TSF SPEAKS || CONSTANT PROGRESSION IS FAR VALUABLE THAN CONSTANT PERFECTION

Sometimes we are so focused on what other people are doing that we lose sight and true meaning of the purpose of why we are doing the things we love doing. If blogging has thought me anything meaningful is that constant progression is far valuable than constant perfection. I remember when I started blogging, I tried to conform to what other top bloggers were doing as I saw their work as perfection but was later dissatisfied with the content I was putting out because to me it never screamed originality. So, what do I do?
I decided to take it gradually so I can make mistakes, learn from it and see how I can improve and now looking back I’ve made progress and still am. I knew the mistakes I was making and learnt from them, that’s progression.
Honestly speaking, if I had conform to what other bloggers were doing I wouldn’t think there was anything wrong with the content I was putting out, why? because I believed then everything was perfect which shouldn't be so. Even those who we think are perfect in what they do are still trying to find balance between perfection and progression.
They say practice makes perfect, let's scratch that because nothing is perfect in this world, everything is flawed in its own unique way and plus, perfection is boring. Like I mentioned in one of my TSF speaks HERE The closest thing to perfection is constant growth, it’s so much enjoyable seeing progress in what you are doing, be it blogging, writing, drawing, makeup, photography, learning, music and so many other things. So, strive to make constant progress, focus on that and not constant perfection otherwise you’d get yourself depressed trying to keep up with perfection. There are days when things won’t go as planned, you have no option but to embrace it, learn from it and then devise a plan on how to improve the next time. Perfection is boring trust me, ok, let’s be rational, imagine a world where everything is perfect............. yeah, it wouldn’t be fun would it? Also, you’d have to agree with me even a perfect personality is just boring, where is the weirdness, craziness, quirks and all that good stuff that makes you unique. My point is, sweet heart make those mistakes, learn from it and focus more on constant progression in everything you do rather than constant perfection. Focus on you, like I always say sometimes the grass looks greener over there because it is fake, so Hun! Focus on the grass you are standing on, water it and see it flourish, instead of comparing, complaining or even trying to conform. 
Talk to you in my next post, be you, be safe, be kind, stay blessed and remain humble.

FINAL WORD!
Remember this, if there is no struggle, there is no progress, even if it's slow progress, progress is still progress so, always be a work in progress. Thanks for reading, please share this, like us on our Facebook Page follow on Instagram or Subscribe to the blog to never miss a new post on the blog.

  23. Well said Bernie, I like the definition between progression and perfection. Sometimes it's easy to look at others and try to copy them (only to be disappointed that it won't be the same) instead of staying original. You look so pretty in green suit.

  34. Such a great motto to live by, Bernie. I am a perfectionist myself, and more often than not, it leads to frustration, so focusing on how far we've come and how far we've got yet to come is super important to stay positive and keep on developing. Love your dress BTW! Kisses from England
