Freaky Friday - Perfection

Writing Promt From A Creative Journal Freaky Friday #131. Here is a summary of the prompt:

Write as if you are perfection. Try to let perfection speak what is really on its mind about your writing or art. Explore the idea and listen to what perfection would have you do. If you like create a dialogue with perfection. Ask questions. Why aren’t you living up to perfections standards? What does perfection expect of you? Is perfection being reasonable?

I liked this prompt because I do struggle with perfectionism. Not as in I am perfect, but as in I expect everything to be perfect. Since I became a mom I have gotten a little better at letting things not be perfect. It's hard when you're trying to be a great wife and mother and balance that with all of your other responsibilities. Every time I think I'm getting the balance worked out, something happens to throw it all off again. I'm definitely a work in progress.

I plan to explore this topic and follow this prompt in my paper journal. My hope is that it will help me accept that perfectionism is not something that is going to be a part of my life right now. I think that by accepting this I will be able to enjoy my life much more and be a better wife and mother too.
