Are You a Perfectionist?
Does perfectionism ever get in your way? I didn't used to think I was a perfectionist. I'm not perfect, how could I be a perfectionist? I cut corners all the time. I don't make my bed. I can be a slob. And I generally find myself to be pretty laid back. But I've realized that my brand of perfectionism is procrastination. I put it off so that if it doesn't turn out so great I can say, well it's not my best work, I rushed it at the last minute. Or, I just don't do something because I don't have time to make it perfect.
I have been trying to pick up my camera more to take better quality photos of Theo and Vincent. And these photos sit on my camera forever because I don't have an organized system for putting them on my computer. And I want to edit them to be beautiful. But then they never get shared. So, today, here are photos I took that I am digging. They could be made more beautiful with some photo editing, but since I'm not finding the time for that right now (or not making it my priority while I still have a very young baby), I'd rather share them here imperfectly than not share them at all.
Better to get these out here straight off the camera than not at all, don't ya think?
