How many times have i furiously made myself be or look perfect cuz someone might care??? Too many. I used to want everything to be just so and in place- from me to my house and to my family. I remember when I stopped - that was probably one of the most freeing moments in my life!

This one’s for the personal transformation lover + Star Wars fan. (If you MUST skim through, at least read the end - it’s like a warm, cozy hug.) ⁣ ⁣ After listening to one of @iamjimfortin ’s recent podcast episodes, I started to reflect deeper on the idea of perfection. I am a recovering perfectionist since childhood so this “idea” has been a constant companion. I previously used to live entirely from a place of comparison. After all, perfect is in the eye of the beholder; there is no such thing as true perfection. ❌ “Perfect” is a comparative word - it is defined differently by everyone through comparison and based on the beholder’s perception of life. ⁣ ⁣ Don’t get caught in the perfection trap! And if you do, remember that the person you’re comparing yourself against is also human and also experiences doubt and worry. We’re all at different points in our timeline and have different lessons to experience and grow through. 🕺🏼💃 Take a little movement to shake things up and restore the beautiful vitality that is constantly yearning to flow through you. Get out into nature and see a different perspective. Tune into your breathing for just a moment to take a mindful breath, which simply means noticing the feeling and movements in your body associated with the air flowing in and out. Take a moment to be grateful for all you have. If you feel you have nothing else, realize that not everyone received the opportunity to keep breathing today. ⁣ ⁣ If you remember nothing else of this post, plase remember the *feeling* of this statement: ✨ Your heart and your life is not any less (or any more) valuable or worthy than anyone else on this planet. ♥️ And perfection doesn’t exist, so just find what makes you feel alive and find a way to get damn thing done with a little heart. ✨ “Done is better than perfect.”

Today I was sharing with my coach the idea I wrote about in my story this morning. ⁣ ⁣ ICYMI:⁣ I shared a picture of myself with the "old" filter in the FaceApp and said I'm considering developing a practice around this altered photo--where I gaze into my future self's eyes and let myself think about what I hope for her... ⁣ What I hope she will see, do, learn, embrace, release herself from between now and then.⁣ ⁣ What she will have accomplished. How she will have grown. How I hope she will feel about herself and her life.⁣ ⁣ As I shared, we explored what I thought about when I looked at her, what I imagined she was thinking and feeling based on her expression.⁣ ⁣ I said that her eyes looked kind and wise and soft. That she looked grateful and content-- accepting of herself and life. ⁣ ⁣ Then the tears came as I said, "but those are *my* eyes!I took that photo a few months ago!"⁣ ⁣ A breath.⁣ ⁣ I realized I wasn't projecting into the future at all. I was seeing those things in the eyes of my current self.⁣ That at the moment of the photo, I was connected to a sense of okayness. ⁣ This doesn't mean I always feel accepting and at peace with myself.⁣ ⁣ But it did remind me (with photographic evidence!!) that this way I long to feel is a way I already feel, this person I want to grow into, is someone I already am--some of the time. ⁣ ⁣ As you think about your goals, wishes, dreams, and longings, is it possible some of who you wish to be, you already ARE--right now? ⁣ If you set aside perfection, can you see the tiniest seed of the thing?? ⁣ ⁣ I think the process of noticing this (or even just searching for it) can drop us into the present and into be perhaps a truer truth of our lives. ⁣ And paying attention to the tiny ways that what we want is already here, can help it grow. 🌱 ⁣ If this resonates and you feel like sharing... I'd love to hear about something you want to cultivate in your life or your being that you catch glimpses from from time to time. ✌️💙

30+ hours of work in the last 4 days = a "treat yo self" afternoon🛍 || Something to know about me is I tend to be harder on myself than what is called for. When it comes to work and my responsibilities, I tend to become a perfectionist. I have standards that at times are not realistic and so when I can't reach them, I get frustrated with myself. This morning, it got to a point where i was making small mistakes and i just wanted to give up. I've worked my butt off to get to where I am in life and even to gain the respect I have at work. I don't like to disappoint myself, and especially others. Here is the thing, I'm not perfect. No one is perfect. And that is something I know most may struggle with. It is okay to make mistakes because it is a chance to grow and learn. Learn what to do and how to be realistic with expectation. It's been a long week, but it ain't done yet. Neither am I!😁 (wait did that make sense?...yeah we will go with that) ~ Love ya all, byeeeeee!☺️✌🏽 • • #blessed #thankful #jesus #christian #christiangal #perfectionist #imnotperfect #life #blogger #columbusblogger #citygirl #columbusmodel #shopping #clearance #me #cute #model #lifelessons #lifestyleblogger #denim #style #stylists #workhardplayhard #struggleisreal #treatyoself #blackgirlmagic #wednesday #workday #bossbabe

Confidence is a...wait for it...SKILL. 🤯 - I remember being at a big youth group camping trip and being picked to pray for a meal - out loud - in front of everyone - and totally bombing it and embarrassing myself. I’ve always been shy and lacked confidence. No one said a word to be about the prayer bomb, but that reinforced a lack of self confidence that I believed was part of my identity. I didn’t think that could change. - - Fast forward 15 years and I’m speaking on team calls and leading a group of amazing people. I’ve learned that confidence is not something you’re born with. You can MAKE it. and yes I’ve worked hard to get to a place where I feel confident physically, but more importantly I’m confident in the woman I’m becoming. Thanks to the community I surround myself with and the personal development that goes along with that, I can truly say I’m proud of this girl. 💛 Proud to be a part of a movement that makes a difference and paves the way for girls everywhere to recognize their self worth and self confidence. 💕✨

Anyone else struggle with self-confidence? 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ . Christina (name changed) is a new dietitian who enrolled in my 1:1 coaching because she struggled with a lack of focus and confidence as a dietitian. She was having a hard time believing in herself, and she doubted whether or not she truly had what it takes to be a Nutrition Expert, which felt discouraging. I guided Christina through my three step framework, and by the end of it, she reflected: "At first I thought the program would mainly focus only on being a dietitian and bettering yourself whether it was through counseling, professionalism, etc. However, Jessica doesn't only focus primarily on being a dietitian but she helps you to focus on being yourself first to help you on your journey to being a better dietitian." That's the thing, we are all people first and dietitians second, and if we don't first learn to believe in ourselves and prioritize ourselves, we will never feel confident as dietitians, either. Christina learned that through my program and is now thriving in her dietitian job and personal life with less stress and more confidence! If you're ready to start feeling confident personally and professionally, apply now for my Empowering Dietitians 1:1 Coaching Program (⭐link in bio⭐)! I use a simple, proven three step framework to help dietitians like you and Christina focus your time and energy, prioritize your self care, and build confidence - so that you can design the life you truly want for yourself inside and outside of your dietitian job! . . . . . #registereddietitiannutritionist #dietitiansofinstagram #dietitians #dietitiansofig #lifecoachforwomen #rdchat #dietitianapproved #selfdevelopmentjourney #girlbosstips #growfromit #healthyrevolution #nutritionmission #confidencecoaching #perfectionist #girlbossmovement #intuitiveliving #trustinyourself #girlbossing #typeapersonality #dieteticintern #dietetics #dietitianlife #rdapproved #perfectionistproblems #lifecoachingforwomen #girlbosslife #girlbossmoment #dietitian #futuredietitian #nutritionstudent

This is very relevant to me as a perfectionist and someone with major food and environmental anxieties. Sometimes (today) out of nowhere I’ll be terrified to eat perfectly good food because I’m convinced something is wrong with it. As someone who loves to cook and has children, this is devastating and frustrating. It’s not OK for me to be like this, but sometimes I can play it super safe and eat something that I feel comfortable with. Yes, I alter my lifestyle for today but I have to tell myself it’s OK because sometimes that is better than pushing myself and having a panic attack later because “I ate that” and then feeling guilty for having anxiety. . There are great positive messages out there telling you not to let anxiety win, which is great! But honestly, if you’re a perfectionist like me, this is very stressful and to me I like knowing I don’t have to force myself. It’s OK. . . . . #hypocondriac #anxietywarrior #anxietyfighter #foodanxiety #perfectionist #perfectionists #itsokaynottobeokay #itsok

People always expect a great deal for me. People often say that, i am an intellectual for some reason. I often have heard the statements "i wish my son was more like you" or "i wish i had a brain that works like yours does". Which isnt something that i'm proud of. And my answer always stays the same. Only i know what i had to do, to get where i stand today. Only i know the life i have had, and only i know the shit that is wrong with me. Expectations lead to disappointments. Its my screwed up mind, and decisions that made me who i am today. Be something more. Be someone better🖤. #hnm #dapper #portraitphotography #photography #bettertimes #undercut #animehair #perfectionist #hippie #hippiestyle #wanderlust #personalblog #tissot

“I’m a textbook overthinker.” -Kevin Malone, The Office I’m actually a RECOVERING perfectionist. In past years I leaned on perfectionism out of fear. I was terrified of making mistakes because of what I thought mistakes said about me as a person. My self worth hinged on being absolutely flawless at all times. The thing is - you need to make mistakes to grow. Failure is so important. How else are you going to learn, grow, and blossom? Things don’t always need to have a perfectly laid out plan. Having the “perfect” website, curated social media presence, or life will not lead you to success. Getting out there and executing will. You will screw up along the way. But that’s okay. No successful person got to where they are riding on a cloud of being perfect. They DID get there by practicing self awareness, doubling down on their strengths, and executing! #thethoughtfulmarketer . . . . . #mindset #mindsetiseverything #progressnotperfection #makepositivitylouder #positivevibes #perfectionist #frederickmd #downtownfrederick #downtownfrederickmd #stopoverthinking #overthinking #stepintoyourpower #empoweryourself #womenempoweringwomen #pursuehappy #selfaware #selfawareness #womeninbiz #filipinabusinessowner #womanownedbusiness #doyourthing #beauthentic

Whatever you make, no matter how it turns out, you are still amazing! You are enough just as you are. Let the creativity lead the way and DO NOT JUDGE yourself. I’ve talked badly to myself through my whole project and couldn’t even finish it... of course those projects failed. Of course I felt like crap afterwards. I’ve also talked to myself like I would to my best friend and the without fail those projects have turned out amazing beyond words. I produce my BEST work when I am kind to myself.

The not-good-enough “good” from the previous post was a reject from this bit - which is funny and yet more ironic because... Well, give it a scroll. I’ve been thinking a lot about my tendency to either go super freakin deep, blistering 100% effort, or just... do nothing at all. 0%. I am not great at the middle modes. I’ve never really recognised this so clearly before... And I think it might be super important. I burn so hot and then I burn out, because I feel like absolutely everything deserves my best effort if I am going to do it at all, but the fact is, that’s not sustainable. And really, it’s not necessary. It doesn’t need to be hot floodlights or darkness. A sweet little desk lamp does the trick sometimes, you know? Sure, some things warrant your best effort, but for lotsa things, 30-60% effort, energy, and possible time, is actually lovely. ✨ Anyway. I’m in the middle of a super busy week, and just thinking on this has kinda saved my mental health and also give me a chance to invest the effort where it matters. Honestly, Alida won’t actually care if her cake is from a box. No, I don’t have to desperately cycle her between her nursery goodbye party and dance class, she can choose one. Hotdogs and carrot sticks will do, on occasion. I CAN finish my paperwork while on vacation, if needed. No, I don’t need to craft something magical into the wee hours; thoughtful cards make perfectly nice teacher gifts. And so on. 💛 . . . #middlemode #realtalk #momlife #motherhood #perfectionist #illustration #illustratorlife #cutpaper #papercutting #goodenough #littlestoriesofmylife

INFJ’s are super passionate individuals that often can’t differentiate someone rejecting an idea from someone rejecting them. I got to the point I wouldn’t share my thoughts with other people out of fear they would criticize me. INFJ’s are our own worst critics, so when we put ourselves out there we have thought through every possibility and our initial reaction to criticism is anger, hurt, rejection and ultimately a battle in our minds of feeling like we aren’t enough. It’s so important for INFJ’s to have a healthy environment with their partners and with loved ones to feel like they can share themselves without feeling rejected. #infj #infjpersonality #infjproblems #introvert #passionate #sensitive #highlysensitiveperson #empath #perfectionist #criticism #rejection #mentalhealth #introvertproblems

Can you believe this is my first post on here in over a month? 😱⁣ ⁣ ⁣ And how ironic is it that I had this one quote ready to go few weeks ago and now it feels more relevant than ever.⁣ ⁣ For example, for the last 5 weeks the story that I have been telling myself is that I did not have time to put out quality content for my audience, which is why it was better not to post anything at all.⁣ ⁣ In reality I know that my perfectionist mindset got the best of me, which is why from now on I want to post content which is not perfect, sometimes not planned, content that might not make my feed look symmetrical and pretty, but content that MATTERS - a message to YOU. 💫⁣ ⁣ The only thing I can promise to offer you on this feed (and soon on my website) is honesty and a no BS approach to making your life easier and being your best self. No judgement, only a practical approach to living life on your terms, whatever life situation you're in.⁣ ⁣ I'm here for you. ⁣ ⁣ So let's start then. ⁣ ⁣ Tell me, what story have you been telling yourself lately? And what do you think is behind it ?

Hi, I'm Suzy and I'm a recovering perfectionist.⁠ ⁠ Perfectionism sucks doesn't it?⁠ ⁠ The overwhelm, the anxiety, the self-doubt... not to mention the total exhaustion it merrily doses out.⁠ ⁠ Today I had to make a decision. The decision to allow myself to drop the ball and not hit every single goal and deadline I've set for myself and this little business over the next few weeks.⁠ ⁠ You see, this time next week half of my worldly possessions will be on a ship to Cyprus and the other half in some mystery storage container somewhere.⁠ ⁠ I'll have no office, no broadband, and well, no home for a week and a half⁠ ⁠ And then my little family and I will be picked up and dropped 2000 miles away and shown to our new home and then wait another few weeks for our furniture etc to arrive.⁠ ⁠ Somehow in the bizarre workings of my mind, I didn't want the move to affect business at all.⁠ ⁠ I'm no stranger to moving, this will be our 5th move in 8 years, and my 16th move in total (spot the Air Force kid and now RAF wife!).⁠ ⁠ So I assumed, as always, I'd have everything under control and allow for the usual 2-3 days unsettled period before jumping straight into business mode again... but turns out an international move is a whole new ball game of chaos!⁠ ⁠ So with that lovely lady, to save my sanity from totally cracking up, I'm allowing myself to not strive for perfection and not "do it all", all of the time... especially not for the next few weeks.⁠ ⁠ I'll still be here, I'll still be checking in... but posts might be few and far between and my replies might not be instant.⁠ There won't be any product launches, webinars or regular Q&A sessions, but I'll still be here.⁠ ⁠ I'll be here enjoying this crazy new chapter to our lives and enjoying dropping the ball... or maybe actually playing with it with my girls on the beach!⁠ ⁠ I've got a BIG list of very exciting plans for this beloved business of mine, and I CAN'T wait to dive in as soon as we're settled again.⁠ ⁠ Until then my lovelies... see you around 😎⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Truth: I sometimes don’t post pictures because I compare them to our wedding photos...or other people’s photos... and comparison has stolen some joy in sharing my moments. . The reality is, our wedding photos were the bomb because @howl.photography is a freaking amazing photographer. . I, on the other hand, seem to have forgotten how to take even 1 good selfie out of 100. And @austinwfuller is a great photographer, BUT I don’t want my husband to feel like an #instagramhusband . PLUS I’ve had beautiful moments with unexplainable joy waaaaaay before anyone was ever capturing these beautiful moments on Instagram... . SO.. I don’t need the beauty of a picture to determine the beauty of the moment. Ever. Again. . . (Swipe to see my photography skills.) . . All this to say, if this were a competition for most photogenic/best Instagram/etc, I respectfully resign. I will, however, keep using @howl.photography as my photographer and throwing those pictures into the competition when possible.😂 😍 . Until then, lower your expectations of my posts because my #enneagram1 self is ready to admit— I cannot handle “Instagram perfect” standards. 😋😘💕 XOXO, The 30 year old, Not-So-Millennial. . . #enneagram #presentoverperfect #perfectionist #weddingphotography #selfiegame #truthhurts #comparisonisthethiefofjoy #realnotperfect

In what area of life are you most likely to be a perfectionist? . Side note— perfectionism is more about striving to avoid failure than anything else. . For me, I’ve never really thought of myself as a “perfectionist,” but reading this morning I had one of those moments where suddenly someone shines a light on something you were ignoring in the shadows... . I was always a “lazy A” student. It didn’t take a lot of effort to make the grades. Socializing was always harder, so I didn’t do a lot of it. But I’ve always done what was expected of me, and tried to do it well. . There lies my perfectionism. I want to make everyone else proud. I want to excel and live up to expectations. Even if they aren’t MY expectations. . Anyone feel me? . But here’s what happens—I try to do all the things, then I burn out and crash. This past weekend was one of my burnout moments. And as I sat on the couch crying pretty uncontrollably over all the things I’d failed to do, my husband said to me, “You are 7 months pregnant. Why do you think you have to do that, raise our toddler, and try to work a bunch of jobs?” . Um...because that’s what everyone wants me to do? Except apparently, it’s not. Here I am, striving to do all these things at warp speed because I think HE wants me to, when in reality he’s wondering why I’m driving myself nuts. . Expectations are my vice. And it’s becoming clearer and clearer that I’m making a lot of them up. So, this week I settled myself, took a deep breath, and re-evaluated. The dreams haven’t changed, but I’m working smarter, not harder. And it already feels better. . If you’re ready to do the same, I’ve got 4 spots in my new mentorship. Be your own boss, set your own expectations, and let’s cheer each other on. 💕 Link in bio if that’s you!

Your worry is a prayer. For so long I was exhausted just THINKING! I wanted to know ALL of the information before I could make a decision and if things changed it would paralyze me. I wanted to make sure that everything was perfect. I would put so much time into making sure everything was perfect that I hardly enjoyed the process or event. I also would become attached to specific expectations around my plans and if things got altered it freaked me out. I couldn't move forward naturally. It was hard to let go of my plan that I spent so much time creating, analyzing, and had attached myself to. Dissociating from this worry, limited thinking and anxiety has allowed myself to recondition my beliefs and transform my life.
