"This is a work in progress".

I have always felt that life is a work in progress. The truth is, I let my obsession with perfection get in the way of a lot of things. I think I should have it all together the first day, the first hour, the first minute of a project. I am still learning that I am a work in progress. I have to be easier on myself and I have to appreciate how far I have come thus far in my life. I can't let my own fear of failure dictate how far I can go. I can't let my own pre-conceived notions about what success looks like hold me back. I am going to accept and embrace that I am a work in progress. I am human and I will fail, fall, get messy, and get rejected. 

I hope that someday I can look back and say I tried as hard as I could and I gave it my all. That is all we can all hope for.
