Me in 2013:
MAJOR CONFESSION!!! I was busy, busy, busy all day. If you put a webcam in my study, you would find me glued to my laptop from 9 a.m. till 6 p.m. I’d be typing away. I’d be reading. I’d be scribbling some notes on my recycled notepad. I’d be reaching out to a book and flipping through the pages and then typing, typing, typing.
BUT the TRUTH is I was not doing much – I LOOKED busy but I was not producing any work. Once again I was procrastinating – forget finishing a task – I was not even starting as I wanted everything to be PERFECT before I even began! All this perfection, or the need to be perfect, got me all frazzled up. But for what? I wasn’t even getting anywhere.
Me today: January 2015
Occasionally, I will slip up, but I’ve learnt that in the hours I have in a day, there is only is much I can do
I’m proud to tell you that I’ve learnt to let go of perfection. I now go with the flow. Occasionally, I will slip up, but I’ve learnt that in the hours I have in a day, there is only is much I can do. So the clothes have not been put away, and some weeks go by before the floors get mopped. But hey, what’s more important? Those chores or spending time with my loved ones? Those chores or cooking a simple healthy meal? Those chores or my exercise?
I think you can guess my choice…I know the chores will get done…eventually. They will, all in good time.
Now, I am at peace. No more fussing about and stressing myself for nothing.
So ladies, dare I ask again; get frazzled for what?! *raise eyebrow*
