It’s been a while since I posted something. But nobody is reading this blog yet, so I feel like it doesn’t really matter. But then again, it matters to me. I just don’t want to start something and quit again after a short while like I did with my studies. So, here I go and before I start over again, I have to mention something. The main reason why it took me so long to write a new post is because I really am a perfectionist. When I feel like something isn’t perfectly perfect I think I can’t publish it. It’s not that I run out of ideas or creativity, actually I have so much in mind that I want to do or write about that it kind of paralyzes me sometimes. But there are so many unbelievably beautiful and gorgeous blogs, pictures and people out there in the Internet that it frightens me. However, here is what I came up with after a while of thinking: I have to allow myself to be imperfect. It’s ok to not be perfect in everything. You can’t be! And it’s completely ok!
Funnily, while I’m writing this post and think about whether being “just” ok and not perfect is enough for me, I remember something my boyfriend told me a while ago regarding exactly this topic. He said that our motto should be “The beauty of ok” because it’s way too exhausting to wait for everything to become perfect and as you know, “Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans” (John Lennon).
So, I try to be satisfied with what I have and what I can do and stop telling myself I could make it better somehow if only… whatever. Let’s see what I make out of this new knowledge!
Thanks for this lovely post, and doe anyone really want to be perfect. isn’t the beauty of imperfection what makes us all unique
