Seems like I’m kind of slacking…

…slacking in several areas of my life…primarily with my writing.  Weird how I was able to write every day when I was working six days a week for the past few months of the year, now I’m back to a “normal” schedule and have missed several days!  What’s up with that?

I’ll give myself a pass on the day I ended up working from 5:30 in the morning until 8:30 at night…although I could have posted from my phone. They’ve updated it a little and it’s a lot easier to write and post pictures, so that’s pretty cool.  I just have to remember to adjust my camera on the phone according to the lighting…guess what I really need to do is take more pictures with it. 

 And I was pretty sick for a few days, so okay, maybe that’s an excuse…maybe…

Sometimes I think I aim for perfection and then am disappointed in myself when I don’t maintain it…when really, who among us can be perfect for very long?  Why isn’t good enough good enough?  Does anyone else have those perfectionist tendencies?  How in the world do you deal with it?

  1. I’ve never really been a perfectionist but I tend to blow things out of proportion. One strategy I’ve come across is to stop and think about what will actually happen if you don’t do this or that. It’s like finishing the thought and realizing that what could happen (or not happen) isn’t always that bad

    • That’s a good idea, Nikkianne…I’m usually pretty good about not getting upset about most things (now, in the past I would get upset at the drop of a hat…I think, with age comes a little more sense of being able to just accept things and move on…most of the time…). I’ve often calmed myself down by telling myself, “this too shall pass”…

  2. I feel like I have too many things that I’d like to cram into a day, so I can identify with your feelings. I haven’t figured out the answer yet. Let me know if you get a revelation!
