Progress Not Perfection
It’s my word of the year! More like a phrase, but close enough. I am always, always trying to be the best person I can be. It can be exhausting and daunting at times. I get discouraged easily because I’m always trying to do the very best I can. And sometimes I get intimidated because I know I’ve slacked off or haven’t done the work I need to do and then instead of pushing through, I just stop. But stopping is the real problem. Stopping means no progress at all. Even if I only wrote a sentence a day, by the end of the year I would have a fair amount of words, maybe even a short story.
It’s easy for me to remember this year Progress not perfection. Submit my story to agents. If it fails then at least I tried. Go to ballet and yoga. If I’m terrible, at least I’m getting exercise and trying my best. Pay off my credit cards no matter how slowly. And bumble or ok cupid away. I’m not going to meet anyone if I don’t try to meet anyone.
