Day 11

LaborStop waiting for perfection – Just do it! I finally had to accept the fact that when it comes to writing, I am a perfectionist. Perfectionism is not always a good thing. Yes, we should strive for perfection. But, in doing so, we must realize that we are humans and humans are not perfect. A stanza of a poem I wrote says, “Waiting for the perfect moment to take the first step.” There is never a perfect moment to take that first step. We just have to do it! Today I am thankful that I have learned (finally) to press past the insecurities and fears (that is not God-given) and take that first, second, third step. My joy lies in the fact that my fears are not holding me back.
