squash perfectionism - more self compassion

squash perfectionism – more self compassion

For 2014, I’m describing the things I’m putting into place for my next level of growth as Commitments – not resolutions, not goals and not intentions. That word resonates more with me. It’s about a declaration, followed by real action steps and a plan.

Squash Perfectionism & Grow Self-Compassion

This was already a big push towards the end of 2013 but I’m going to focus even more on this for 2014. Like any other habit, once you start to bring awareness to perfectionism it becomes painfully obvious all the ways it shows up.

Perfection is a prison. I also know that I put myself and hold the key to free myself, too. It will take time to fully break down all those walls but I can tell already what a difference it has made already.

Directly related to that is MORE self-compassion. I almost always show way more compassion towards others than I’ve done towards myself in the past. I’m ready for that to change as well.

What are you committed to putting in place for yourself in 2014 to reclaim your life?
