I Am Not Perfect | The Real Catherine Hall
I recently read my blog and realized that while its chalk full of accomplishments it doesn’t really say anything about ME but rather only talks about what I do. In fact with the exception of a few photographic highlights (thanks to my clients!) it is pretty boring. It almost reads like a visual resume.
As a perfectionist, I have only wanted to share my “perfect” side. A laundry list of my accomplishments and basically a self-promoting bore, my blog lacks substance, it lacks personality, it lacks me.
Things are going to change. No more self-gloating manuscript I am ready to share not just my work and accomplishments, but also what makes me tick, my strengths, my weaknesses, and well anything relevant to my career and life.
Can’t wait to see read the real side of you…I liked the perfect you, but I think I’ll like the imperfect you just as much. Good for you for deciding to do this.
I’m so glad to read this Catherine!! And it definitely makes me much more excited to check out your blog more often. I’ve admired your work for a long time, and the little bit of “in person time” I’ve had with you was very nice, but I’m super excited to get to know “you” a little better, not just your work, even if it is just through the internet. Bravo on your realizations and I look forward to whats to come : )
Hey there Catherine :)
Someone I’m following twittered about your blog post and I just had to stop by and say that I love – so happy for you! I’m definitely following you on Twitter now too :)
