Motivation, Perfection, and Missed Opportunities | My Rambling Thoughts

Hello everyone!

I’m trying really hard to get motivated this week. Some weeks I feel like I can go out and conquer the world and, quite honestly, others I feel like it would take a miracle to get me off the couch. It’s not like I can’t do anything. I just feel like if I start working on something in this mood, it won’t turn out as well as I want it to.

I’m a perfectionist, so if I don’t feel like I can give something my all, I just don’t do it. I think that’s why I’m so bad at keeping up with things like blogging or YouTube. If I don’t wake up feeling 100% productive, I just don’t do anything. Now that I think about it, I’m starting to think it’s a bad thing.

Maybe in a way it has a lot more to do with confidence than anything. I’ve always been terrified of putting myself out there. Mostly because I’m afraid of what other people are going to think of me.

Not that there’s anything wrong with giving your best 100% of the time. The problem comes when you’re so obsessed with getting something perfect that you end up not doing it at all. It’s like if you’re supposed to submit a painting to an art show or something (I’m not really sure if that’s a thing, but bear with me) and you’re so obsessed with making sure it’s perfect before you submit it that you end up not submitting it at all. Because the truth is that nothing will ever be 100% perfect, and if you keep waiting for perfection you’re going to end up missing out on a lot of great opportunities.

I have to keep trying to remind myself of that.

Anyway, I’m not sure that any of that made any sense, but it made me feel a lot more productive.

Until next time,

Abbye
