People. Marriage. Life. Work. Us.
Perfect is never the same for everyone, it never is and it never will be. So often young women enter into their adult lives striving for perfection....someone else's perfection. They seek the perfect little job with the perfect little wardrobe. They desire the perfect little marriage with the perfect man. They want to live in the perfect houses with perfect cars. This is the real world people. It's not Stepford.
Who says that you have buy a big house and fill it with fancy furniture to be happy? Who says you have to like your spouse all the time? Who says your children have to be quiet at Target and Church and on a plane and in the mall? Who says you have to have a job doing the perfect thing right out of college? Who says you have to be skinny and tan? Who says you need long hair or short hair or tight pants or short skirt? Who says you're too fat or too skinny or too smart or not nearly smart enough? WHO SAYS??????
Friends, let me tell you something.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU.
Who you are, who your husband is, who your children are is all just fine. Stop comparing yourselves to other people. Stop using your friends as your life compass. They aren't you. You don't have to get married because everyone else is getting married, you don't have to have a baby because all of your friends have had a baby. You don't have to buy a big house or drive a new car. You don't need to lose weight because your friends are all skinny, you don't need to go into debt in Graduate school because you don't think you're smart enough.
YOU need to pray about YOUR live. YOU need to let GOD be YOUR compass. Stop making the decisions that you think are the right ones because of everyone else- make your life choices based on what fits you right now. BE HAPPY.
GIRLS, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU.
Love & Peace.
