Latin saying- Omnium rerum principia parva sunt
Meaning- The beginning of all things are small
I battle with perfectionism even though I know it’s a liar.

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER
in the history of the world
Has anyone or anything
Ever given birth to an adult.
Everything, even ideas, start out small. The fact that their survival is 100% dependent on our time and resources does not make them any less perfect.
They are exactly what they need to be.
Someday, they may grow to be big, fierce beasts, but if I do not love them now as babies and let them be what they are, then they will never get there.
Mother of dragons indeed.
