Tuesday’s tea ~ peach tea 🍑

This evening, I’m drinking peach tea with honey.

Let’s talk about… Perfectionism.

I recently realized, how much perfectionism has been holding me back. In some ways I feel like I’m not a perfectionist at all, it’s not something I ever strive to be, or it was something that I used to be a long time ago. But recently I’ve realized my perfectionist tendencies have been sticking with me and holding me back.

We waste so much time when we crave perfection. And yet the most perfect moments are always the unexpected ones that were never fully planned out. You can’t let tiny little flaws or inconveniences bother you, you can’t fixate on that, otherwise you are wasting time!

You don’t have to be the person you strive to be, because for as long as you are living you will always be striving. You will never fully get there. Just work with what you have. You don’t have to be anyone else, most especially the ideal person you push yourself to be. It’s so cheesy but really you just have to be yourself. Not more perfect, but more yourself. As long as your true self comes with respect and kindness then there is no need to hide it.
