Less Than Perfect

Many is the day when I can visualize what needs doing, and even the steps to take in order to get something done. The hardest part always seems to be getting started. If I could just get started, I tell myself, I’ll be able to get it done sooner and move on. But the overthinker in me kicks in, ever present to remind me that whatever I do, it won’t be perfect. It requires persistent effort to hear that voice, acknowledge it, and say “Okay, but I know that if I just do it like this, it will be good enough, maybe even better than I thought it would be, and I can move on.”
