Marathon Monday

BostonMagCover_0

I wish I was in Boston today (although I’m sure my mother is glad I’m not).  As a former resident of Boston and enthusiastic Marathon Monday reveler, it’s a pull I feel each and every Patriot’s Day.  It has always been an amazing tradition to be a part of, something uniquely Boston and full of fun.  I’m so glad to see a city I love bring back their day with such a vengeance and I wish I could be there to lend more of my support.  Triumph over tragedy. We will run.

The Perfection Freeze

perfect-enemy-of-good

Oh hello again.  Yes, I dropped off the face of the earth there for a little while.  I was struggling a little bit with my blog vision and I fell into a common (to me) trap.  I like to call it the Perfection Freeze. I get scared or frustrated that things are not exactly as I want them to be. I convince myself that if things aren’t going to be exactly as I envision them, then they aren’t worth doing at all. I let the perfect become the enemy of the good, or the mediocre, or the anything really.

I know it’s ridiculous, that things rarely turn out exactly as we expected and most of the time that is a really great thing. I know the journey is generally more important than the destination. I know that nothing is ever really perfect. Basically I know I’m crazy and it’s something I am actively working on.

So I will continue to plug away at this.  I will not feel inadequate if I don’t have beautiful pictures, if I generally forget to take pictures, if I don’t have a new recipe every week, if I don’t post every Tuesday. It’s still worth trying and exploring if I find it interesting and valuable. No more letting the perfect paralyze me.
