Five Minute Friday - Finish

Finish is far too much like saying goodbye.  Maybe that is why I struggle to finish things.  I tell people I'm the idea person.  I have all sorts of great ideas. I have started some amazing projects.  Finished, not so much. Part of the problem is that I am never satisfied with the product.  Which is why Five Minute Friday is so liberating.  I have to finish.  I have to let it go.  It is a blessing.

    Yes. I get it! It is the one blog post I do, most weeks, even if I do no others.
    Blessings to you.

  2. Yes! It's a great gift to ourselves to let things be incomplete, and imperfect. I totally agree finishing is very much like a 'goodbye' or even a 'bereavement'. There's no adding to it or changing it... and as creative people we sometimes feel a compulsion to keep 'fiddling' or 'improving' it... letting go and putting the pen/brushes/needles down is the hardest part. It's true - and astonishing - that God loves us, as we are, imperfect as we are. Perfect acceptance.

  3. short, sweet, and laden with truth.

    this is why I love FMF.

    and it's so good to meet you this week, Kelli! i hope we'll get to rub shoulders again sometime soon ...
