Perfectionism

So what is it that keeps me from at least half the things I want or need to do? You guessed it--Perfectionism. If I can't come up with something I think is interesting or witty, I can't blog. If I don't have time to go back and correct all my grammatical errors or confusing wording, I can't blog. If I don't have more than an hour to put into it, I can't blog.

And this same sense of futility comes over me whenever I am trying to commit to many, many other things.

Well, is it okay for me to blog if I don't have much to say...or pictures to post...or an amusing story...or time to type more than a few words? I hope so, because I'm gonna start trying. Maybe it will carry over into other areas of my life. Might that be a good thing? I'll try to keep you posted. But if I can't, well, I'm sure I'll have plenty of other things to blabber on about!

Wow that sounds like what I said to my hubby not to long ago. I don't always have something interesting to share, or photos or somethings I just can't or don't wish to share because it's well life and I really don't always know how much is to much. Not all days or weeks are good weeks. So I am with ya on that and totally understand.


Big Hugs,
Sheila
p.s. blog whenever and whatever I'll read it...I have missed ya. :)

I am glad to have you back. I checked back occasionally since you did the post on your children's names and was saddened each time. Until today. YIPPEE!!! I am going to sit and read each post and get to know you just a bit more.
