I have given up the goal of trying to have things perfect, and an interesting thing has happened. I now just work hard and find that in the end, things just seem like they were perfect. Take for example, this last Christmas Day. I worked hard but gave up the idea that it had to be perfect; but when the day was over, it felt like it had been perfect. Same thing happened with my daughter's wedding. I now get it that nothing will ever be perfect in this world and giving up on that quest allows for it to seem perfect in its imperfection. The goal that is achievable is just being creative, working hard, and enjoying the process. Doing all of that makes it seem perfect even if it isn't. Goodbye perfectionism, hello satisfaction.
