Vlog 2 – Letting Go of Perfectionism

Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone.

I don’t usually post twice in one week, but since I posted my first video blog earlier in the week, I felt like I needed to do another one right away, so that it wouldn’t become an anomaly. Get back on the horse, in other words.  (The horse didn’t really throw me, but it was a scary ride. Thrilling but scary!)

Here’s my next one, still on the subject of FLOW!

Blessings!

    Angie – I think you’ll need to add the word “GLOW” to your FLOW videos because … you are radiant. You’re in the vortex, baby!

    Happy New Year! What an inspiration … love and 2016 blessings, my friend!

    Hi Angie!

    Artist are always looking for “perfection.” I’ve found that it doesn’t exist. About a year ago, I replaced the notion of “perfection” with the concept of “excellence.” One of the laws of the Boy Scouts, repeated at every meeting, is “I will do my best.” That means do as much as one is capable, hopefully in an excellent way.

    I’ve let go of the tyranny of a schedule. That doesn’t mean I don’t have goals, plans or schedules. It simply means that what I do plan is ALWAYS up for revision. As usual, things tend to take longer than planned and I’m OK with that.

    I’m enjoying your Angie-Vlogs and support your courage and efforts. Please know that your thoughts are good to ponder. I look forward to seeing more!

      Thank you, Chuck, and yes, you brilliant man! We can’t let go of our desire for excellence! I couldn’t let go of it if I wanted to! But the “tyranny” (great word) of perfection (and hiding behind it as an excuse) have hampered a lot of my life force. I’m ready to let it all fly. And hopefully I won’t make too big a fool of myself! Bless you, bless you, bless you! Rock on in 2016!

    Look at you!! So much ease and FLOW! Better and easier every time. I too have battled perfectionism and feel I’m on the winning side. I call perfectionism a paralyzingly rat-bastard who seems like it’s helping you be your best self but in reality is lying to you-about you.
    Love watching your evolution beautiful Angie

      Thank you, Janet! As my friend Chuck said, nothing wrong with striving for excellence, but yes, you are right, perfection is paralyzing!
