Move From Law To Grace




To be completely honest, there was a time when I would beat myself up if I couldn't get my posts out on time to the best of my ability. I would second guess elements of my post over and over until eventually, a lot of my work wound up in the bin and never got posted.

In reality, it's actually more important to post something that may have some nuggets of special rock and serve you our awesome readers, with consistent articles, rather than getting hung up on making the post perfect.

By beating myself up for not posting the perfect post, I lock myself in a self-made legalistic cage that if I am not careful, has the power to make me feel so inadequate about my writing that I delete this blog and give it all up just like that. 

This self-made legalistic cage is honestly something I have struggled with for a long time. I am one of those people who wants to give both quality and quantity and I get very cross with myself if I can't reach this mark, especially with my writing.
At least, I used to.

I still believe that quality and quantity are both important, but there is a difference between quality posts and trying to aim for impossible goals. 

Now I have a little more grace with myself, I am a lot more relaxed as a person, and because I am calm I am more able to produce content that is good, at least in my eyes.

I know how hard I work on my posts and that has to be enough. I can handle pressure better because I am not focusing on all the details, but rather keeping my eyes fixed on the bigger picture. 

This is just an example from my own life, maybe for you, it's something different. The moral of the story is simply we should all be a little kinder to ourselves. 

After all, art doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful, now does it?
