This post is part of an ongoing challenge to share a little joy I have found each day of this year, and perhaps for the rest of my life. I hope you enjoy it!
“The best is the enemy of the good”
January 13th, 2020
For many of us, finding yet another thing in life we have difficulty mastering can be frustrating, sometimes even devastating to the ego. That being said, over the past few years I have tried to be lenient with myself, understanding that I simply cannot be great at everything, and that even the things I can be great at will take much time and effort to master.
As I have been attempting to write online professionally, I have found myself struggling with the many rules and regulations we as Humans have deemed important in the written language. I have to admit I have a lot of difficulty conforming to a set of guidelines with my writing, preferring to simply let it flow, whether or not I put a comma in a perfect spot really isn’t of high importance to me when compared to the overall message I am trying to convey.
The struggle of trying to learn to write differently is quite pleasant, even if in the moment I want to rip my hair out. Sometimes it really is the journey, not the destination that can be joyful when looked at in hindsight.
I hope to still have all my hair by years end. Cross your fingers for me!
