Today, I want to talk to you about expectations, consistency, and perfectionism. Also, how we can reach out to community as we struggle with these ideals. You know, that strive for perfection, how to have a constructive internal dialogue, and finally, how to be ok with making mistakes.
I would also like to personally extend an invitation to the Shine Retreat for Women, a beautiful event that is coming up September 27th-29th, 2019. This retreat is for you if you’re needing to build community connection, restore your soul, or just need some dedicated time for yourself.
I’m offering a $50 discount off registration to all listeners of this podcast.
Listen in for more information on the retreat, but first, let’s walk through the 3 steps that will help you learn how to lean into the power of being imperfect, together.
