I had it wrong. For so many years, I thought that I had to work hard to be perfect and then everything would fall into place. Ha! So many things are great about getting older. Perfectionism gets replaced with other more joyful things such as: honesty, passion, laughter. Giving up on being perfect is freeing! I suppose it is like an art journey. You start out wanting to paint the perfect realistic painting. Then as you gain strength with your art, it becomes less ‘perfect’ and much more fun and expressive. Yes! So I hope for you too, in life and and art, that the journey becomes more and more fun and expressive. Perfect is not going to happen, and that is more than okay!
