Perfectionism. It's almost become a four-letter word. There is no doubt that I am a perfectionist, that I hold myself to incredibly high standards in everything I do... and most of the time, that's not really a bad thing. After all, anything worth doing is worth doing well. But being a perfectionist means I'm a bit of a lone wolf - I rarely trust anyone to help me with anything; I work best on my own and on occasion, set myself up for failure because my expectations of myself are unrealistic. When I received this adorable necklace from BRIKA, I immediately had a vision of how I wanted to style it and how I wanted the photos to look. My focus on getting exactly the right shots was so intent that when we came home from the shoot and discovered that the photos that had looked so good on the camera's display were in fact mostly out of focus, I was so frustrated that I almost deleted them all in the heat of the moment. In the end, I'm glad I didn't - if I've learned anything from trying to rein in my perfectionist tendencies, it's that no one notices those little imperfections that can drive me crazy and, more importantly, that in the grand scheme of things, those little imperfections don't matter at all. I know I'm not the only one who goes through this so tell me - if you're a perfectionist, how do you deal?
