230120 – Waiting for Perfect

I haven’t written in a long time.

I often write blog posts in my head, I think of things I would love to share… but then I talk myself out of it.

Excuses creep in.

Insecurity creeps in.

I’m always waiting for perfect. The perfect moment, the perfect topic.

I tell myself that I need to be a better writer, I need a better laptop, I need more time to edit. The list of excuses go on.

I also worried in the past that I would be judged by what I write. or that I would attract keyboard warriors that will cut me down.

Well here I am, the 23rd of January 2020 – showing up and silencing the excuses. Embracing the insecurity and remembering that there has to be a day 1 someday.

Surrendering to the Imperfectly Perfect.


So, what do I have to share today?

Its hot as ever today in Sydney Australia. Its 41 Degrees Celsius. Probably not going to help the current bush fire situation.

For someone with a breathing problem like myself, that is a stay inside day. So I’ve got the oxygen on and enjoying the air-con.

School for Sydney resumes next week. New year. My son will be in year 6! His last year of Primary school before high school. I’m going to enjoy every bit of the year.

It was my birthday 2 days ago. I had the day off work and enjoyed some time with people I love. I had breakfast with some cousins and aunties. Dinner with my parents, husband and son.

Whats it like where you are today?

Until next time. Make it a good day

Ange : )

  1. I am so happy to see you back blogging. You were one of the first bloggers I followed when I started my blog. I like the way you write. May I suggest getting a book of daily writting prompts to help you get out of waiting for the perfect subject? I used them daily for a while a few years back when i was really feeling unsure of my skills as a blogger. I posted a few of them on my blog but most were just kept in a notebook by my bed. It gets the creative juices running when I was stuck.

  2. Hello! Hope you’re well. It has been a while. Thanks for the great tips! 🙂
