Hi lovely ones Welcome to Episode 38. I’m honoured to share with you today a conversation that I had with Nikki McCann on her podcast called The Dear Mama Project.

Nikki and I spoke about worthiness and how we define our self worth when we become mothers, and self kindness and self kindness practices that we can integrate into our daily habits to be able to come back to ourselves, especially during the initial periods of motherhood. I loved this conversation, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

In Episode #3, I’m taking on a pesky little thing called perfectionism. We live in a society that constantly tells us that perfection is the goal. We are led to believe that not only is perfection what we should be aiming for, but it’s actually possible to achieve. And if you’re like most of us, these kinds of false pretences will have you reaching for your wallet to purchase everything from weight loss products to money-making gimmicks to cellulite smoothers and guaranteed promises of ever-lasting happiness. But the thing is, perfection is impossible. It’s not there for no reason, though. In this episode we’ll look at the purpose of perfectionism, and the 5 steps you can take to release it.
