I started a website today. :) This is a small sentence that is a BIG deal to me. I spent way too many hours searching and researching and finding the exact right place to do this and ended up with a short list of 7 companies that could make this a reality for me. That was way too many since all 7 seemed almost exactly the same. I fretted a bit, watched more Youtube videos, and finally got tough with myself. I poured a cup of coffee and promised myself I would NOT get up until I made a decision, any decision, I let myself off the hook for having to make the right decision. As I was detailing the websites,,,,again....a tutorial from Weebly caught my eye. The title read:
This resonated with me because it is the same way I feel about healthy lifestyle choices. What if healthy was NOT a wagon you were on or off of? What if you could design and redesign what wellness means to you? What if every new day was just another day to try an experiment and see how it fit you? What if you knew your first attempt would be "not that good", but you also knew that doing it anyway was the next step to getting you where you wanted to be with your well-being?
Weebly made me feel free. I was free to try, I was free to create, I was free to make a site that was "not that good" but that in the end still existed where before it did not. It took the pressure off of the result and gave me space to breath through the process.
I invite you through this site to take a look at your own wellness and ask yourself:
What do I WANT to create?
How am I letting perfection hold me back from making the changes I WANT to make.
What if I try the first time and it's "not that good?"
What am I making that mean about me?
I'll keep making those imperfect tweaks to my own life (and this site!) and hope that you will keep making those imperfect tweaks to your own choices, thoughts, and habits until you feel the peace that comes with heading in the right direction, which is only defined as the direction you have chosen and not your default.
