Over the past few days I have been reminded why I named my blog "Perfectly Imperfect". My goal was to blog daily, and here it is over a week since my last post. What happened? Well, life happened I suppose. I have a full time job and am working on my MBA at UofL in the evenings. I am also trying to exercise, eat right and try new recipes. Recently, I got swept up in the blog world and desperately wanted to be a part of it. So I started this blog. All was going well until a couple of late-nights and homework assignments pushed me over the edge. I was soo tired and irritable, I didn't feel like doing anything at all! Something had to give...
I realized that I was putting too much pressure on the blog. After all, I wanted it to be PERFECT, right? Turns out, blogging is not as easy as it looks. Snapping pictures and writing about my life is the least of it. Lets just say I am not a big fan of website design right now...mostly because I have no clue what I am doing. I've given a lot of thought to whether I should keep blogging or put it on hold. I decided it is something I want to do and something I enjoy. So I'm not perfect...so what?? I have to start somewhere. I am going to continue blogging, but try not to stress myself out about it. As I go along, I am sure it will get easier and my blogging skillz will improve.
At this point, I haven't divulged too much of my history, but I am one of those people who tends to see everything as "all or nothing". If something isn't exactly right, I want to start over or quit. It has taken years for me to learn be okay with mistakes and slip-ups, especially where food is involved. I still remember the first time I ate a piece of cake and still went to the gym (prior to that, if I ate one "bad" thing, the whole day was ruined). I occasionally find myself searching for that level of perfection that I will never be able to attain, but now I am able to reason with myself. It feels good to find that middle ground, I believe that is where happiness is.
So this is me...perfectly imperfect :)
