Welcome to this month’s (May 2018) edition of Perfect Picks, my friend! Each month, I’ll share a roundup of useful resources I’ve come across on the interwebs.


  • practical tips, thought-provoking blog posts, and #allthethings I've been loving lately...

  • … about perfectionism and other topics many perfectionists struggle with

Plus, some fun and entertainment too!

Let’s get to it.


Learn how to create an abundance mindset

“Realizing I was spiraling out of control, I took a break and walked over to my window to look out for a minute. I saw some of my neighbor kids playing in the yard - laughing, yelling, playing make believe and running around like their legs couldn’t stop. That’s when a big fat realization hit me… I wanted to run around and scream and play make-believe… but I feel like I “can’t”.”


How to stop judging yourself

“I had had thousands (millions?) of moments in my life when I was judging myself and this was the first one when I realized I had a choice not to.”


Progress is almost never linear

“Not all goals need to be met; some can simply be released to make room for something more powerful. Progress is almost never linear. Don’t be so hard on yourself.”


Wish you could switch off your people-pleasing toggle? Read this.

“You need to fill up your tank first, to be in a position to look after anybody else. True dat. Think about what your pay-off is. And ask if it's worth it.”

Why you should be doing some dirty work

“This obsession with easy and glamorous and oh how fun has seeped into our consciousness and affected the way we think about our own life path. Our dreams…shouldn’t they just happen? Shouldn’t laying down and envisioning my ideal future be enough? Should I just start this month and have it all figured out by next month? Nope.”


Vulnerability 101: how to stop hiding your work and be seen by all the people who matter

“The parts of yourself that you’re most afraid to show to others will often be the parts that are embraced with the most love.”

I have a tough time with tenderness

“Tenderness means living into the hard places without judging myself for the existence of those places.”


The most destructive thing I’ve ever done…

“The most destructive thing I’ve ever done was believe someone else’s opinion of me. To allow someone else’s perspective, story, and limitations impose on the way I wanted to live. To let someone else’s vision become more important than my own. To offer up my freedom or peace of mind in exchange for approval.”
