In a discussion on Patty Digh’s 137 Days Project I was talking about accepting imperfection. One of the other folks noted that she isn’t sure there is any such thing as imperfection.
And damn! A whole new world opened up for me!
Imperfection, just like perfection, is a judgement.
If there is no perfection there can be no opposite, no imperfection.
Both are just steps along a continuum.
How cool is that?!
And THAT is why it is good to participate in community. Because little side discussions can just wake you right up!
You will remember that yesterdayI started cleaning and organizing my bead/sewing room. And I got half way there. (The continuum – *everything* is a continuum….that is just so cool!) And today I kept at it: I dove into the closet and when I finished that I took on the
bookcase and shelves and shelves of photos albums.
And my room has never been so organized!
I can even close the closet door. How’s that for well done?! (I have a picture but I’m having technical difficulties at the end of this post so you’ll just have to imagine it).
Yes, there are still puddle of stuff.
Next to the sewing machine is a pile of “to be repaired” items that have been waiting for years to be repaired. Now that my room is ordered, I can see them and they are next up. And there’s the question of what to do with all my jewelry – how to present the different
pieces so they can find their forever homes.
That’s for later. After I get my website redone. Oh yes, wait for it – same content, totally different look. It seems to be that part of my path right now. Get into everything and turn it inside out. Feels GREAT!
I may even scratch out time to get in the photo drawer that has never been organized, into my parents’ pictures that aren’t organized and finally even into my digital photos that have about 10 years worth of pictures to process and organize. Imagine getting through some of that and then starting the New Year with that accomplishment in hand. I can get on that train!
What are you doing that’s making you feel all jazzed and passionate and in the middle of YOUR Hell YES!!! life?
