I've not really loved this chapter in Journal Fodder 365. I suppose I've found a lot of the prompts didn't necessarily speak to me on the deeper level that the previous chapters did. Or perhaps it's that I've been a little busier this past month. Who knows.
Anyway, this prompt was embracing imperfection. Most of the questions were to do with control and letting go of control to embrace imperfections. I think I was a little sidetracked by the control issue rather than the imperfection. I was thinking about how I'm a contained person. I like to be in control of myself. I think a lot of it comes from having been bullied at school. Letting go and possibly making a fool of myself is something I find difficult. I've been laughed at just for being me - how much more so if I actually did something stupid? So I'm fairly controlled.
On the other hand, in art I can be free and try new things and not be in control of the outcome. That's fun and if I don't like the result, well, it's only paint and paper.
So how about you? Do you embrace imperfection?
