My blog (which I haven't updated in a long timeā€¦ is called Ebb and Flow for exactly the reasons you mention, as well as my connection to the tidal waterways I grew up on. Have a lovely ebb, is my advice. The flow will be back soon enough.

I'm curious - how do you go about teaching diligence without that nagging perfection poking it's head up. My girls are still young enough that it's no big deal yet, but I'm interested because my hubby was raised so "perfection" oriented that I've seen the results and I don't want that for my children. I don't want them second guessing every decision they've made, or lacking confidence in their choices. Advice?

This is a problem for my daughter. She is very perfectionistic, afraid to try things if she can't do them as well as she wants. I have consciously tried not to cause this, but perhaps it's a 'do as I say, not as I do' situation?

Sarah, I wish I knew how to do it. I'm afraid it's a tricky balance to strike.
