Two contradicting quotes abt perfection

"Artists who seek
perfection in
everything are
those who do not
attain it in anything" gustave flaubert

"fix ur eyes on
perfection and u
make almost
everything speed
towards it" william ellery

As we walk through life we get to discover and understand ourselves.
The kind of person we are and atimes the reason why we do the things we do.

As we jorney thru life we go through a learning process,
learning about ourself, about others, about our environment and the universe at large.

During this jorney, i ve come to know myself more and more,
and understand why i do the things i do and lots more.

I ve come to discover that am very emotional and secretive etc.
Also i ve tendencies towards being a perfectionist.


Perfectionist?

Meet me: I cant take any action until am certain
its the perfect thing to do.

Before i say a word i go over it a million times in my head
puting it in perfect order before i say it out.

While writing i go over anything i ve written
a million times editing and polishing it,
most times it ends up losing its meaning.
And i ve to start all over again.

I can think of so many things i ve not said
just cos i was looking for d perfect way to say wats on my mind and couldn't find any.

I always set a high standard 4 my self, most times for others also and
it could be a problem when i or they fall short of it.

so it got me wondering,
do things ve to be perfect before we indulge in it?

are there times when good should be enough ?

do we waste our lives waiting for the perfect opportunities, perfect job, man, wife, book, writing, etc?

is there anything perfect in this world, or is perfect simply what you make of of it.

Is there hope 4 those who believe that something must be perfect b4 they take a leap?

I cant stop wondering
just hope the "i want it perfect" side of me wont start editing this till it loses its original meaning

oh she's trying so hard not to..

U could also share one or two things u ve discovered/learnt about ur self.

Nice week
