In a perfect world, I’d get 8-9 hours of sleep a night
Reality: I get 5-6.
In a perfect world, I’d do my devotion each morning to begin my day on the right foot.
Reality: sadly, I rarely start my day this way, although I do spend my time in the shower talking with God.
In a perfect world, I would have time to do this chore chart daily.
Reality: I clean on the weekends and spend the week wrecking what I cleaned.
In a perfect world, I would always use up all my leftovers.
Reality: I throw let food chill out in the fridge and throw out more than I care to admit.
In a perfect world, I would get a great workout in 5-6 days a week and would do a great stretch before and after.
Reality: I get in a workout about 4 days a week. But, I have to confess, they’re not all stellar. And I RARELY stretch like I should. And by rarely, I mean never. Check out Heather’s post for a little stretching motivation.
In a perfect world I would own all these spring outfits.
Reality: I don’t own any of them, but maybe I will buy some new spring clothes sometime soon. I’ve got a major case of spring fever!
In a perfect world, I’d have a home cooked meal on the table each night and we’d look like this happy family, nightly.
Reality: I get a home cooked meal on the table 3-4 nights a week. But, more nights than not, sadly, we usually look like this couple.
In a perfect world, my appetite would always be on cue and dependable.
Reality: Sometimes I have zero appetite all day, and it makes it hard to eat what I need to eat to fuel my body.
In a perfect world, I’d get together with girlfriends regularly and we’d whisper, share secrets, and eat chocolate.
Reality: I don’t have a close group of girlfriends at the moment. It’s something I’m praying about and for. I think girl time is important.
In a perfect world, my mornings would be slow, relaxing, refreshing, and ready me for the day ahead.
Reality: I’m usually running around like a crazy person, throwing things together, praying I don’t forget something, and rushing out the door.
In a perfect world, I’d learn these lessons once and for all.
Reality: I seem to never learn these lessons. And seem to need re-teaching on a daily basis. Praise the Lord for his grace, understanding, and unconditional love.
I could keep going, but I’ll spare you. 😉
While all these things would be nice, I must tell you that I DO love the imperfect life that I’ve been blessed to live. I’ve been given countless blessings, and don’t want to seem ungrateful.
I’m just doing a little Thinking out Loud.
YOUR turn!!! Tell me something you’d love in a perfect world, and something that is your reality.
