Good enough?

Monday, July 22, 2013

Sitting here frozen because I'm overwhelmed with all I need to do...bills need to be paid, kitchen is a disaster from making breakfast and lunch...and I could go on and on.

I have this perfectionist problem: Either I do something 100% perfect or I panic and get stuck and sit motionless, almost as if I'm scared to move.

I was just looking for some images to post here to boost my spirits and it's pretty sad how many I found that stress how "good enough is NEVER good enough". To someone like me, that's enough to stop me in my tracks. This perfectionism applies to every aspect of my life, and it's time to get a grip.

So, right here, right now, I'm calling shenanigans on the "good enough is NEVER good enough" mind-set and declaring that GOOD ENOUGH is very much indeed GOOD ENOUGH.

As soon as I post this I will set a timer for 15 minutes and work in the kitchen until the mess is gone and I have dinner prepped. 15 minutes working and 10 minutes of break time.

And that IS and will be GOOD ENOUGH.

    I'm sorry that stress has caused you to freeze up, but glad to hear you're going to shake all that! Good luck! I sometimes need to do the same thing (set the timer to break things into manageable, 15 minute chunks of time). Makes things SO MUCH easier! emoticon emoticon
