Greetings!

Do you ever feel like you'll never be good enough? Are you setting unrealistic goals for yourself by expecting perfection?

Perfectionism robs us of enjoyment and peace. The only way to overcome the endless (and impossible) quest for perfection is to learn to accept yourself-- flaws and all. My latest article talks about the power of a daily practice such as meditation or journaling to help you learn to accept and appreciate "what is":

"Acceptance - The Antidote to Perfectionism"
Perfection is a myth that poisons our sense of self-worth and satisfaction. When we practice acceptance, we can learn to appreciate the process of growth and value what we already are.

I would love to hear how you deal with perfectionism in yourself, either in the forum or in response to this email message.

Please pass this message along to family and friends who might benefit from this and the other resources at BellaOnline. Thanks!
