The start of something new.

Hello out there!
This is strange to me. It feels strange for me to be typing literally anything. I mean like everyone else in the world I write out quick blurbs on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr, but this is the first time I've sat down and actually typed something out in a very long time. It almost feels alien to me to open up a word document (or a blog page) and start typing. I haven't written in microsoft word in over two years, which is just bizarre.
Anyway this isn't about that. This is about the fact that I'm writing again. I'm taking time and forcing myself to start writing this blog. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoy blogging. I've done it before.
I have a terrible habit.
I tend to start things and when it's not perfect I stop doing it. For instance, I really love new stationery, new pens, new notebooks, sketchbooks, and planners. I just want everything that goes into them to look perfect or be perfect for whatever the product is, and so until I can make it perfect it sits. It sits, and it gathers dust, and remains unused until I forget it exists and start they cycle over again. My drawing will never get better that way, my writing will never get better that way, nothing I do is going to get better that way. And, most importantly, nothing I do will ever be perfect.
So I'm trying to stop wanting myself to be a perfectionist about it, and just do it. No matter what it is, I'm just going to start doing it. It may be inconsistent, and sloppy, and nowhere near perfect. But, it won't be wasted, it will be okay, and it will be me.
Welcome my new friends, and maybe some old ones that used read my other blog. It's been a long time, but here I am, starting something new. I hope you enjoy the journey.
