noun 1. the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying; keen pleasure; elation:
Practice makes perfect is something I used to believe. I would strive in vain to be perfect in every way. I wanted so badly to be the perfect wife, the perfect mom, the perfect hostess, and the perfect daughter. I thought if only I could try harder, learn more skills, push myself to the limit, then I would be safe; I would be worthy; I would be good enough.
Over the years I have learned iron does sharpen iron; discipline is good; healthy habits are beneficial; and love is not based on perfection. I am Joy. I am kind hearted. I love much. I am a mother. I am a wife. I do my best and put in my 100% in whatever I do. And I am comfortable with my imperphections.
