Gratitude Photo Day 6: Inspiration

inspirationThe whole world is full of inspiration. I am so very, very grateful that I’ve been able to explore just a few corners of this great big world. In my travels, I’ve been inspired to step outside my comfort zone, embrace cultural differences, adopt new attitudes, challenge stereotypes, expand my palate, forge new friendships, consider new perspectives, and create my own opportunities. I hope I’m a better person for the experiences.

Abra cadabra! Bad trait(s) be gone!

perfectionist procrastinator

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Okay, just for a moment, we’ll totally set aside indecisiveness as a trait I want need would like to change, and I’ll tell you that I’m torn between two other things: perfectionism and procrastination. In my opinion, these are two of my worst qualities, and I’ve owned up to them before. According to any decent 12-step program, this is a crucial first step toward recovery. But it doesn’t seem to help in the least that I am fully aware of and freely admit to both weaknesses. Despite numerous attempts and various tactics, I’ve been unable to noticeably alter either characteristic. Occasionally I experience a small victory in one arena or the other, but some days I honestly think the perfectionism is getting worse. I wish I could wave a magic wand and get a handle on this pair of problems once and for all. Maybe it’s time to locate a sponsor who can help me examine past actions and move forward with a new code of personal conduct. Or is it too late to teach an old dog new tricks?
