The Paralysis of Perfectionism

I am a perfectionist. This is not exactly a news flash to my immediate family or probably even close friends. Now, a modicum of perfectionism (if there is such a thing) is not necessarily a bad thing. But when "anything worth doing, is worth doing well" becomes "if it can't be done perfectly, there's no sense in doing it at all," then life can be quite difficult. Case in point: I haven't posted anything to this blog in almost seven weeks. The reason, actually reasons? I can't get my pictures in the post the way I want them, I can't think of a good title for the post, I don't have any good pictures to post, I don't have anything "witty" to say, etc., etc. I think you get the idea. So I've decided to do something I don't normally do; I'm going to make a couple of New Year's resolutions, even though we're already well into the new year. First, I'm going to start posting on a regular basis, even if my posts aren't "perfect." Second, I'll be working on taming the perfection monster in other areas of my life, as well. Remember, you heard it here first. LOL
