noun \ˌim-pər-ˈfek-shən\

: the quality or state of being imperfect; also : fault, blemish



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.

Here’s a link to some brainy quotes about imperfection:

Have an awesome day despite or because of all its imperfections! 🙂
