When it’s GOOD ENOUGH!

Trying to be perfect is exhausting and, honestly, if you achieved perfection…you would be annoying and not someone I’d want to hang out with. HA!

My current motto is “That’s GOOD ENOUGH!”

What I mean by that is some days I’m feeling great. I’m well rested, Henry is a happy little peanut and I’m able to take him to the library, playground, water park and do the laundry with ease.

But other days…and there are many…I am just exhausted!

On those days, I operate from the “GOOD ENOUGH!” philosophy.

If I get home from work and I’m tired and can’t get off the couch, Henry and I will watch kids shows for 2 hours and it’s fine.

If Henry is fussy and I can’t soothe him and I have to put his binky in while we’re out and about…I just do it and it’s fine.

If Henry eats frozen Trader Joe’s meatballs 2 times a week because I don’t have fresh food for him…it’s fine and he is perfect.

I think we all need to remember is that one instance of “not being perfect” will not determine the total outcome of us or our children.

We become fully realized human beings who are molded from MANY moments…and if the majority of them are good, then we are just FINE.

I’ll end this blog post here because it’s GOOD ENOUGH!

    You’re a good mom!!  My daughter had her first yesterday. A little girl!  We are beyond excited!!  I noticed on your blog a while back a beautiful prayer hung on the wall, that you read to Henry every night. Can you tell me where you got it?  I would love to get it for our beautiful Emma Grace!  Thank you, Courtney. Barbara

    Hi Courtney. Where can I get the framed bible verse you gave framed for Henry? I just love it! Would like to get it for our new, first grandchild born on the 18th. Thanks! Barbara

  3. you’re right, good enough often relieves one’s mind, there’s enough things to stress about in our lives, so just letting go some of them is ok too…

    Can i just dispense advice regarding Henry’s carseat? The headrest is too low, it should be placed 2 fingers above his shoulders. And the chest clip… on his chest! 🙂 He’s such a cutie, love his blonde hair!
