When I originally set out to create this website, I did it with the intention of creating a simple landing page which would redirect the interested party to my various skills, in the hope of acquiring recognition and perhaps further work in either the video or writing fields. And then I actually bought the domain name, and the hosting for the site, and in the first two weeks I put the code of my site theme through schizophrenic iterations unnumbered before finally setting on the current design - and I still find myself unsatisfied.
This is, I am sure, a symptom of a larger disease of which I am singularly (if not uniquely) afflicted - perfection. This website has become more than a landing page, it has become a new facet of my personality - a whole dimension of the being known as Odin. How could I be satisfied with it, under such conditions, when I have yet to be satisfied with who I am?
The other day however I realized that this step to actualizing my creativity in a more professional and engaging manner, really does speak to a massive change in my psyche, and one immensely toward the positive at that. And I think that is the sort of thing people often forget to complement themselves on, or even take notice of - the little things we do in life, the small victories of personal scope or little note, and yet these are the events that often seem to have the most bearing on my life (at least). I propose that there needs to be a slight shift in concentration in life, so that we recognize our achievements for what they are, and don't dismiss them out of hand because they are not as perfect as we imagined them to be, or not immediately held in high regard by those around us. Sometimes it's enough that we recognize the value in our accomplishments, and leave it at that.
