Day 2 - Avoid Perfection
Why does it have to be perfect?
We believe that everyone is judging us and if it's perfect, they will think well of us. But if it's not perfect, they will think poorly of us. Even though they are our family and friends, we believe that our entire relationship will be defined by how well we perform on this holiday.
That's a lot of pressure and stress to put on ourselves, especially when we judge ourselves against professional designers, chefs, and merchandisers who have the skills, tools, experience and budgets to achieve amazing results.
This holiday season, try lowering the bar a little. Don't aim for perfection; aim for authentic and personal. Do the best you can and let go of perfection. No one is judging you but yourself. The important people in your life love you exactly as you are … even if you're not "perfect."
