An imperfect life by jodi hills 
An awesome collection of inspirational thoughts, short stories and celebrations of imperfection. A must read and share.  Sweet little book. 

In the world today, one can often feel bombarded with what the social media and interwebs define as "perfect". More, more, more.....

I love this card from Emily McDowell Studio she nails it here:
"I will not compare myself to strangers on the internet. It's so hard, isn't it? The downside of having so much access to inspiration and information at our fingertips is that it's easy to get caught up in how amazing/accomplished/fun other people's lives appear. It's a trap! WE can't compare our real lives to other people's carefully curated highlight reels. It's just not the same thing."

I bought 10 of these. 

The little book above and these simple cards, started a beautiful exploration and celebration of "imperfection".  It also started an important dialogue with my daughter that has been very moving. Sharing this book with her and hearing her thoughts was priceless. 

Here are some other inspirations for people who, like me, need to know that being imperfect is OK.

Its a Wonderful (Imperfect) Life by Joan C. Webb 
A great little book of devotions for those of us who have to make sure "everything is perfect".  Loved it. 

The Gifts of Imperfection. Brene' Brown
I just started this book but I am excited and already inspired. Brene' Brown has another book that looks great called Daring Greatly. She has a wonderful blog I highly recommend you can find HERE.
