Y ou didn't have to say AMEN so loud. No this isn't a blog about every humiliating thing I have ever done. That wouldn't be a blog that would be a book. This is a story about my journey from crazy to calm. I will admit that I am a reformed(ing)(ish) perfectionist. But starting this journey wasn't easy for me. It started with one question. Why? "Why?" is a question that can make you defensive. Why did you do this? Why did you do that? So asking a perfectionist the "Why?" question can be a direct threat to their existence. They might think that the wrong answer would suddenly make them vanish into thin air. Drastic? Maybe - but true none-the-less. Most people think that perfectionists hate everyone. Not true. Perfectionists love people. In fact, they may love them too much. A perfectionist performs for the praises of others. Without that praise, they will never feel, "perfect". Praise gives them a sense

When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. But how do you do that? You see, for most of my life, I just ate the lemons. I didn't know how to make lemonade. So here is my recipe. #1 - Admit you have a lemon. - Denial never makes a lemon sweet. If life has knocked you down a notch or two - admit it. Some people might find this disturbing, but be transparent. In the long run, you will surround yourself with people who will help you. #2 - Don't ignore the lemon. - Ever let a lemon rot? It is disgusting and it stinks! Ignoring the obvious only delays and complicates your lemonade later. #3 - Do not give the lemon to someone else. - Blaming someone else for your own problems doesn't solve anything. If you try, do not be surprised if they return your lemons at a high rate of speed. #4 - Find someone who has sipped their lemonade. - If you don't know what to do, find someone who does. There are people who have been where you are. Ask for their help.
