It has been a long time since I felt so uncomfortable.
This summer I decided to learn wakeboarding. I have tried it before, but this summer I decided to become better at it!
I forgot how uncomfortable and stressful it can be to learn something you are bad at. I realized that I still struggle with my perfectionism, as I wanted to swim well right away.
I mean, who would like to hit their face (multiple times) into the water in front of a big crowd?
But then I realized:
- Only in challenging situations we are growing.
- Practice and more practice will help.
- It is alright to look silly and no one really cares.
- We shouldn't strive for perfectionism. We should aim for PROGRESS.
Even though I still feel nervous and a bit anxious before going into the water, I also feel motivated to grow and become better. This can apply to any situation. At the end of the day, internal motivation and excitement should fuel us, not perfectionism.
Not many orchestral concerts were composed by Bach. Or perhaps they were lost through time and fire. ⏳🔥
But this one caught my attention! Enjoy the didactics and the performance! 😊🎹
