Perfectly Imperfect


Amen, Julia...

I have a long history of wanting to be instantly good at things. I have written about this problem quite a lot recently and as a result I keep being shown the imperfectness of all things. And I think I am FINALLY being clued into the magical secret that NO ONE IS PERFECT and that's OK...

Oh the stress that has been melting away!

For some reason, we have begun to think that we all have to be perfect or a professional at things (I blame TV) or else we need to not even try. Is it just me? I am sure a lot of this is self imposed so I am making a very conscious effort to STOP IT.

It may be a long recovery with some setbacks along the way...a stray obsessive worry that I've done something "wrong" or asking one too many questions to make sure "I have it down" before even starting a project...but I vow to get over myself and jump into things with the knowledge that, Hey...I might do this wrong the first time around.

There isĀ  a lot of freedom in that thought...
