I enjoy today’s walk around the park and decide to smile at what I have instead of mourning for what might have been.
Listener Sandy screws her courage to the sticking place and calls the Bravery Hotline to give us some great tips and thoughts about perfectionism and how to treat ourselves kindly. I keep my promise to post my bikini photo, and this triggers me to share my emotional story about how disappointed I was in this result. Now? I would wear this bikini in public if I looked like this. Expectations can trigger unfounded disappointment and I muse about how we can combat this.
Sandy as a girl with the squirrel. She uses this photo as an anchor to remember to be kind to herself as she would to this small child.

Episode 26, where I describe how my perfectionism almost triggered a binge, and where I made my promise to post my bikini photo.
