I used to dream of being a …history teacher? What you can learn from your past!

We’ve been talking about perfectionism in the Organize Your Life Club on Facebook. While I’ve been reflecting back on when perfectionism used to rule my life, and how that’s changed over the past few years. Realizing that there were
