Do you struggle with perfectionism? Me too. 💁‍♀️ I used to think of perfectionism as a good thing, as something to be proud of. That was until I learned that perfectionism has a mighty cost. I used to play in a band called Foamy Ed from 1996 – 2008 and was one of the main songwriters. My bandmates would often be asleep in studios on couches at 3 am while I meticulously made sure every note, every beat, everything I could was absolutely refined and the best it could be. Band practices were consumed with “Let’s play it again” and I knew it was really hard on them at times. While my high standards did help bring us a certain level of success, I know that I was annoying. I’m sure my perfectionism stifled a lot of creativity and caused frustration that was unnecessary and sapped some of the joy of our jams. So what changed for me, a now recovering perfectionist? And how can you overcome perfectionism? In my latest blog article, you'll discover: 1. How to figure out whether perfectionism is costing you 2. How to triage items and invest your time on the things that matter most 3. 3 questions you can ask yourself to help you focus on the right tasks 🔦 4. 3 simple steps to help you overcome perfectionism 🏆 To read the article, visit: www.katmillar.com and click Blog 👌🏼 . . . . #perfectionism #recoveringperfectionist #productivitytips #timemanagement #productivityhacks #mindsetiseverything #growthmindset #youareenough #selfgrowth #selfacceptance #highperformancehabits #successhabits #entrepreneurtips #entrepreneurlifestyle #entrepreneurmindset #sydneyentrepreneurs

Dear Depression, Social Anxiety, ADHD & OCD...You made me feel worthless - I felt like a burden - I felt like a failure & that I would never be good enough in this world. You turned me into my own worst enemy - I beat myself up for every mistake I made - tiny or big. I looked in the mirror disgusted with what I saw. You shot dark thoughts into my head & kept me awake as my own mind haunted me. Anxiety, Your constant worrying never allowed me be present - my life was either regretting my past, or fearing my future. Every choice ran through my brain endlessly - leaving me unable to make choices in fear of messing up. You never let me get over my past - always in a state of “what if”. You made it impossible for me to have a social life - talking, eating, &being with people was a nightmare. You made me feel alone & caused me to isolate myself & lose contact with family/friends. You used every tear in my body, as I cried my eyes out until it burned. You drained my energy to the point where falling asleep in class was a daily happening,accompanied by my teacher picking on me - “Look who decided to actually show up for class today” my teacher blurted out in-front of all my classmates. [Humiliation, fury, embarrassment]. To ADHD, you made school incredibly difficult - I felt isolated from my peers. Nobody wanted to be my partner. I was rejected by my own peers for simply learning differently than them. I felt dumb, stupid, &incapable of success. For me, self esteem was non-existent. OCD, you turned my life into a ball of fear. The irrational thoughts that came with the need for order, perfection, &symmetry disrupted my mind. Panic attacks, U hurt me mentally&physically.U caused me chest pain, alarming panic, &difficulty breathing. &Despite it all, I am here today-stronger than ever before.The brutality, shame, & struggle taught me more about myself than I thought was possible.I turned the anger U caused me into fuel to work & fight harder, like my life depends on it, because it does.U taught me to love my imperfections, stay focused on my priorities &most importantly, U took me to the darkest places for me to realize that I matter. #dearmentalillness , Thank you. 💪🏻

#Repost @drchristinacruz VUNERABLE POST. Her reflection below on this quote was one of my main reasons I went on a temporary social media detox recently. I was noticing I was having alot of "off days" and was feeling very much out of control. Not having much interest in doing much of anything. I even said no to a free norteño concert (my fave mexican dance music) During this detox I recognized that I was very good of "running away" or "avoiding" what needed to be addressed with myself. It was difficult but so much healing took part. And I continue to be a work in progress as we all are. During times of darkness is definitely an uphill battle to reach out for support without feeling " a burden to others", or" too much " but its been such a transformative and healing process. Thank you to my #unexpectedangels that checked in on me and/or answered my calls, texts during the last few months. I appreciate you. 💞🌈 • • • • • Yesterday I was having one of those days. You know, those days where you doubt yourself. Where everything seems to just go wrong. Those days where nothing feels in your control?⁣ ⁣ Well, the funny thing about control is it's alluring. People gravitate toward control because it feels safe and predictable. And in the moment, nothing about my life felt predictable. I was craving certainty.⁣ ⁣ Once I accepted what I was feeling, I shifted to focusing on what WAS in my control. Like, how I spoke to myself, how I took care of myself emotionally, and the self-care that felt nurturing to me. Once I focused on what was in my control, guess what? my craving for predictability faded away.⁣ ⁣ Learning to let go of the desire to control uncontrollable things needs to be a constant self- reminder.

Done with the perfect posts. Today I share a “fail”. After almost 30 years of life, I have to come to terms that I will never be perfect. Or even close to perfect. I’ve spent more time attempting to immailuate perfection than actually being me. So much so that I believed for a long time it was who I truly was. But after what seems a really long and difficult time at work I’ve accepted I can only do so much. Everyone takes and takes from me but not one person asks what they can do for me. To the point that I am sacrificing my sanity and my potential success to please others. I’m tired of feeling inadequate. I’m tired of the self doubt. I’m tired of not being enough. I’m tired of being my worst enemy. But today I say no more. Today I fly free. Today I accept I am not perfect. Today I will spend more time with my kids. Because of all the things I know. In this life is that money will not bring my happiness. Working long hours doesn’t make me a better friend or parent. I will be present for my kids. I will be present for my friends. I am enough. #overcomingobstacles #anxiety #perfectionism #befree #letgo #livealittle #iamenough #acceptance #mentalhealth #workingmom #corporatelife #stress #selfdoubt #personal #insecurities #growthmindset #developmemt *Shout out to the person that I look up to so much at work. For helping me see the light. He is a leader, grinder and excellent teacher. I could tag him but then I’d have to kill you. Jk. 😝*
In order to repair the things we missed out on in our development we need to give it to ourselves now and find relationships with people who are capable of giving those things to us. This can be difficult because it isn't familiar. The brain tends to choose the familiar over the happy or the fulfilling, so it takes an extra step to find the nurturing you missed out on. Once you do find it, enjoy heaps and heaps of it. Nurture yourself tons. Let yourself be nurtured. Make a list of things that feel nurturing to you and have it on hand for when you're having a bad day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #selfcare #selfacceptance #selfrespect #selflove #acceptance #radicalselfacceptance #selfcareisntselfish #youdontneedtobeperfect #perfectionism #anxiety #coping #copingskills #comeasyouare #nurtureyourself #nurture #restup #relax #takeatimeout #therapy #therapist #encouragment #pressuretobeperfect #pressuretoperform #societalpressures #metime #selfcompassion #acceptyourself #therapy #therapist #attachment
So, I had this thought come to me on how to visualize the importance of the Embracing Intensity Community! . You see, I tried to follow the conventional wisdom of focusing on 1:1 coaching first - but my heart wasn't as in it because building community is at the heart of everything I do! When I started the podcast, I got a little closer, but then I was mostly producing free content in a way that actually COST money, so that was not sustainable. . This got me thinking of various ways to support the free content I was already producing by spreading myself too thin into too many directions in products and services. Each one has great potential, but I realized I could only focus on one at a time. So for now, the most financially sustainable option is to focus on the Educational Assessment and Consultation piece. . That brings me back though to the heart of my work, which is building community and thus the Embracing Intensity Community was born. Not only does this provide an intimate community of gifted and outside the box thinkers who "get it," it also has the potential to provide a core financial stability to keep my free content going, and eventually branch out to add new products and services again (in orange). . With the time limitations of having a "day job," this seems to me the best way to continue my mission of sharing the Embracing Intensity Podcast, blog and community calls free while building a vibrant community for a small monthly fee ($10 with flexible options). . Social media connections can be great, but breaking out into a stand alone community lets us build and connect deeper relationships in a way that the fast paced "clickable content" atmosphere of social media can't. .

When you scroll through social media you are seeing a tiny glimpse into most people’s motherhood. A 2 second account of their day. The perfectly sleeping baby, the siblings hugging and getting along, the clean kitchen, and the happy couple. And that’s ok, you are allowed to post the happy pictures, the filtered pictures, the posed pictures. There’s nothing wrong with that, those happy moments can be so real and you want to share them! But what you shouldn’t do is hold yourself to the standard that every other mom is perfect. Because they aren’t, and you will never be perfect either and that’s totally ok! Perfectionism in motherhood is a real thing that makes many moms feel anxious and feel that what they are doing will never be enough. I believe in the art of the good enough mother as described by Winnicot (let me know if you want more info on this research). Essentially means that if we are loving our kids, using the skills and tools we have to the best of our abilities, giving our kids a safe place to land... we are doing great. This doesn’t mean we do nothing, but it means that we give ourselves grace and realize that a good mother isn’t made in one moment or one thing, it’s made in thousands of tiny moments. So if today was less than perfect that’s ok. You kept them alive, you kept them safe, you kept them loved. Tomorrow is a new day filled with new opportunities. If you feel like perfectionism is something you can’t seem to work through on your own, tell someone in your life about it. It can be so hard to feel like you constantly aren’t measuring up and you don’t have to go through this alone!!💖

An exercise for when struggling with low self-esteem, negative self-talk and/or comments. Slow down and take inventory, allow yourself to notice (not avoid) what's coming up, and give it permission to be (not holding on to or trying to push it away). Then come back to what you know of self. Remember your strengths, capacity, survivorship, resilience, all round badass-ness! Take inventory and remember all of you. #bowmanville #clarington #courtice #orono #newcastle #ontario #anxiety #depression #perfectionism #momlife #dadlife #parenting #expectations #acceptance #selfesteem #selfcare #selflove #selfcompassion #mindfulness #mindset #healing #resilience #strength #badass #wellness #wellbeing #mentalhealth

I’ve struggled with #perfectionism since as young as I can remember. It affected my day to day life in so many ways! I was so hard on myself, and wasted so much time caring about insignificant things. In my early 20’s I got this tattoo as a reminder - and then had anxiety about the tattoo itself for years lmao! But today, at 27, I love my tattoo and the reasons for it! I love the person I’m becoming and all of my imperfections!🥰🥳 • • • #selflove #bodypositive #womenempowerment #proudofme #progress #tattooedgirl #inkedgirls #imperfectionisbeauty #loveyourself #bekindtoyourself #beautyisintheeyeofthebeholder #happygirl #selfie #selfiegram #fitnessjourney #weightgainjourney #instaselfie #selfielove #fitnessgirl #progressnotperfection
“He’s mad at you,” my brain told me for the 579th time that morning. Five seconds later, my husband smiled a genuine smile 😊 and asked, “what do you wanna do for breakfast?” That thought my brain loves to cycle on repeat was 💥shattered💥 by cold hard reality, once again.⠀ ⠀ 💫We see other people through our own lens, but that lens is tinted. Everything gets filtered through our belief systems, histories, moods, and perceptions. We distort reality, especially when it comes to interpreting others’ inner experiences. ⠀ ⠀ ➡️ For example, sometimes, people are quiet because they’re tired. Sometimes they’re quiet because they just have nothing to say. Sometimes they’re quiet because they’re mad. ⠀ ⠀ YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT SOMEONE IS FEELING unless they explicitly communicate it to you.⠀ ⠀ ✨ Over the years, my brain has told me the “they’re mad at you” story so many times with so many people and situations, that I’ve stopped buying in. I see the thought for what it really is— just an old insecurity. When I do occasionally think there could be validity to the thought, though, I have a tool handy: communicating! ⠀ ⠀ 🤷🏽‍♀️ Because yes, though it doesn’t happen NEARLY as often as my brain might tell me, sometimes a person actually IS mad at me. And sometimes I know because they tell me. And sometimes they don’t tell me, but I’m still suspicious, and I see other signs indicating it could be true, so the only course of action is to ASK (wild 😜, I know).⠀ ⠀ When do 🌟you🌟 misinterpret how you think someone is feeling? How has that gotten you in trouble?⠀ ⠀ (image credit: @positivelypresent )
I thought those shattered shards of 24 years could transform into a different kind of union with the Ex.

This one hits home for me today... I made a big mistake, huge actually and felt terrible about it. I couldn’t shake that feeling of “OHMYGOD- how could I have done that?!?” After some time, I was able to give myself a break. Mistakes happen, I am ONLY human. and try as much as I can. I make them. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I will try not to make the same one again. I CAN however stop beating myself up for it. . When you find yourself stuck on a mistake small or large, and notice that it affects your day or even longer. Acknowledge: ⭐️first that you are human . ⭐️second you aren’t expected to be perfect . ⭐️third that everyone on earth has made a mistake. (Even the person you hold the highest.) . Give yourself permission to make a mistake and try again on a different day. A mistake does not mean you’re a failure, that you aren’t a good person, that you won’t be successful, or at the very least... don’t deserve to have a good day or life. Bob Ross was the king of turning small mistakes into happy accidents, he believed there was no accident that couldn’t improve a painting. Simply put it’s all about the way you look at the situation. . Challenge the belief system you have about mistakes and what it means when you make them or others make them. You might be surprised by how much that changes your perspective. . #AhimsasAdvice #mistakeshappen #whatwouldbobrosssay #happyaccidents #youareok #permissiontomakeamistake #heartfulexpressionspllc #pleasantvilleny #bestselfbestlife #mentalhealthsupport #pleasantvilletherapy #arttherapy #thefeelsarecoming #anxietyhelp #anxiety #depressionsupport #depression #intrusivethoughts #perfectionism #postpartumsupport #whatwouldyourtherapistsay
Ahh @tarabrach and wisdom. 🙌🏻When I read her book “Radical Acceptance: Embracing your life through the Heart of Buddha” so much about emotions really clicked for me. And when it comes to embracing life all that it has to offer us that means embracing the messy, imperfect bits too sit back imagine the sun your face and the feeling of liberation, now take that same feeling and apply to even when things suck, it’s more difficult but possible. There is freedom in our emotions all of them because no one ever died from a feeling just everything they ever did to avoid one here’s to #embracingthesuck 💛✌🏻#radicalacceptance #feelthefeels #fridaymood #imperfection #perfectionist #perfectionism #anxiety #anxietyrelief #eatingdisorderrecovery #addiction #recoveryisworthit #recoverywarriors #letgo #acceptance #selfcompassion #selfworth #foodfreedom #disorderedeating #bodyimage #mindfulness #mindfuleating #meditation #bulimia #anorexia #bingeeating #recovery #therapistlife #fridayfeels
Part I. Преодоление. Долгое время я старалась не фотографироваться. И уж тем более, нигде не светить свои фото. В известных соц сетях нет ни одной моей фотографии. В такой ситуации можно подумать, что есть какая-то проблема во внешности. Это не так. Проблема есть, но она в голове, и называется эта проблема "Перфекционизм". Смотришь на фотку, и мысленно бракуешь: "not ideal not ideal not ideal. В одной из задач по психотерапии перфекционизма значится: "Разрушение иллюзорного представления о себе и достижение способности человека принимать себя таким, какой он есть на самом деле". Вот и отлично. С этого и начнём!) #Калининград #калининградскаяобласть #перфекционизм #красота #фотография #фото #психотерапия #мама #мамадочка #семья #мы #дом #мысли #психология #человек #преодоление #проблема #внешность #kaliningrad #russia #beautiful #ideal #notideal #foto #family #psychology #perfection #perfectionism
One of the most difficult aspects of forgiveness is that “I must heal what someone else broke.” It’s what keeps us from moving forward. We want the offender to “fix it,” or we want a new relationship to disprove the lie that we are unlovable or not worthy of _______. The bitterness of what “they did” is on our side of the fence and the reality is that we have to take charge of our own healing. We have to find a SAFE group of people to grieve with, spill our guts to, receive correction from, receive love and validation from, and to find healing from. We have the power to change the scenery on our side of the fence, to make it greener, regardless if, or when, the offender repents. . #februarychallenge #forgiveness #writeyourlifewithgrace #fruitofthespirit #guidedjournal #leadershipdevelopment #innerbeauty #organizationalleadership #character #vulnerability #pretense #perfectionism #conflict #healthyconflict #shame @growthskills #boundaries @thedailydrcloud @therealstephenarterburn #codependency #peoplepleasing @townsendnow #respect #trust #trustworthy #skeletoncloset #suicide #jesuslovestrippers #jesuslovespornstars #stripchurchla
How many of us fall into the mindset of not doing something because it isn’t “perfect”. Or more importantly we fear not being perfect? Perfection is a facade - we should embrace our mistakes because it means we are out there trying! Our goal is to try to be better than we were yesterday... #quotesdaily #quotestoliveby #empoweringwomen #perfectionism #mistakequotes
this photo is sassy. my message is not. these past few months i have been learning to let go of the chase for perfection. it is hurtful and it is exhausting. by letting go of the chase for perfection, i am letting go of being a people pleaser, letting go of trying to finish all the laundry in one day, letting go of trying to be the perfect wife and friend. INSTEAD I am learning to hold myself to a standard of grace instead of a standard of perfection. I am learning to be kind to myself. I am learning. . . . . . . . #gracenotperfection #gracealone #perfectionist #perfectionism #shereadstruth #mentalhealthjourney #armywife #wifelife #wifelife 💍 #housewife #homebody #laundrytime #makeithappen 💋 #makeithappenbook #laracasey #beliveinyou

Not one of my best #drawing s but one I have been intending to redo in mix media one day. One day... *smirk* I was trying to draw my version of #charon the ferry man that brings you to #hades I know my depiction is not accurate with either #dantesinferno or Greek ancient lore. But I was actually reading the #divinacomedia at the time and also playing the ps3 game ( which was Fricking awesome!) And I remember thinking about makibg a comic style version of the tale but alas : better #artist s than me already pulled that off. . As an #artistsoninstagram or doing #art in general I have a hard time comitting to a project , because i suffer from #perfectionism and it holds me back because if something isn't exactly the Way I like it to be : its not worth mine or your time, in my mind. #instaart #kunstenaar #kunst #madeinbelgium #pendrawing #lines
You know what I am so sick and tired of? I’m so sad and tired of people telling other people that their pain doesn’t matter. Im so sad when I hear about people who tell other people that their pain is “too much” or “too dramatic” or “makes no sense”. ❤️ This, in my mind, is the lowest form of disrespect and it hurts me to know that people’s pain is met with this shaming behavior. ❤️ You see, when people disregard others pain, they are immediately shaming them. They, by default, are telling the person that they are wrong for going through what they are going through. And this, my dear friends is BS. ❤️ Your feelings matter. Your pain matters. Your story matters. You deserve to be heard and held and understood. I really hope you feel that when you are on my page. ❤️ We have some exciting things happening here (news to come) but you can rest assured that I am going to fight for you to feel heard and seen. ❤️💪❤️💪❤️💪❤️💪❤️ Your pain matters. #yourpainmatters - - - - #ocdawareness #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #mindfulnessteacher #harmocd #hocd #compulsion #erp #exposuretherapy #pureocd #cbt #panicdisorder #anxietytherapist #ocdrecovery #anxietyattacks #anxietysucks #panicattack #mentalhealth #panicdisorder #relationshipocd #perfectionism #exposureresponseprevention #intrusivethoughts #pureo #depressionsupport #uncertainty #itsabeautifuldaytodohardthings #wecandohardthings #youranxietytoolkit #cbtschool #ocdtherapist

ABOUT PERFECTIONISM - We all think, we'd must be "perfect". Write the best notes, be thinner than every one else, be the best one in everything. But we're never good enough for ourselves. But we're wrong. It's enough to care for ourselves. We don't have to be perfect, and we are good and enough just in the way we are. Or, to say it in an other way - we are perfect. Of course we have to change things, but we are perfect. You are perfect. Don't put too much pressure on yourself, and care for yourself. That's the most important thing. . #perfectionism #quote #motivation #ed #edrecovery #recovery #anorexiarecovery
Perfect is the enemy of good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The insidious nature of perfectionism is this need to get every last detail in a perfectly straight line, which rarely works. So we end up with unfinished projects, anxiety, paralysis... we want to be perfect but will never, ever get there. Because perfection doesn’t exist. And perfection does not equal happiness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So what, then, do we do? 🤷‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best we can. That’s all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #friyay #tgif #fridaynight #psychology #psychologist #iopsychology #organizationalpsychology #industrialpsychology #businesspsychology #mba #phd #business #finance #leadership #psychologicalsafety #work #teamwork #education #student #lifelonglearner #perfection #perfectionism #doyourbest #justtry
I got my sh*t together 😂😂 This has been on my mind a lot recently. I struggle with perfectionism - would like to be perfect? Hell yes! But the reality is... only The Creator is perfect. Perfectionism is a heavy burden. Luckily I have learned to live up to only my own standards (and I’m keeping the bar low!)

Anyone else hide behind the guise of “perfect”? 🙋🏻‍♀️ I used to hide behind my mask of perfectionism because I was afraid. I was afraid that if people knew who I really was, they would reject me. I was so scared to be vulnerable. And it took me a long time to move away from this way of living. 💕 You know what the biggest step forward for me was??? Believing in myself. That I was ENOUGH. That I was WORTHY. And that I COULD do things that I thought I couldn’t. AND a big realization that “perfect” wasn’t real. 💕 How did I find those things? TIME. Giving myself time every day for things like GRATITUDE, GRACE, JOURNALING, REFLECTION, & MEDITATION. It began with me getting to know myself better. 💕 There is truly nothing better than feeling comfortable and confident in your own skin, free to be who you are.

“That’s not your face, that’s makeup. That’s not how tall you are, those are high heals. Those aren’t your nails, those are gel. That’s not your hair, that’s extensions and dye. Where can I find a real, authentic woman?!” Those were the words of my husband way back when we were dating. . . We are used to the idea of living in a fake world, with filters, editing, staging and behind-the-scenes crews that make life look #magical . . . There’s also something to be said about true self pride (not hubris), self betterment, and a desire for beauty and order! . So where do these two worlds meet? Where do you draw the line between a mask and well placed effort? . Practical. That’s where you draw the line. Is it practical?! . . If it’s practical that means it can actually happen... you can take it from idea to reality. That means it’s pragmatic and realistic, capable of actually happening. . #Practical means effective. It means you pull it out of theory and put it to use. It means that not only can it be successful once but that it’s likely to succeed in REAL circumstances! . . So, looking at these #pantries , which ones are practical for you?! They are all organized. They are all thought out and planned. Some are more beautiful than others. And all are practical. . . Wait, what?! I just heard some of you say “yeah right!!! That’s not realistic at all!” That just means that your reality is different than someone else’s! . . I can see all of these pantries being very successful and practical and beautiful in very different homes for very different people. . . Practicality’s enemy is Perfectionism. Perfectionism is taking a good idea to unhealthy extremes and therefor making it fake, unrealistic and unsustainable. . . Find what is practical FOR YOU, in your reality, in your circumstances. Just as too much clutter causes stress and anxiety, trying to create a “perfect” image that doesn’t align with your reality is just as damaging! . . Be real, be practical. Be unashamedly YOU! . . .

Everyone's body is different, their journey to health is different and their challenges are different. #Repost @counselorkate (@get_repost ) ・・・ BODY DIVERSITY IS REAL AND NEEDS TO BE RECOGNIZED INSTEAD OF PATHOLOGIZED.

When a client has to reschedule, do something that brings you joy (like lattes & journaling for me ☕️ ✍️). . . I’ve been experiencing the equivalent of senioritis in my PhD program over the past couple weeks, so guess what I wrote about today? How I’ve grown as a person and as a professional through the program, and what I could’ve missed out on if I didn’t take this step. Needed to reframe things for myself and it sure did help! The sunshine and light breeze on the front porch of @rosshousecoffee helped too ☀️ wishing all of you a happy Friday!!

Hey, hey! There are those sweet potatoes again!💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you a sweet potato? Or, do you like good ol’ regular white potatoes? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My husband is a good ol’ regular potato kind of guy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Me, well… let’s just say I don’t discriminate between potatoes. I eat them orange or white. Sweet or regular. Fried, baked, or roasted. I will eat them here. I will eat them there. Say, I would eat them anywhere! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, what type of potato do you like most? . #carbsaregood #inbend #oregonbusiness #bendbusiness #bendoregon #centraloregon #oregonbusiness #bendbossbabe #local #makelocalhabit #effectualnutrition #dietitian #nutrition #nofoodrules #norules #dietitianapproved #eathealthy #eatright #reallife #balancednotclean #foodfreedom #health #healthyish #onlinedietitian #mindfulness #loveyourself #perfectionism #perfectionist #recoveringperfectionist

Now that even Cary Grant is not as perfect as Cary Grant you can ease yourself into just being the one you are. The more you are busy fighting and surpressing any negative thought about yourself or others, the less your brain can become busy with joy and pleasure or things you really want to focus on. #Acceptance of a #fear being present at one specific moment in time allows that fear to pass faster than resistance. Give it a go, give your brain more time for things that are more important to you. #anxiety #anxietyrelief #stress #selfhypnosis #perfectionism #negativethinking #carygrant #quotes #loveoldhollywood #hypnotherapybrussels #bruxelles #brussels #hypnotherapy
Nella ricerca di perfezione 🥀 Quanti di voi, come me, soffrono della precisione quasi ossessiva in alcune cose che non vi accontentate mai? E una cosa più positiva o negativa secondo voi? ———————————————— Are you obsessively precise in some aspects of life or quite laid-back about more or less everything? I think 5 years of art school have ruined my ability to ignore details (if it ever existed) and the older I am, the more attentive I become to every tiny thing around me. Do you think it could be positive or just complicates one’s life? ⚖️ ————————————————— А вы страдаете излишним перфекционизмом в определённых моментах жизни? Мне кажется, на почве 5-и лет в художественной школе и почти 3-х в доме критика искусства, у меня развился визуальный перфекционизм, который не даёт мне жить спокойно. Вот на этом фото, например, не хватает витой спинки кресла по левую сторону от столика над ковром, и мне это режет глаз 😖 Случаются с вами такие загоны по вниманию к деталям? Или не паритесь по ерунде?) #macerata #perfectionism #art
We have more sovereignty over our feelings than we might think. ▫️ Some psychologists posit that 40% of our happiness is within our contriol, and only 10% is governed by our life circumstances. ▫️ What feelings do you want to choose? Happiness? Joy? Freedom? Love? ▫️ For my part, one of feelings I want to create most in my life is...

Adding my Etsy shop to my business cards. Not the most professional way, I know, but I have too many left to waste and I want to hand them out tomorrow at the craft market. Nobody said it has to perfect 🙃 That should be my new motto! 😍 . #artsandcrafts #craftmarket #etsy #etsyshop #etsysellersofinstagram #makearteveryday #artistsoninstagram #creativelifehappylife #instaartist #perfectionism #businesscard
Sometimes it’s hard to just be ourselves. We think we need to be perfect to be an inspiration to others. Our perfectionism hurts us and the people around us. All of us miss out on the encouragement we would receive if we just opened up and showed each other our imperfections. Be You. Be an encourager today. 💛 . “Each of us should please our neighbors for their good, to build them up.” -Romans 15:2 . . . #food #foodie #foodstagram #health #healthy #healthylifestyle #inspafood #instafood #instagood #picoftheday #inspiration #encouragement #perfectionism #imperfect #quote
