Urban Nature and Releasing Perfectionism

My children’s faces still have traces of breakfast on them when I drop them at school, my last work email had a typo, and I haven’t had time to fix my mother’s printer. I tell myself that I am OK with this.  But try as I might to fend them off, demands for perfection – both internal and external – creep into my head to berate me.

I have even scolded myself for the imperfection of trying to be perfect! Escaping to the natural world helps.
