The Best Way Is To Let Go

The Best Way Is To Let Go

Cue the song.

“Time to let go of trying to find that best way to do that thing before you do it.”

Okay, I paraphrased but it’s basically what I read on someone’s Facebook post a week ago.

Oh my word. How can you possible just say that? You can’t tell me to just do something without finding the best way possible! I have to find the best way! Never mind in the real world I actually mean procrastinating for a LOOOONG time or just never doing it at all.

Because it has to be PERFEEEEEECT!!

Isn’t that the whole point???

Or so I’ve believed almost my entire life. Why? Perfectionism = insecurity. (can I just go on the record and say I dislike the word insecurity… doesn’t make me feel secure, lol) If it’s not perfect, then it’s not really good enough or secure. So it’s better not to try at all. Which is definitely not perfect either, but your mind tends to ignore that point. The brain always finds a way to ignore those good points in favor of an unrealistic mindset it’s created, lol. Thanks brain.

When did I start living my life like CLU from the Tron Legacy movie?

Don't you mess with my perfect world
The computer-program CLU rules the Grid world harshly. His mission though is merely perfection. Which means he’s desperate to eradicate flawed program-beings, those that didn’t come forth from the original programming. Are they really flawed? CLU thinks so. But the real human creator of the Tron game, Flynn, knows they’re not flawed; they just don’t look like what CLU expects.

I decided a long time ago what perfect was. It looked right, sounded amazing, was never messy, wrong, confused, stupid, foolish or definitely DIDN’T go on a journey and process of growth. It already had to be perfect. It couldn’t be disliked by anyone because… it was perfect. Who could dislike that??

It took a long time for me to realize that I’d deviated from the Creator’s idea of perfection… which is growth. Even the word perfection according to Him means maturity. Which you only get maturity by… growth. It’s absolutely messy, wrong sometimes (because you get to learn! Lol), doesn’t have all the answers, looks stupid at times, and is living, growing, becoming full of peace, strength, hope, endurance. But it doesn’t obsessively measure all of that either. I KNOW!!! How is that possible? It just moves like a river, trusting in the Perfect One’s (Jesus) redemption, love, and healing.

let that hair down, girl
Perfect seriously doesn’t exist. Go out and live life. Pursue you dreams, big and small. And feel free to just mess up. Live like Miss Frizzle from The Magic School Bus told us to!
Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!

Obviously you can prepare. I still do it. It’s a fight not to prepare lol. But honestly, I’m not really preparing most of the time. I’m just hoping to postpone whatever it is that I have to do, or would like to do, for another day.

Maybe you only take a small step, but it’s still a step. And every step counts. You’re in the cocoon now and when you emerge, not if, BUT WHEN, you WILL have wings to fly.

Peace out, friends

Six Flying Dragons Review

Six Flying Dragons Review
Once in a while a drama comes onscreen that you were destined to love. Six Flying Dragons had my heart written all over it as soon as I learned about it. I’ll now apologize for the amount of fangirling that is about to commence over this drama…
Asdgjlkghahsgdhs I LUUUUV DIS DRAMA!!!! <3 <3 <3
Despite the fact that I knew this drama was going to be the best thing ever, I didn’t watch it while it aired. I hadn’t committed to finishing a 50-episode drama in a looong time but I knew with this one I would have to make an exception. Finally, when I thought I had the time to start on it, I dived in. So glad I did.
Six Flying Dragons tells the story of the passionate politician Jung Do Jeon who wants to change the decaying government of Goryeo and start a new dynasty and rule of government with virtuous General Yi Seong-Gye as king. However, it is Yi Seong-Gye’s fourth son, Yi Bang-Won, who relates most to Jung Do Jeon’s dream – and who will also be Jun…

Cinderella and the Four Knights: Episode 1 Recap

Cinderella and the Four Knights is here! This K-drama recaptures the old fun from popular dramas like You're Beautiful and Boys Before Flowers with the "pretty boy" squad and plucky, poor heroine who wins all their hearts. The real question is, how will our Cinderella ever be able to choose? Here's a recap of the first episode!
The Introduction

The episode starts out with the heroine, Eun Ha-Won, whose life closely resembles that of Cinderella, working endless part-time jobs while dealing with a selfish step-mom and step-sister.

We also meet the three Kang grandsons: very different cousins who don’t get along at all. Kang Seo-Woo is the quieter cousin who focuses on his music. Kang Hyun-Min is a womanizer who is constantly breaking up with girls (and giving them expensive parting gifts to soften the blow, lol). Through flashbacks we see he’s been with his rich grandfather, CEO Kang, the longest. Kang Ji-Woon is the newest addition – he was found recently, the long-los…

What A Girl Wants Review

I still remember the first time I watched this film – at my friend’s house, sitting on her bedroom floor, watching it on a small television with a VHS player. Hehe. Those were the days. What A Girl Wants is a modern, somewhat looser Cinderella retelling that while a simple, cheesy teen flick, has a lot of sweet charm to it, especially with its message of father-daughter relationships and finding one’s identity.

The story starts out with Daphne Reynolds who lives with her single mom, Libby, in Chinatown, New York. Her mom’s a wedding singer while Daphne, at seventeen, is working odd jobs and trying to decide what to do next with her future. At one of the weddings, Daphne is working as waitress when the father-daughter dance begins. Her mother recognizes that forlorn look and tries to console Daphne, but Daphne’s pained at the thought that her father-daughter dance will never come.

It’s been enough years of waiting for Daphne. She finally sets out for London, leaving her mom a note exp…
