Soul Talks are heart-felt conversations on topics we care about with people we respect, value and feel connection with! They can be conversations where we learn something, express deeply held beliefs or just explore thoughts and exchange perspectives. When we connect in a meaningful way it always nurtures the soul! I will be posting such conversations here on a regular basis and encourage you to comment or add your perspective! We all have a voice and when we share honestly we recognize the connections to our humanity!
Perfectionism - Being Beautifully Imperfect!
We live in a world where being perfect or fitting a perconceived mold is ingrained in us from a very early age and most of us fall into the trap of trying to reach that preconceived and unreal ideal. For many, it becomes an obsession that really takes us away from who we are, as uniquely imperfect and fabulous individuals and sets us squarely on a journey to a destination we can never attain. When we become obsessed with perfection it affects our self-worth on a deep level and distracts us from our brilliance. Perfectionism is different from the pursuit of excellence or self-improvement which can be a healthy desire to constantly learn and grow. That pursuit stems from deep self-love and nurturing and not from fear or the "I'm not enough" feelings behind perfectionism. How do we get off the perfectionism roller-coaster and shine our true light from within? I recently interviewed Michelle Wong, Leadership Coach and founder of The Non-Linear Path on "Embrace Change with Kate" about Self-Care (Dec. 17, 2018 - "Self-Care is Key to Vibrant Health!") and the subject of Perfectionism came up. Michelle & I thought it deserved some atttention, so we decided to have a conversation about it. Listen to our conversation below and decide what you think. Do suffer from Perfectionism? Is it time to let go of perfectionism and be beautifully imperfect? Find Michelle Wong at www.thenonlinearpath.com or on Instagram @michellewong.xo. Listen to Embrace change with Kate every Monday, 11:00 AM PDT.

Walk the Talk - Be True to Yourself!
I believe it's important to set an example and be true to those values that you espouse to possess, in whatever you are doing! I can tell you from personal experience, one thing that will discourage me from supporting a business, being part of a group, organization, cause or almost anything else is when things seem out of alignment. This is even true in my personal relationships. If you say one thing and do another, I will loose interest fast. It is too confusing and not worth investing my time and energy. As my first video blog (vlog), I thought it was important to start with a topic I felt strongly about and set the tone for these talks. A friend mentioned it to me recently and I knew I had to have this talk with her. I'll be talking with Dr. Nancy De Andrade, Psychologist & Holistic Transformational Coach. To find out more about Dr. Nancy, go to the Gallery of Guests page and click on her photo or go to her website - nancydeandrade.com. She was a guest on my radio show on Dec. 24, 2018 at 11:00 AM for "The Spirit of Giving". (check out the podcast) and again on March 4, 2019 for "The Subtle Energy of Self-Worth & It's Powerful Impact!" Check out our Soul Talk and see what you think. Listen to "Embrace Change with Kate" on Monday's at 11:00 AM PDT or catch the podcasts on your own time. All of my shows focus on "Embracing Change" and mind, body, spirit wellness. I aspire in all that I do to "Walk the Talk" and be true to myself!
