Hello There.....hope you are all Fine and Dandy!
Now the title of this post is a positive one!
All summed up perfectly in how I feel about my crocheted cushion! (Well you all know how bonkers I am!) I have spent most of my life striving for perfection, being the perfect daughter, student, employee, employer, wife, mother, friend....Phew, NOONE can sustain that amount of perfection!
It took me quite a few years, but finally the penny dropped, I'm not perfect, I cannot be perfect....and you know something....ALL IS OK, NOT BEING PERFECT, IS PERFECTLY OK!
I'm not sure where the need for perfection came from.
Now I'm not totally against perfection. Perfectionism is a great quality in Olympic athletes and we all want the surgeon, who has our life in their hands, to be perfect. But maintaining a perfect life is an in my opinion, an impossibility!
My Dad always said to me "Just try your best" they never expected great things from me, my parents were too busy working hard, putting a roof over our heads, to put too much pressure on us anyway!
So I always 'try my best' never get anything perfect, but it's fine. My cushion is lovely but not perfect, I'm perfectly fine with this. It may have taken me a long, long time to reach this conclusion but I got there in the end!
Here's the back.....
And here it is on my settee (yes this is MY settee, it's ok my family know this...it's just the cat that keeps forgetting!)
Another thought! I always try my best, but sometimes that is hard too, what would happen if I only put 90% into something, or perhaps even 80%? We all have 80% days don't we?
My world won't collapse will it, if somedays I only put in 80%!!!!! I will give it a go and let you know!
Well while my life isn't perfect, I do have absolutely perfect moments....
Crocheting in the evening sun, listening to the birds, being glad I've found this lovely Bloggy world, that shares wonderful things! I love Perfect Moments.
It might not be perfect, but it's a great back support!
Thank you once again for stopping by and having a chat with me. I will ALWAYS think of this little blog of mine as a chat over the garden fence with a few friends. I looked at the blog stats the other day, it freaked my out a bit to be honest, lots of people stop by each day. At first I got a bit of 'blog fright' like stage fright, obviously without the stage!
However, I realised most of the people who stop by probably work in one of those spam call centres, they don't even read what I right but just use my blog address to send out spam comments!!! ( I find some of these comments hilarious, but they won't ever get on my blog as I delete them!)
So I shall just be glad I've got just a few Bloggy friends to chat with, you know over the garden fence, sharing a cuppa....or something a little stronger, depending on the time of day!
Wishing you many Perfect Moments.....have a lovely weekend!
Bye for now, Ada Bea- who has an amazing crochet cushion that supports her back PERFECTLY! :) xxx
