I want perfection and I want it now!

Where does this idea come from?!  And why is our worst case of perfectionism usually focused on ourselves, or those closest to us.  People, in other words.  Non-perfect beings.

Dedicated to the Ones I Love

Traipsing around the United States meeting twenty inspirational women, each with an incredible story… well, there’s nothing better really.  We ate, we drank, we talked, we laughed, we hung out, we inspired, and then we did it all over again.  So here’s to all of you – thank you from the bottom of my heart….

You must learn how to criticise properly

Too many people do not criticise well.  Now, don’t start saying “well, we shouldn’t criticise at all” – totally, we should criticise!  But there’s a way to do it properly.  (Yes, there is an ‘s’ in criticise.)
