What Does Perfect Mean?

Zendala4192013Today’s card is a Zentangle from April. My Zentangle anniversary just passed so I wanted to celebrate it a bit. For those of you who are familiar with my addiction, thank you for sticking around. ๐Ÿ˜€

I haven’t looked at this one in a while. Now I see it in a different light. I love the trapped look of the wavy things under the pointy things on the left. And the trippy tunnel effect on the top right? ๐Ÿ˜€ Yeah,it makes me grin.

What I really like is how the thing has depth. That’s the hardest for me….depth in these. I just play around with them a lot. Sometimes it works. Parts of this one work for me.

I find Zentangles work on my perfectionist button very well. I have to step away from “I can’t do it because it won’t be right. I have to let that go. It’s good to let that go.

Humans aren’t perfect. Many aboriginal people have practices that include intentional mistakes. Did you know that? It’s because Deity is the only perfection in the world. To be perfect is to insult God in some cultures.

How fabulous is that for an excuse?

“I’m sorry but I had to screw that up or it would insult God.”

I think I’m going to leave it at that.

Yep, that’s your journal prompt for today.

“What is the meaning of not perfect in your world?”

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.

  1. Ah, perfectionism is one I’ve struggled with decades. Not that I’m anywhere near perfect in anything, but oh, how I tried to be. I hope I’m letting that go more these days… Ha, haven’t tangled in a while, but I was thinking about it just a couple of hours ago – a definite sign ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I’m doing my best to release perfection. Perfection is an unachievable illusion as far as I’m concerned. It keeps us stuck. If I wanted what I create to be perfect, it would never get finished.
