It’s a super windy day here in Charleston and I’m cracking up while I type this to you.
I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Alex Terranova on the Dream Mason Podcast. When we recorded it, I had just returned from our hurrication. He and I chatted about how life is kinda like a wild hurricane.
Now, here I am again with a tropical storm outside, making’ the most of it.
I’m thinking about you and wondering where you’re at in life. Do you feel like you’re on cruise control, or like you’re on a wild ass hamster wheel trying to keep up; or maybe somewhere in between?
Whatever you’re experiencing, I want to share a few stories with you about my lowest points, how I got out of them (hint-you can use the exact same tools I share in this pod, no matter what’s going on in your life) and why I believe perfection is just a sexy word for fear.
I take the deep dive in sharing why I think we all need to stop striving for perfection and start embracing our purpose.
You’ll hear a lot about how my rebellious spirit actually saved my life and why I became obsessed with helping others. If you’re a perfectionist or a recovering one, I have a strong feeling you’ll dig it.
Here’s what Alex has to say about it,
Something I love about Ashley is that she’s just real, open, honest and vulnerable and willingly puts her process on loud speaker.
Ashley and I discuss:
-Overcoming an eating disorder and her personal experiences battling perfectionism,
-Societal expectations and how perfectionism is formed in the masculine and feminine,
-Recognizing that while we can’t control everything we can always control our response,
-That we all have the power to choose our thoughts,
-How to develop self trust,
-Being in service versus getting it right,
-And being aware of what we are arguing for in our conversations with others.
