Someone Said Saturday…


“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing,
is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.”

  1. But who or what am I ? When I think I have an estimation after deep introspection I see not only that I am not the same person as I passed through decades or merely years or even yesterday. Already but not yet ? I did give up on perfection but I do the very best I can and then leave it at that. Consolation in knowing I did my best. Sometimes things turn out near perfect though. I call it craftsmanship.

  2. I gave up on being perfect back in my thirties… it was wearing me out. Becoming myself was hard on a few people who wanted me to keep being someone that I was not…. 🙂

    1. I know exactly what you mean. There are those who want you to be who and what they think you should be. I think that is too much trouble so I will just be me.
