Why I just stick that new sticker on my laptop without thinking too much about it

It always takes me a long time to stick a new sticker on my laptop.

I always worry that it might be a little askew and that it might not be in the perfect place.

I find it difficult to write the first words on a brand new notebook, thinking my handwriting is not perfect and my thoughts are worthless, and writing will mess up how pristine the notebook is.

I hate unwrapping gifts. I don’t like destroying the wrapper because the gift won’t look perfect anymore.

Then, it just hit me.

Things don’t have to be perfect but what I have to do is to enjoy the smallest pleasures in life while they last.

Tearing the gift wrapper means enjoying the anticipation to see a surprise.

Writing on a new notebook gives me something to read back years in the future and shock myself thinking how amazing that I have thought of that.

Now, I just stick any sticker on my laptop.

I don’t care if it’s askew.

It’s always askew but the few seconds of sticking that sticker are fun, and it is perfect.
