The pressures of perfection.

pin it button The pressures of perfection.

Sometimes it’s the pressure of needing it to be perfect that stops us from making something new. I used to let it stop me all the time. ( Will it go well? Will I love it? Will it have been worth the time and the energy? Did I just waste all these ingredients? Did I just do something wrong? And now how do I fix that? Oh, wow. I really don’t know what I’m doing…) I don’t let that feeling stop me anymore, but I still feel all the same feelings I used to. And it’s not that I ignore them, I just keep myself moving while I’m feeling them. And as a consequence I get to make some delicious things and then I get to eat them. So, what I’m saying is that the pay off is good. icon wink The pressures of perfection.

And the truth is that I often “do something wrong”. I often make mistakes and miss ingredients and spill things and have to try to fix them as I go. But more often than not, while it’s not usually “perfect”, it is totally delicious. So, even if you feel like “the war in somewhere will go on forever” if what you’re making isn’t “the most fantastic”, know that you’re not alone in feeling that way. In fact, it’s all a part of the process. And from my experience, the odds are in your favor. So, give it a go.

Good luck!

About the Author ()

I embark on on-camera, healthy food adventures while I make other people's recipes (Sometimes vegan. Sometimes raw. Mostly paleo. Always gluten, grain, dairy, refined sugar, soy, and corn free) for the very first time on camera. I also do a daily gratiTUDE series in which I write about something I am grateful for everyday because the secret to happiness is realizing that the good stuff is already all around us. Let's have a good time, shall we?
