  1. Thank you for sharing. This post is exactly what i needed to read today as i sit at my desk trying to figure out what i want to do with my life while battling my need for everything to be perfect. it makes tying to do anything so hard! x

  2. Perfect timing. Thank you. I have recently been taking stock of my life. and I have realized i spend 100% of my time waiting to ‘be somebody’ and nervous as all get out that I never will be while at the exact same time too scared to do anything that will ‘make’ me somebody. Newsflash! I am JESSICA. I am somebody. so 3 days ago i started a project that moves me. that makes me happy. makes me live in the moment. And you, my dear stranger who i’ve never even thought of before pinterest searching ‘etsy plan small business’, have inspired me to start a site where i will just be raw with my journey. because honestly, this was kind of a raw post if you really think about it. I’m looking forward to it. this raw process of already being somebody.

  3. Love this! I’ve struggled with waiting for perfect, too, and it’s something I’m actively working against lately. I did it when I launched my blog, for instance. I had a couple of technical difficulties (embarrassing when your day job is as a programmer!) and didn’t have time to prepare as many posts as I’d hoped, but I went ahead and launched it anyway because I knew that I would always be able to find a reason I wasn’t ready yet after all. In the end I felt a mixture of fear and relief at that move; it was scary to think I was putting something less-than-perfect out in the world, but also a relief to let go of that perfectionism and just do it.
