A to Z Challenge
I had a perplexing time determining an idea for letter ‘I’ although the subsequent terms came to mind; imperfections, inadequate, insufficient. Interesting, yes?What made this letter more difficult than all the rest and what I knew would eventually catch up with me in this challenge is my desire to be perfect. Most times, or a lot of times, or some of the time I can pacify, soothe and appease this robust yearning to be flawless and faultless. I really thought I would find the most awesome word for letter “I” and the ensuing words would spill onto the paper.
URGH, but no, not this time as my impeccable and undulating desire to please was hindering me to settle for anything less than perfection- NOPE, imperfect was not a viable option.You see, I have hundreds, or thousands of ideas in my head for most occassions; as we all do but long ago, decided that’s exactly where they are the safest. If they remain tucked inside my cranium no one can critique me, ridicule me or cast me aside because they don’t favor my idea, therefore my thoughts and my impressions and yes, my ideas stay neatly tucked away inside this skull.
So if you have any ideas to curb perfectionism, I’m all approachable, I think!
I don't know.... maybe I am~
