Everyone loved it the first time Cookie was on the show back in May 2014. I had to bring her back to ask her thoughts about perfectionism and how it tied into eating challenges and what we can start to do about it. She’s amazing. You’re going to love this conversation!
They discuss what prompted Laurie to start her podcast and the role that being a perfectionist has had in her life and her struggles with overeating.
Alen Standish talks about being a perfectionist and discusses procrastination, shame, connection and his own recent challenges with them all. He also talks about Brené Brown’s wonderful insights into these challenges and shares how he’s been applying them in his life.
It’s been super busy here in the Standish household. We’ve recently had a few items my wife had to help with out of town on her side of the family that leaves me at home with the boys all alone. Since school is out for summer and baseball tournaments and league play are at fever pitch I’ve been a little busier than usual and struggle with keeping up.
BTW – I’m amazed at how much my wife does for us here that I sometimes take for granted. OMG! Love you Babe!
