Overcoming Perfectionism: Studio 5

I love the new February Studio 5 theme is “Live Without Pretending”! We’re challenging women throughout Utah to “get real” about what’s really going on for them and share more of their authentic selves.

While the bible says to “Be ye therefore perfect”, it doesn’t mean to be externally flawless. It means whole, ripe, complete. Perfectionism is about trying to earn love through performance, it’s about being ready and whole in this very moment.

I highly recommend Dr. Brown’s book The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are
