Stop being so afraid of getting everything wrong that you can’t appreciate everything you’re doing right.

To myself and other SoulFire Seekers:

I woke up this morning thinking about my to-do list, not today’s… the one from yesterday and the day before… ALL tasks I put on there and never got done. And know they likely won’t get done this week either. Honestly, I did cry. I had a good five-minute, Broadcast News style cry and then got up and got on. I men that’s what we women do, right? But somedays it hurts… it hurts at a soul level.

Today, I want to remind you and me that even on days when things don’t go according to plan, our efforts are not in vain and that imperfection is part of the journey towards growth and success.

To my fellow mothers, I want to acknowledge the incredible juggling act you perform each day—balancing the demands of motherhood with professional aspirations and personal well-being. We are doing an amazing job, even on the days when you feel like you’re falling short.

And to those navigating adult relationships alongside careers and motherhood, I want to remind you that relationships, like life, are imperfect and messy. It’s okay to make mistakes, to have disagreements, and to struggle at times. What matters most is the love, support, and connection we cultivate with our partners, friends, and family members—the laughter shared, the memories made, and the bonds strengthened through life’s ups and downs.

Perfection is an illusion. When we berate ourselves, we risk overlooking the beauty and value of everything we’re already doing right. Let us embrace imperfection with open arms.

Let’s remember to be kind to ourselves. We have the permission of our souls to take time to rest, recharge, and prioritize our own well-being amidst the demands of daily life.

Give yourself permission to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, knowing that each misstep is an opportunity for growth and learning. Celebrate successes, no matter how small, and acknowledge the incredible work you’re doing every single day.

Let us celebrate everything we’re doing right and begin to say “Not today, perfection.”

With love and joy,

Jeny
