Some is Better than None
SOME is better than none. This is one of my most significant mottos both personally and as a therapist. So often, our #allornothing mindset can paralyze us because we think, “if I can’t do a full workout, I just can’t do it at all.” Another statement I often hear is, “if I can’t do it the right way, I just don’t even try because perfect feels way too hard.”
Hi, I’m Lindsay and I’m a recovering perfectionist. I am continually reminding myself that #someisbetterthannone, whether it be a 7 minute workout, a 45 minute meet up with a friend or squeezing in an essential oils bath late at night before bed. When I get out of my own way and #justdoit, even if it’s something SMALL, it leaves me feeling better because I took an action step. That action step leads me closer to my goal - or need - or dream. And then it gains some momentum and brings me a little closer to where I want to be.
When I remember that I always have #choices, my life becomes brighter, lighter and more #empowered. Wholehearted life begins when I exercise my choices and when I get out of my own perfectionistic way. And this is where we truly practice living true to ourselves.
What tools do you use when perfectionism seeks to steal life from you?
I wish you all the juju as you take a step in the direction of your dreams - even if it be small. Because SOME IS BETTER THAN NONE. #youvegotthis #tiuteam
