So, this week I challenged myself to write a blog post every day, and today I've got nothin'. I've been trying to figure out what to write about all day, and I've just been coming up empty-handed. I had planned to share this new awesome mac and cheese recipe I found, but it was a flop. Not all Pinterest finds can be a win right? ;) Than I planned to share my trip to Ikea today, but that fell through as well.
I didn't want to let myself down on this challenge, though. It is a pretty small challenge after all, and after struggling with my goals that I set for myself this year, I just wanted something small that I could accomplish.
A lot of times, I put off this blog because I keep waiting until I can have the perfect blog post or share the perfect session. I want everything to be just so before I share it, but the fact is that a lot of times I end up not sharing at all, and it's only putting me that much farther behind on reaching my dreams and my goals.
I'm trying to let go of the perfection. It has it's place, but it can also be very binding. I'm trying to learn to let my perfectionistic tendencies contribute in a helpful way to my goals and my craft, but not hold me back and paralyze me.
So here is this perfectly imperfect blog post. There's no pretty pictures, and it's not well written, but I made it to day two of this goal. and I'm looking forward to seeing what kinds of ideas I can come up with for the rest of the week. I have a feeling it might involve blueberries, green smoothies, and White collar. Stay tuned ;)
