a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

I'm addicted . . .

to my daily emails from The Daily Groove.  My wonderful and patient therapist recommended this to me when I asked her how she kept herself sane through the daily chaos of raising children.  She said that she read her daily email from this site and it would help her put things in perspective and boy was she right!!! Read yesterdays email . . . I so needed to be reminded of this; it shed such light.
 
 Life Is Messy... Get Over It!

In man's quest to conquer nature, our culture has

developed an unhealthy aversion to the natural
messiness of life.

Heaven forbid you should eat an apple that isn't nice

and round and free of bug bites. Those get made into
applesauce so we never have to see their messiness!

And if our high-tech, Star Trek fantasies were real,

we could avoid the messiness of birth and simply
"beam" babies out of the womb -- without a drop of
blood in sight.

Even if you're a "crunchy" parent who's not afraid

of nature's messiness, there may be other kinds of
messes you abhor, like the messy ways children learn,
explore, and process emotions. Or the messy way *you*
grow through parenthood.

Today, whenever you feel bothered about anything, ask

yourself, "What 'messiness' am I resisting?" Are you
not allowing your *own* process to be messy?

Well, get over it! Life IS messy.


Let life's messes remind you how good it is to be ALIVE!
