Perfection. It's not something I will ever achieve in anything I do, but yet I drive myself crazy at times trying to make my project as close to perfect as I can. My desire to have things just so keep me from doing so many things, like posting here or starting a new drawing.

I have thoughts that I want to share, but can't seem to find the 'perfect' words so I start to write and then stop. I wonder if what I write is good enough, well thought out or worth sharing. I don't want those of you who do read to think I am stupid, crazy, and/or (fill in the blank).

I have always been much harder on myself than needed and am trying to be a little kinder to myself. So here's to letting go of the need to be perfect and to accepting that if I have done the best I can do at that moment that it will be good enough.


  1. I think you just found the PERFECT words to say what so many of us do to ourselves - and why we shouldn't.

    My 11th grade Creative Writing teacher taught me a valuable lesson when it comes to writing.

    Just write.

    That simple.

    Writing begets more writing and soon the words start to flow and with time get better and better and better.

    I may not always leave a comment, but I'm here. :-)

  2. MB, I am glad you are here. :)
