Happiness Trumps Perfection!

Today, I was that mom who was in a “tizzy” as we used to tell our mother!  I was scrambling to get things accomplished and in order.  It took me looking in the mirror and then looking down at my bracelet that says “ENJOY THE JOURNEY” to realize that I was that “tizzy” mom for half the day!  After looking the mirror, noticing my bracelet and taking a deep breath, I changed my goal for the day.  My goal was to enjoy a day of happiness, not perfection!  I am renewed and focusing on things that bring me happiness.  I am working on avoiding thoughts of my to-do list!
