“Stop being such a perfectionist”
“It is what it is…”
These are the things I tell myself almost on a daily basis concerning Twillypop. I struggle with fitting everything in: time with my God, my kids, my husband, schoolwork, housework and even time with my friends. I war with myself daily over the fact that I can’t seem to relax about Twillypop even though it’s NO BIG DEAL. I have wished and wished that I could just stick a few necklaces on Etsy and leave it at that. But I can’t. New designs, pictures, names, descriptions, a second shop and all that these things entail constantly invade my thoughts. All the time. When I’m present, I am not present because there is something else on my mind. When I am doing anything other than working on my business, I constantly feel burdened to get back at it. Twillypop has invaded all that I think and do…
And because I KNOW how silly it is to have let this become so important I try to fight it, and stick with it, and fight what it is in my nature that so desperately wants to do EVERYTHING well……and perfect. I have come to realize that there really is no fighting this part of me..any more than there is a way to devote this much of myself to more than one area of my life. So, I admit…….acknowledge, that almost every other area of my life has suffered as a result…….
