Do you know how long it took me to find the perfect peaceful yet cottage-y photo for this post?
My main battle with blogging is myself. The most frustrating part of being a perfectionist is that it paralyzes me. If I can't do it perfectly, I get incredibly frustrated and angry at myself. Mind you, I've only been blogging a few months. I would never tell someone else that THEY should be perfect when just starting a brand new hobby. That would be a crazy unrealistic expectation.
So I need to intentionally set the focus of this blog. It's not readership. It's not money. It is to practice being "good enough". Writing a post 2-3 times a week about ANYTHING. It is only for me. To practice doing things I enjoy without holding myself to unrealistic (and unhealthy) expectations.
Perhaps if I can practice being "good enough" on my blog, I might be able to accept being "good enough" in real life. Less comparisons, less pressure, less guilt. More "Hey, that was good enough".
I won't get there if I don't practice.
