My name is Julianne and I am a perfectionist.

I’d like to believe I’ve already come to terms with my imperfect self. I mean come on, I am going to be 40 soon. I feel pretty decent in my own skin–except I prefer to keep things on, thank you very much. I don’t particularly like to be reminded of my flaws.

Sharing the difficult parts of my life is not about venting nor is it about boasting. I’m not doing this to bring attention to myself (um anxiety, you can go away now). I am choosing to share more of my imperfect self to shed light on the Goodness of God.

If you think that’s just weird, I’m okay with that. But since you’ve made it through Day 3 (good job!) you might as well stick around. I still have more to write + 28 more days to change your mind.

It’s much easier to talk about the things I’ve already overcome, but these next few days are going to be about my struggle with perfectionism as a wife and mom. If that doesn’t happen I’ll just come back and edit this post. #easypeasylemonsqueezy

Wish me luck! No, seriously.
