I’m so tired of hearing that you shouldn’t let perfection be the enemy of good. I’m of the belief that perfection is not an obstacle to good. One can reach the “good” stage and keep going. You can’t just be complacent with being good. But that’s just me. Well. The old me.
Lately, I’ve reached the point where I just shrug and say…… Well, you know. There’s only so much one can take or try to do. There’s also the moment when you realize that nothing can ever really be perfect. It’s just a matter of what degree of imperfection you are willing to tolerate. What really matters in your world view?
Nothing is perfect. Not even strawberry gelato near the Spanish steps in Italy. I once thought that was pretty near perfect. Now I just want six hours of sleep under a weighted blanket.

I just want sleep! The stress (I think) is causing insomnia, which keeps me from being awake enough during the day to write fiction.
Indeed a very tough year. Here’s hoping to better times. Happy new year
I’ve been sleeping with a weighted blanket of sorts for years…. me under blanket, blanket under cat. Highly recommended.
Hahaha. Love it! Happy new year

Happy New Year!
Perfection is the realm of the purists. There is absolutely nothing pure about me.
The fear is that once we reach “good,” we’ll all decide that it is “good enough” and move on to other things instead of pushing for the ideal. I don’t see a problem with that. I’d prefer a world where we have mostly good things and a few messy things. Because of resource limitations, the alternative is a world where we have a few exceptional things and a lot of horrid things.
I leave pushing for the ideal up to individuals who can pursue their personal dreams to the utmost. That is what an artist does. Perfectionism is poor public policy.
Happy new year!
I think what matters most to me is How I am in this moment. How I do anything is how I do everything. For me there is not much beyond that. We are so attached to ideals and metaphor that we easily forget that all words are only metaphor for what is. Thanks for this most honest post.
Thank you for the note. Indeed, what does this moment mean to us?
