This week I’ve learned some valuable lessons but one that has stood out the most has been the idea of letting go of Perfection and getting things done. I find myself not sharing outfit pictures, posting blogs or sharing videos because they are not “perfect”.
All of this content is sitting my my computer and can be the photo or the blog posts that encourages someone but I wouldn’t post it because it was not perfect. I almost didn’t post these pictures on this blog, because I felt the pictures weren’t perfect. I kept have that negative self-talk saying, “the pictures are not good enough, is this outfit really worthy of posting? Will anyone really read this blog post?
One of my goals this week was to transform negative self-talk in to empowering speech, so I took another look at the pictures and even though I felt like they weren’t perfect, I added them anyway. Because it’s better to have this blog post updated and out there then to have another set of pictures hiding on my computer.
The concept of having things “Done” and not “Perfect” is difficult for me because in my mind I don’t want to put out crappy content for you guys. However, I would rather get this done, connect with the community through your comments and feedback and know that I have another blog post under my belt.
We can all get caught up in the “it must be perfect before I put it out there” game but nothing is perfect and you’ll spend forever trying to get it there. Then you’ll be kicking yourself when someone with the same or similar idea put theirs out for all to see.
My pose my not be perfect and I don’t like the fact that you can see the cars in the background, but I liked my look and I wanted to share it so instead of waiting for the perfect lighting, and the perfect location, I found a spot that allowed me to show a little peace of me and my style.
What moment have you experienced and new that you had to let go of perfect and get it out there?
