perfect paralyzes

It’s been hard for me to blog lately. 

I don’t know… maybe it’s because I’m not where I want to be.  I have this idea of perfect, and I know how perfect is impossible and how crippling it really is to living, but I still can’t seem to shake it.  It paralyzes me.

We live in an imperfect world.  I tell myself that a lot.

Do you ever just look at who you’ve become and think that’s not me, I’ll make a few changes and then I’ll be the person I’m suppose to be?

I see myself as someone that I’m really not, not right now… or not anymore, but hope to be.

I’m not unhappy.  I just want to change. 

It's being caught between who you are and who you want to be. 


  1. I can relate so much to this post. It's hard to Just Be when you're the kind of person who always wants to be growing and improving. For me it's a balance of mindfulness and gratitude for the person you are and putting forward goals and desires for your future. If we were content with ourselves and our lives, things would get pretty boring. Don't be too hard on yourself! Just keep writing and being you :)

  2. sometimes i get so trapped in my head that it's hard to get out. i over-think things and can drive myself crazy. i like when i feel like that sometimes, though, because it makes me do things i might not have done had i not felt that. does that make sense? lol.
    sending lots of love, olivia! you're beautiful. don't change. :)
