No Such Thing as Perfect
It's during the holidays that many of us get to express our creative sides. While some of us relish in the actual art of creating, others savor the end result. For the perfectionists in the world, it can be a time of high pressure and stress. Wondering if the decorations, appetizers, holiday cards or outfits are "perfect" can drive many into a constant state of worry. The words "good enough" are like nails on the chalkboard to these folks. To let go of the need to be perfect, try focusing on what is REALLY important. A great way to do this is to ask ourselves why we are doing something? If we can turn our energies towards making deep and meaningful connections with the people we love, then how well you decorate or cook a meal will matter very little.
