Confession…..I am a perfectionist. Surprise, surprise! About 95% of you are nodding your heads in agreement right now and having a nice chuckle to yourself. I know… it’s really not earth shattering news to you. But…I have recently had a breakthrough.
Have you noticed that I have not been writing much lately? I have not even finished writing about my summer trip and I did another trip recently that I would like to start writing up. My problem? I lost my joy to write. I was too wrapped up in perfectionism. I was too worried about all my English major friends having heart attacks over my grammar, punctuation, etc. It took me hours to write a blog post. Then I would have several people edit it. I then would rewrite the edits and it would take me weeks to do one post.
This has to stop! I love writing and sharing my adventures. So, from this day forward, I am done with the perfect post. If you can’t handle the same word starting a sentence for 3 sentences in a row, lots of run on sentences, commas, bad grammar (I like to use the word funner), then this is your disclaimer to not read my stuff anymore. I want to write and to share. I want to be free to share what is flowing from my brain to my fingers. If is it not perfect, then it will be just like me. Because I am far from perfect and these adventures are not perfect. So….from here on out, I’m going to write from the heart and not from the head. I hope you enjoy and continue to come along on these amazing adventures with me!
