It is about letting go of perfectionism, which is a great enemy when it takes over our careers, lives, and thoughts. Perfectionism will keep you restless your whole life. It is time to fight back. Find the beautiful in the destructed and the fun in the failed, and if you find it hard to do so, at least find the good that will help you to develop. There is a difference between perfection and doing your best, perfection will destroy you while doing your best will help you to develop. It is good to have a goal but sometimes we limit ourselves on that goal when we actually are meant to go beyond that goal. To go beyond the limits one need to let go of perfection. Letting go of perfection one becomes more than perfection, one becomes human and free.
Came across this paragraph below written by Anne Lamott
….Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen. Repent just means to change direction—and NOT to be said by someone who is waggling their forefinger at you. Repentance is a blessing. Pick a new direction, one you wouldn’t mind ending up at, and aim for that. Shoot the moon.
