Pop quiz, fam!
True or false: The only limits on our potential are the ones we place on ourselves.
Mark me down for a big ol’ TRUE over here! 🙋♀️✅
Needy. Let that word sit with you for a minute. What images, memories, connotations, and/or feelings does it bring up? Probably not great ones, amirite? 😬 Well, today’s guest, Mara Glatzel. is on a mission to help us reclaim neediness and empower us to start tending to our own needs through self-responsibility, self-trust, and self-love.
Paleo, keto, vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, Whole30, AIP, etc… If you’re anything like us, you’ve gravitated toward the external structure of a prescribed diet or way of eating more times than you can count. As perfectionists, we’re excellent rule followers with a high desire for control, and we often looooove externally imposed structure.
We are so excited to introduce this fam to another inspiring community and the visionary behind it, Ashley Beaudin of The Imperfect Boss. Ashley joins us on the podcast today to support the mission of making imperfection normal and inspiring tens of thousands of creative women to grow their confidence.
We are about to have an experience together — a deeply nourishing, calming, and grounding experience — as Ashley leads us through her meditative morning routine. This interactive morning routine has a little bit of everything — meditation, movement, gratitude, abundance, journaling, and so much more.
Today’s guest has figured out the secret sauce for turning perfectionism into a force for good in her life and in the world without letting herself be defined by it. We are so excited to introduce you to OG Eff Perfect fam member and inspiration in human form, Leslie Kuny of West Coast Leslie Designs.
You know how when a famous, rich, and/or powerful person is odd, they’re often described as eccentric, whereas an average person with exactly the same habits might be described as weird or strange? Well, our theory is that when we like our perceived imperfections or they don’t bother us too much, we describe them as quirks or idiosyncrasies instead of imperfections or flaws. Same exact thing with a different name and a completely different meaning, energy, and connotation.
You may have missed it, fam, but we recently passed Quitters’ Day, the day about two weeks into January when it’s said that most people quit their resolutions for the new year. So, we figured this was the ideal time to talk about why we’re quitters — and proud of it. We are all about quitting things that aren’t working for us, especially soul-sucking resolutions based on pushing and striving.
Today, we are so excited to highlight a topic we touch on often, the intersection of perfectionism and mental health, and we’ve brought in expert help in the form of Dr. Ghazal Ghaysar, Clinical Forensic Psychologist and Director of Clinical Communication of OOTify, a mental health marketplace powered by technology, content, and connection. Join us as we endeavor to create positive community and erase stigma around mental health.
Well, fam, we made it! Here we are, on the very last day of 2018, and there’s no way we’d rather spend it than with you. 🥳 Welcome to part one of our two part series reviewing the year that was and planning for the year to come. Let’s begin by taking stock of all the goodness and learning lessons of the past year to help us make the most of the next one.
