As you grow up…you start to realize that not everything has to be or will ever be perfect.
Maybe you did this too when your just starting out in life you get so excited about decorating for Christmas, everything has to perfect, the tree is a showpiece with fragile ornaments, perfectly arranged.
You show it off to anyone that comes over to the house. Then you have a family and it all goes out the window.
Realized that last night when our Christmas that I ordered online finally arrived. The kids decorated the whole thing. I just sat down and handed them candy canes, popcorn garland, and ornaments, and let them create their perfect tree.
There’s one branch that has 8 candy canes on it, and you know what it’s the most beautiful tree I’ve ever seen.
You just gotta resist the urge to rearrange it and make it perfect while they’re sleeping.
Whether it’s your Christmas tree or your life…It’s in the mess that you find perfection.
