Launch! And the dangers of perfectionism.

Here it is, my very first blog post on my new website. I could not be more excited to have this space to share the tools for creating a rich and meaningful life!

I debated what to write in this space. As a perfectionist in recovery, I cope with the tendency to spend obscene amounts of time making decisions like this. Should I use my very first blog post to provide you an outline of how to start feeling better? Perhaps an article review? Reflections on new research? 

Do you want to guess how long I spent considering these questions and their answers?

Thankfully, it was less time than I would have spent in the past. Maybe you have similar thoughts that prevent you from reaching your own greatness. Perhaps you can relate to sensing that you have something amazing to contribute to the world, but an overwhelming fear that it won't be good enough. I am so glad to have found some tools to quiet all the worry and anxiety about doing The Perfect Thing. Because now I can share all of this with you. I can release the worry and use my brain space for other things, things that truly matter to me. My family, my dog, my work, spending time outdoors. 

So, instead of an outline of how to start feeling better right away (coming soon!), or a review of current research, I'm starting off my website with a look into my own anxious mind. If you can relate to any of this, and want to find your way to the other side, check out my next blog post for some quick tips to reset your mind. Or, reach out and connect personally. I would love to hear from you.
