How to start your blog and push past perfectionism…aka the things I’m telling myself to get this blog going!
I was worried that the branding wouldn’t be perfect, the blog layout wouldn’t be right or I wouldn’t have the right words. OR that I would change my mind, lose interest or just straight up fail!
But we all know that the problem is, perfection isn’t attainable.
And… we’ll never know until we try!
I relate to Donald Miller‘s quote…
“I don’t trust people to accept who I am in process. I’m the kind of person who wants to present my most honest, authentic self to the world — so I hide backstage and rehearse honest and authentic lines until the curtain opens.”
So I have a choice to make. I can stay still and safe, all the while wishing I had created this blog and pursued a dream…
Or I could JUST START. It’s as simple as that.
Fearful living is not living at all.
I believe that God puts dreams in our hearts for a reason. Sometimes they seem impossible, sometimes they’re seemingly small, sometimes they morph into a new dream and transform you in the process.
If perfectionism is holding you back, I challenge you to start anyway. The best way to move past perfectionism is to take action. Let’s do this together!
