As a writer, I always almost always look at my work and wonder if one more edit will make it better. Most artists probably do the same; will one more stroke make it perfect? The only time I never wonder if it could be better is when I cook something that tastes amazing!!! And then, often, I can’t remember how I made it, which is not due to dementia, but to the fact I still prefer to try to cook savoury dishes without recipes, simply going by how it tastes. Obviously you need some background in food to know what works with what, but for me taste is the biggest determination of food perfection, not what it looks like.
Be happy… with whatever you have or wherever you are in your life. Everything is perfect and exactly as it is meant to be right now. This moment, right now, is your life. 🙂
