blogs, The Joyful Mother. What a fabulous quote to keep in mind as we start the new year!  Did you know that perfectionism is a form of self abuse?  It is.  The whole “striving and never arriving” thing is the perfect recipe for frustration and later, helplessness (code verbage for depression).

In fact, it’s a very unhealthy standard to set for our kids.  I’m telling you this because I am constantly reminding myself.  I never want my own daughter to strive for perfection-just her personal best.

Enjoy!  That’s all for today from this cold mom, folks.  It was a brisk 40 degrees here when we woke up this morning.  What??!!
