Being perfectionistic is my biggest weakness and superpower at the same time. I like my life as I like myself, neat and preppy. Therefore when I know it wouldn’t turn out as I imagined it, I’m most likely not in the mood to even begin.
Especially in terms of blogging I realized how perfectionistic I am and how often it stopped me.
Blogging. You can do it!
It took me a while to come up with IEB. I mean not just the name, rather the whole concept behind it. (And let me be honest, I’m still not pleased with IEB and on my way of figuring some things out!) I launched IEB nearly three month ago and I have so much fun creating and writing. Plus, I learned a lot about myself. For example: It’s not always important or even possible to have THE most perfect images, with white beaches or Notting Hill in the background, being dressed in Gucci or Chanel, looking like a VS model, having a bomb design, or write something so beautiful everybody will read and enjoy. It’s ok to be imperfect.
Don’t be scared
How often have the following thoughts got through your mind?
- Will they enjoy it?
- Is it pretty enough to show?
- Will they think it’s not good enough?
As a perfectionist let me tell you: Being to perfectionistic can stop you from creating great content and discovering new opportunities. For example as a result of my perfectionism I don’t post as regular as I wish I would, because I love blogging but I often believe my words or images aren’t good enough. But the longer I blog, the more I accept myself and get confident with what I do and how I do it.
And for the future I have big and beautiful plans for IEB and I won’t let my perfectionism stop me from reaching them. So be exited..
