Perfectionist Paralysis

 Omg I haven’t written on this blog in a little over six months.  But I am happy to say that I am back. So much has happened (within the six months) that I’ve been gone, but to tell you the truth, I had to find my inspiration for this and my overall why. Another truthful moment, but I also had come to a point where I actually liked my blog and to be honest I didn’t. I didn’t like the layout and how it looked via mobile. To me it wasn’t easy and when it comes to sharing my life online, I wanted it to be less complicated as possible. I wanted my site to be easy and user friendly, I hated the way my header looked, it wasn’t authentically me, it didn’t resonate with me. I basically copied a format that I saw someone else do, but what works for the goose doesn’t always work for the gander - or however the saying goes. 

So in true Virgo fashion, I didn’t post anything to my site because it wasn’t perfect. It wasn’t me. Over the past six months I discovered that I have something called  “Perfectionist Paralysis” meaning that if it isn’t perfect, it won’t get done. I realized that the fear of presenting something that just wasn’t true to myself, had kept me from actually performing. 

So over the last few days, I researched, made thousands of keystrokes online, and purchased a few different templates from SKYANDSTARS.CO on Etsy.com before I actually found something close to what I was looking for. Also to be honest, this template isn’t perfect either but it’s close, and I don’t have another six months to waste. Not to mention Etsy suspended my account *rolls eyes*  so I had checkout using the guest feature.

On a more positive note, I like how my site looks now. Although it isn’t as perfect as I would like it to be, it’s better than what it was and it’s done. And maybe I’ll tweak some things in the future, but for now, I just wanted this project to be done because I felt stuck for six months. I even missed my one year blog-iversary So from here I hope you enjoy this content that I’m rolling out. I’m excited again for my blog and I hope that you will be too. 

If there’s something that I learned from this experience, it is that done is better than perfect, unless you’re a Virgo, than it may take 6 months or it will never get done lol.

 In all honesty, don’t get stuck on something for too long, figure out what works for you so that you can live your best authentic life.
