What is perfection?
Most of us strive for it but never fully attain it because we’re human and because the idea of perfection is so intangible.
Is it being better than or having more than someone else or does perfection lie in one’s behavior, actions and conscience?
It seems to me as if society measures perfection by accomplishment but I believe a truer measurement lies in our attitudes and conduct, including being honest about ourselves.
I struggle with my self confidence a lot because I tend to succumb to society’s version of what “perfect” is. I see myself as falling short if I don’t perform as well as others or have as much.
When I’m working on my blog, I try my hardest to stay grounded until I go on the Internet and suddenly see hundreds of great looking informative blogs that seem better than mine. Its intimidating and makes me feel inferior when I compare my work to others.
Fortunately, I have a wonderful husband who sees perfection in ways I sometimes can’t.
When I recently told him about my insecurities, he said he thought my quirkiness and personal foibles made for interesting stories and that he valued originality.
He ventured that having a successful blog is about more than having a professionally made logo, being an authority on something or landing an early placement in the search results. He said personal stories can’t be stolen or duplicated.
He also likes my stick figure drawings.
The pep talk brought me back to my senses.
I understand hard work is necessary to build a successful blog or no one will see it but I’m going to concentrate on seeing myself and my blog as perfect the way they are.
Perfection is ultimately subjective and if we see it as being human, we’re already there.
