Let the Perfection Go!

"You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step." ~ Martin Luther King

Life is not all about getting things done, it's about getting the right things done!  The results are more important than the time it takes to achieve them.  Sometimes you need to stop and ask yourself if what you're working on is worth the time and effort it's taking.  Is it taking you toward what you really want?  Sometimes we try to achieve perfection (I'm so guilty!), but life is not always easy, perfect or exactly what you hope.  Choose to be grateful for the good things you have, get the things done that matter and let the perfection go!

Be grateful for what is and work with it, not against it.  It's easier to be happy when you're not complaining about your problems.  Try your best to be positive...usually, a change in perception is all it takes.  Instead of focusing on the frustration and what's going wrong, adjust your attitude and focus on making the best of the moment that you have.  After all tomorrow never comes because it's always today and the joy truly is in the journey!

It might sound silly, but I stressed way too much over photographing outfits for Crazy Blonde Life earlier today.  I wanted the outfits to feel more spring like (because hopefully it's coming soon), only, it was freezing outside.  I tried so many different things and finally gave up and added a pair of olive green pants to this leopard coat and over-the-knee boots.  This time of the year, I think we are all tired of bundling up and not many people have 30 different coats to brighten up an outfit. I ended up really liking the pants with this outfit instead of denim because they were a little unexpected and made the outfit feel "not so basic" and I think this color green is basically a neutral!  My Stuart Weitzman boots have been life savers this season because they keep my legs so warm.  I'm very cold natured (with the exception of a hot flash here and there) so I need all the help I can get staying warm!  I was planning to wear a burgundy hat, but then realized that my jacket had a hood so I added this cute Stella & Dot bag instead.
