The word isn't really a word. It is three words, with two more and is more of a feeling, an attitude more than anything else. What are these wise words I hear you saying.
Just do it -
There you have it. Just do it - with imperfections.
Events have made me realise that I need to just do things, get on and try them. It doesn't matter if they are not perfect. Yes, I would love everything that I do to be totally wonderful and always turn out right, but that isn't going to happen. So rather than waiting I am going to go for it. Also, rather than being scared I am going to just do it. It is the scared that is more likely to stop me. The imperfections applies more to things like my sock knitting - of which more on the podcast.
So that is how I came to "Just do it - with imperfections". I was thinking of adding "and all", but I like it as it is. I (will) have added these words to the top of the sidebar on the blog and have also written them in the front of my journal/diary to remind me. In the old days of screensavers I would have had these words going past on my screen, but I don't do that any more. Not even sure if you still can do that. I used to have screensavers with words and phrases to remind me and inspire me all the time 15 or so years ago - long before this word of the year thing that many of us do now. I really have been doing it a long time, it isn't a bandwagon thing for me.
In the spirit of just do it I have done something already that I am terrified about. I have booked to go and have an eye test - if you have seen my podcasts you will know I wear glasses. They terrify me and I haven't had one for years - yes, I know, I am terrible! - but I have booked the test, it is next week, I will let you know how it goes. I am thinking of going for some of those large black framed glasses. I have a question though, are they still the "in" thing? Do let me know if not and what is in! I want what is in, and what suits me, for once in my life. I have tried Hubby's large black squareish ones on and he says they look good on me so I hope they are still fashionable.
Also, as I mentioned I have just totally off the cuff recorded a little podcast/vlog of about 20 minutes long I think. I will probably get it up next week sometime to give me time to edit it and so on. Another just do it moment.
So that is me, just do it - with imperfections.
How about you, have you made any decisions yet about words or inspirations or plans for the year. Do share, I would love to know!
p.s. there was a grammatical and spelling error in this, I had to change it. Some imperfections I can't live with!
