Thank you as always Kristi for your kind words and support. I am so looking forward to share our conversation later this year.

Good piece today, Kristi. I want to zoom in here:

“It is also important to remember that perfectionism... promises us that if you can do it perfectly, no one can criticise you..”

Great quote, and the funny thing is that, out of the 135 or so posts I've sent out, at least 10 or 15 I've felt were sort of sloppy (intellectually, or not as well written as my normal stuff) are among my best received pieces, and those I spend the most time on trying to get just right... well, let's just say, it's a mixed bag.

There's something to be said for not overthinking things. But I also think the more we can shine a light on some of these sometimes-not-so-pleasant feelings that we all have, the more we take their power away.

Your writing gets better and better every day, and I feel like it's because there is more of you in it. I really enjoyed the whimsy of the chocolate and the microwave piece!

Thanks so much, Kristi! I think you're doing great here. I'm enjoying the peek behind the curtain, and I agree that bringing these things to the light of day takes their power over us away, at least to some measurable degree.
