Ugh, “imperfection” has such negative connotations. So I did not add a post yesterday, which made my posting record imperfect. I was so busy with work that I couldn’t or wouldn’t spare a moment to write something myself or locate something of interest to re-post. Since I found out about Postaday2011, I have posted once a day and was pleased with my progress thus far. It’s too bad that I felt a bit out of sorts when I missed a day. I know in the grand scheme of things that missing one post is not a big deal at all. Being out of sorts about missing one post is a small, but relevant example that points to my perfectionist tendencies. And it wasn’t just about missing a post, it was also that I didn’t make time for a moment of joy, curiosity, or fun — one of the main points of maintaining this blog in the first place. That said, I am being positive overall. I have been making lots of strides regarding expectations of perfection, so I am not too worried about little stuff like yesterday anymore, but of course there’s still progress to be made on the bigger stuff, especially the bigger “life” stuff.
