Its become a bit of a ritual now to have a reflective moment each year on my birthday. Last year, I shared 27 lessons I had learnt in life so far. This year, I won't be sharing 28 lessons, lol. This year is simpler, albeit a little deep.
I'm a bit of a perfectionist. Although it has proven helpful at times, it can also be quite a handicap.
You create a standard of perfection in your mind that even you can't attain. And when you fail over and over to attain it, you get so critical of yourself that you inspire yourself into discouragement and regret. The journey then loses its appeal when you are struggling to fit into a mold instead of allowing expressions of your heart to lead you to create your own path.
So this year is about one main resolve... Its about shedding perfectionism and embracing the candid. I reckon candid is not the opposite of perfectionism, but a contrast exists. And where that contrast exists is where my new resolution comes in to embrace the beauty in the informal and the sincerity in the natural. And to stop trying so hard to strike the perfect pose when the best photos are the candid shots.
