Delicious Ambiguity and Perfectionism

Delicious Ambiguity??

As an extension to Monday’s post, “The Art of Managing Your Life (Or Not),” sometimes life is a bit ambiguous.  We don’t always know what we’re going to get.  Yet we Trust it will be something good.

 Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity. ~ Gilda Radner

And to the comments I received stating something to the effect of, “But Leslie, it’s so haaaaaaard to find the balance.  I could never just wander aimlessly, with no plan, and enjoy myself.  See, I’m a perfectionist.”  I’ll offer you the words of Ze Frank:

“Perfectionism may look good in his shiny shoes, but he’s a little bit of an asshole and no one invites him to their pool party.”

Oh!  I just couldn’t resist a little pre-weekend humor!  I hope you enjoy yours!!  :-)

Love, Leslie

The Art of Stone Stepping

“Let me not think of my work only as a stepping stone to something else, and if it is, let me become fascinated by the shape of the stone.”  ~ Ze Frank

How often are you focused on the end result?  I admitted in Friday’s post that being focused on the destination is where I often live, unfortunately, not always enjoying the beauty of the journey.

And what about these stepping stones?  The bits and pieces along the way helping to take us from point A to B and from B to C.  How insignificant the stepping stones appear.  Even annoying or bothersome at times.

However, these stepping stones have been so cleverly placed on our path.  Without them, no progress would be made and that oh-so desperate end goal would never be realized.

Take a moment and stop.  For today, do not rush.  Do not stumble.  Deliberately sit on your stone.  Discover its ridges, its curves.  Become fascinated by its shape.

Ultimately, Trust you are where you’re supposed to be.
