Cast Out Perfectionism!

I originally thought my creative blocks were coming from a lack of project management. I spent months trying to find the "perfect" way to plan my project so I could know what needed to happen next without such a long build up each time I sat down to work. 

Turns out, this was not the root cause.

I became better at planning my work, but I would reach a certain point and decide I needed a new method because "I wasn't getting anywhere." 

I wasn't getting anywhere because I had a fear of putting myself out there, not because I wasn't organized.

The project planning became a distraction for my resistance. 

My trouble was not my method, it was perfectionism. 

I would decide that this method wasn't good enough and begin over with a new draft. Funny thing, that new draft looked a lot like the old draft. The planning was working just fine, what I needed was to unblock my emotional barrier.

Life is not perfect. There is so much cultivated messaging in the world that I am beginning to realize I don't want to be perfect. 

My bar of perfectionism is keeping me from sharing my message. I am ready to break through this barrier and let you see the perfectly imperfect me. I am chaotic within my structure, I like to go where the wind takes me and I like to create. 

Once I can remove this emotional block of resistance, I can make true steps toward my goal of connecting. 

I'm ready to stop overthinking the process and look in the direction I want to go. 

My vision is to connect, share my journey and support you in your creative projects. 

I am moving forward with this dream in the form of a membership model called Patreon. This is a well established site that allows me to share benefits with you as you support my work. 

I am currently working on building a community, Balancing Tree Burrow, for creators to have a safe place to share creative blocks, be encouraged by other artists and celebrate victories. 

Access to this community and a weekly newsletter full of stories, journal questions, guided meditations, emotional tools, and more, is available for any support amount starting at only $3. That's less than a cup of coffee!

Though it is not perfect, I am well on my way. 

Are you ready to break through your creative blocks?
