Just breathe

I’m not perfect. I make mistakes and I get angry. Sometimes, I get overwhelmed. There are things that are beyond my control. Things that make me want to scream. Things that make my chest hurt. Things that try to put a dent in my day. But then, well, there are those small happenings that I see as blessings. Like an email from a bride thanking me for making her feel beautiful. Or a big glass of chocolate milk. Or the sunlight streaming into my office. Or the perfect song playing at the perfect time. Reminding me that it’s just another day. Just breathe. (If you want to hear the song that made me smile, click here.)

And just to prove I’m not perfect, here’s a very un-perfect shot. But I love it, because even with it’s flaws, you can still see ME. Happy Thursday!

    I know exactly what you mean I feel absolutely unperfect lately and There are days when I can love it and days when it can make me cry. Those days I have to remember to breathe.
