When I saw this quote I thought it was perfectly aligned to what I was reading in chapter seven of The Artist's Way. In this chapter on connection, the subject of perfectionism was touched upon. Cameron believes that as we struggle to be perfect we actually stop ourselves from moving forward. We keep trying to make things better and better and by doing this we become stuck. I had never thought of the pursuit of perfection in this way but it does make sense. So I am going to be careful to not let my desire for my writings, or my paintings, or my pictures to be so perfect that I stop myself from becoming the creative person I want to be. I am going to enjoy my work and share it with the world, imperfections and all. By doing this, I won't allow myself to become stuck but rather to grow, to learn, to move forward, and most of all to enjoy the act of creating beautiful and sometimes not so beautiful things. Won't you join me in what I consider to be a really wonderful way to look at and live my life? Being perfectly imperfect sounds exactly right to me. What could be better than that?
