I’m amazed that its been exactly 368 days since I last posted here on my blog! It has certainly not been for lack of inspiration. Life has needed these energies applied to other situations. But now I am back!!!! In a fashion. All because of a request from my friends at Brave Girls Club.
I’d love for you to see my newest post here: http://bravegirlsclub.com/archives/23822
It’s all about PERFECTIONISM and the futile striving to attain it. Or more specifically, striving to attain the conventional definition of perfectionism. How it’s a soul-killer and a relationship-blocker. Yet now I look at the word PERFECT completely differently. To me it’s all about SOUL JOY, that perfect meeting of good feelings and good works and good living.
This new me is not even beating herself up for not having blogged for such a long time. I’ve never been a great follower of rules anyhow. Like the rule “you must blog regularly” in order to………………. To what? Those are other people’s rules. And how often do we jump on those bandwagons? Because its usually easier to follow a rule than to dig deeper and create your own rule for your own life, your own soul’s purpose. If that’s “imperfection” then I proudly claim it. Because that’s PERFECT.
How has the drive for perfectionism affected your life? Do you feel like you’re still on an endless treadmill? If you’ve gotten off that treadmill, with what have you replaced that former drive, if anything? I’d really love to hear about it.
