Perfectionism - A Joy-Sucker

“That isn’t good enough to show anyone.”
“Those other bloggers do the coolest things, and I’m always doing the same boring stuff.”
“If only I could drop these last 7 pounds, I would be so happy.”
“Why didn’t I remember to ask her about her trip? I can be so self-absorbed.”
“I should really finish up these chores instead of enjoying this gorgeous day.”
“How do the other moms do it?”
“Why can’t I be more patient with the kids?”

Do any of those sound familiar?  I’ll admit that I fall prey to that type of negative talk despite decades of conscious effort to be positive and self-supportive.  I’ve read self-help books, seen a therapist (a couple actually), tried meditating, kept a journal, written letters to myself. I’ve tried a lot of things, but that unhealthy inner dialogue is really difficult to squelch.  And I think it’s a problem that many of you have as well.

Something is Coming

Hey friends,

I want to start by apologizing for my long absence.  Summer swept me away and took my focus and ambition with it.  Now that fall has kinda sorta arrived (63 degrees today), I am revving back up with big plans, lots of new things, and a different look.

My plans are to launch this new stuff by October 1st, but I'll let you know the big day as we get closer.

Thanks for your understanding.
