Tiny Motivators from Back in Skinny Jeans

I think we often spend more time planning, and not enough time doing. Then, when I actually start to do something, I get upset because it is not going perfectly like I had invisioned in my head. I need to go ahead and do things instead of waiting for some ideal circumstance or time.

With the mental struggles regarding my weight/body image, this quote really hits home to me. I need to find the balance between high standards, yet realize that I am never going to reach perfection. I remember a quote by Salvador Dali that said, "Have no fear of perfection, you'll never reach it." For some time that quote was on my scale as a reminder that a perfect life doesn't start when you reach a number on the scale.
