Perfectly Imperfect

I have  been getting good rest, spending time with friends and have felt pretty healthy, so imagine my surprise to find that I had been diagnosed with A.S.A. even though I had felt great I had to admit that there had been something off about me lately I was putting off posting on TCM, I was putting off marketing my business, I was putting off eating healthy and working out it was all thanks to A.S.A. So you’re probably “Oh my God what is a.s.a”?!
“Could I have it”?!
“Is it contagious”
A.S.A as I like to call it just an acronym that for; “as soon as”. And now you’re officially going “what the heck is she talking about”/ “is that a real thing”?! I call what I have a.s.a but it really is just plain old procrastination. A.S.A. is what we say when we are about to put something off (or procrastinate) until something  is in place, perfect or we just finally can’t put it off anymore. I have found myself putting off things that could be done now off because I want to do them perfectly;

Needing to post on my blog but I don’t have the best camera or editing skills
“as soon as I take this class and get a better camera I’ll post more”
I have put off exercise but don’t have nice workout clothes
“As soon as I get the right workout clothes I’ll go to the gym”

I need to start designing again but my space is unorganized

As soon as I get more organized I’ll design again”
I need to get organized but don’t have proper containers

“As soon as I get containers I’ll get organized”

Despite how much I try A.S.A seems to take over every time, I guess I’m the world’s laziest perfectionist.  But as of today I  am no longer waiting until situations are perfect to make moves because life isn’t perfect and neither am I. I  want my life’s legacy to be the woman who did not the woman who wanted to as soon as…
