Six Word Meme

Before I say anything else, I want to say that I absolutely love this whole "scheduled post" option that Blogger now offers. It completely rocks.

So now. Quite some time ago, April tagged me for a six word meme. Six. Words. I have to tell you, April, that I have not been ignoring you, but six words? Please. When have you ever known me to stop at six words when describing anything, much less myself? So all this time, when you thought I was ignoring you or had forgotten, this little challenge has been floating around in the back of my head, popping up at these very odd moments. I would think I had something just perfect, but then alas, too many words by one, or not enough...I don't know, panache? Something, I don't know. But I couldn't think in terms of six.

Last night, though, after yet one more incident involving panic and insecurity, one of those times where I was just sure that I can never measure up and that this is my life, it hit me. And I let it go, really, thinking "Okay, well, if I still remember it tomorrow, maybe..."

This morning? Yep. Still there. Loud and clear. It describes me right this moment, and it also destined to become my personal mantra when things start getting dicey in my head again.

"Competition over... I am perfect enough."

Your template is much better now.

Nice 6 words.

Mine for today is
'No matter how hard you try'

That's perfect! Or should I say perfect enough?

No, really, it's awesome.

That is great! I need to post this on my fridge.
Those six words are fantastic!
I am my worst enemy and am always making things too tough for myself. Expectations are too high, there just arent enough hours in the day.

That is perhaps the single best personal mantra I've ever heard/seen.
