We live in a world today where we feel things need to be perfect. We must have the perfect house, career, family, car, and vacations. Just do a search on Pinterest for ‘home decor’ and you’ll find there is no shortage of what home perfection looks like. That constant flow of imagery gets hammered into our heads, reminding us that perfection looks like this and that your’s is not good enough. I can guarantee you those same images have laundry baskets, kids toys, and piles of shoes thrown about behind the photographers tripod.
This picture captures beautifully how the ‘perfect home’ appears to most of us. However, if you look closely, it only offers a glimpse of real life behind the gates.
