imperfectly yours~

It's easy to work with people who are teachable, who wanna get things as right as possible, 

and there's a vast difference between striving for excellence, or personal bests, and being a perfectionist ~which just wears everybody out.

Being a perfectionist is more about fear and avoiding criticism than it is really a desire to get things right.

Being the best we can is about personal choices; it's not about anyone else at all.

I saw something signed, "imperfectly yours" recently and I liked it. Something freeing about it.

So how does this apply to my watercolour painting, my writing, my irregularity of posting on this blog....?

How does it apply in your life?
