Perfect is better than done. 👏🏻 No, wait, that doesn’t make sense! That’s right, because truly: done is better than perfect!
As a perfectionist, I find it’s taken me awhile for that to really start sinking in. But the thing is, that all the time we worry about how perfect something is going turn out, we are missing the chance to simply enjoy the process of creation & actually get stuff done or take it further.
What makes my work & my efforts feel the most fullfilling is when someone comes back after me sharing something I’ve created and tells me how that’s inspired, or encouraged, or taught them something. That’s when it’s all really worth it! And the truth is that they don’t care how perfectly crated your sentences are or how well timed your blog post, or how spot on your ‘insert whatever you’re trying to acomplish to a perfectionist standard’. What they care about & what prompts them to get in touch - is that you showed up & shared what’s in your heart & mind, whatever form that took. Wouldn’t you agree?
Beautiful roses from @daylesfordfarm bought for me by my husband @butterwouldntmelt to inspire us in the studio as we sketch out new ideas. So classic and always beautiful to the end, even when the edges start to wither.
Kindness and generosity are one of those wonderful things that positively benefits not only the recipient, but the giver too.
One of my neighbourhood moms just had a big surgery, and like me she’s gluten free. So, I’ve been making snacks to bring over every few days to help out a little.
Every time I make an effort to do something kind, I feel happier and more energized. Whether that’s letting someone go ahead of me in line at the grocery store with fewer items or making healthy snacks for my neighbours family, I also feel good.
And, it also means I get to eat some goodies too, because of course I make extra! ☺️ What’s your favourite way to spread kindness?
PS These yummy treats are peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough bites from @ohsheglows cookbook. #nomnomnom#spreadkindness#loveisfree
One of my favorite Bible Verses! Sometimes we have such a hold on how something should come about that we don’t see that it’s already happening. If you pray for love maybe it won’t come in the form of romance. Maybe it will reveal itself through friendship or family or the sweetest chihuahua in the world. 🐾💖 God hears your prayers and is answering them but maybe not in the ways we expect! 🙏🏻☺️
