I shouldn't care this much (but I do). I should just let this go (but it would look amazing!). I should be more focused on the kids (wait they are gluing, cutting and painting along with me and having a blast). Why can't I just stop caring so much?! I shouldn't be like this (wait what?).
In my years in childcare I learned about a "Why not? attitude." A why not? attitude meant when a child or parent came with a request to do things differently I tried to think "why not?" rather than just "no". I love using this thought as I interact with those around me. So why don't I love using it on myself?
Why not throw a last minute humongous party and love it? Why not go crazy creative and feed that wish-I-were-an-interior-decorator/party-planner-need deep inside that only gets to come out once every few years? I admit, I wouldn't want to live every week of my life going this crazy (and sleep deprived) over a party. However, when I look back on this week there is not anything I would change. So why not just love the go-crazy-about-a-fairy-party side of me?
Why not just love me?
