My Show and Tell today is a little unusual ... for 2 reasons:
1. I don't usually share personal stuff and
2. It's embarrassing ... but sort of funny ... but something I need to get over.
I AM A PERFECTIONIST (and I don't like it one little bit). Okay, that's not totally true. I like it in moderate amounts because it means I usually do a reasonably good job at whatever is important to me.
And actually, in all honesty I need to clarify. I'm not a perfectionist in all things, just stuff I make and stuff around my house. I like my house to be pretty and clean and tidy and when it's not I feel very very antsy. Unless I'm totally overworked and stressed out and then I don't care about my house. Good grief! Is everyone full of these kinds of contradictions?
But we've just had THE MOST BEAUTIFUL kitchen reno and I keep peering at the cabinets and discovering little marks and scratches!!! That doesn't sound good, does it? Marks on 3-week-old cabinets? You might even be sympathizing with me. But people, even I have to admit these marks are so minuscule you can only see them in a certain light, from a certain angle, at a certain time of day!
So after much much much thought I've decided to seriously get to work on this character trait of mine. I need to put it in perspective. Because I'm very thankful for my beautiful new kitchen and realize how fortunate we are to be able to do something like this.
So my focus is going to be thankfulness, appreciation, and love for what I already have. Oh yes, and maybe not wear my glasses in the kitchen!
That was my TELL and here is my SHOW ....
