Devoid of Inspiration

So what do I do?

Why, a search in YouTube. Of course.

This video brought tears to my eyes, and a lot of hope back into my heart on this dampish, greyish, depressed sort of day.

It also made me laugh at myself. I actually felt like "retyping" all of the quotes into a new powerpoint presentation, just because I found the slides blurry. (I would have, of course, given the creator of the original slideshow, credit for pulling the quotes together in the first place.)

I laugh, because I declared on the post before this one, that I have made real progress on my perfectionism. Let me qualify that. Sometimes, I am less of a perfectionist, and let things just "be" as they are. It is the right thing to do.

In any case, I feel better. Blurry and all.


  1. blurry and all, i like that :)
    beautiful video!!

  2. As someone else with perfectionist tendencies, I had to laugh, with a certain amount of empathy, at your reaction. But they great thing is that you're laughing too. As soon as I've checked all the spaces and spelling, I'll post this comment. It might take a while. LOL

  3. I have had to let go of a lot of my perfectionism - although it still remains in someplaces of my life. Only the places that don't cause me pain. I think :) LOL

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thanks, everyone. I keep learning little lessons about perfectionism and control that are leading me away from it. Letting go of control leaves a whole lot more time for...writing. Deborah - I love Blogger because I can "publish" a post and still keep tweaking it as I see things I want to change. At least that is what I do for now...maybe I will stop doing it eventually. Probably not!
