ACCEPTANCE in tablet form Anti-perfectionism, self-compassion Click here for digital leaflet.
Make a list of projects that have never gotten finished that you wished you could have finished; that never fully materialized; that didn’t have the results they deserved; that were abandoned; that feel unsatisfyingly unfinished; and that you know you will never finish.
Take this list and tear it into tiny, tiny, tiny pieces–almost like confetti.
Then choose one of the following: sprinkle the pieces over a fire to burn them; sprinkle them over moving water to sweep them out to the ocean; or sprinkle them over the ground and bury them.
While sprinkling the pieces, say out loud (even if it’s just a whisper): “I am sorry you didn’t get the ending you deserved, but nevertheless, you are now finished. I release you. Be at peace.”
Accept & Embrace better-than-it-was and reject the siren call of perfection
