The pitfalls of perfectionism
I have been trying to launch this website for over a month. It's honestly been ready but that inner critic, the one in relentless pursuit of perfection has been the dominant voice in my head. The site is done but not perfect and I had to make peace with the fact that it didn't need to be. This isn't a new trend for me. I recently learned that I'm an enneagram type 1 (but we'll get into that another time) and honestly, it was insane to me how closely the description fit me. I like rules. I like things just so. And I am always, always in pursuit of perfection. Editing relentlessly toward that constantly moving finish line.
If you're here and reading this, you probably don't care all that much whether it is perfect. The point of this site is to foster positivity; to provide you with a tool to nourish your body and soul.
I guess the point I'm trying to make is that I'm learning to let go and find beauty and grace in the imperfect. If this is a struggle for you too, I hope that you're also finding your way.
