Being a Perfectiony Control Freak

Being a Perfectiony Control Freak

Most of social media is all about displaying your highlights showreel and showing everyone how f’n awesome your life is. You could be crying on the floor with your 15 cats while simultaneously posting a photo of yourself with half a t-shirt on (I believe some call it a crop top) pouting into the mirror… read more…

Should We Break Up Or Get Married?

Should We Break Up Or Get Married?

Bloody Good Chap and I started out with very different views of relationships. My parents split up when I was a wee one, (might I add that it was a very good thing for everyone involved!), so I find myself a bit blasé about seriously long term relationships – I think it’s possible, but not… read more…

Are you constantly over-thinking, over-analysing?

Are you constantly over-thinking, over-analysing?

Are you constantly over-thinking? You open fifty tabs in 2 minutes while your mind runs around shouting in your ear like a drunken monkey? Can monkeys shout?

What should I do with my life?

What should I do with my life?

It wasn’t so long ago that I was pelted with worry on a daily basis. What should I do next in life? Was I doing the right thing? Why didn’t I feel fulfilled? What did that person over there think of me? (Check reflection in window – Does my hair look okay?) As a perfectionist… read more…

Gidday, I'm Andrea

I'm a mindfulness advisor and former cynical pessimist.

I used to be an awkward, pessimistic, mediocrely happy overachiever.

Life looked good on the outside, but on the inside things were average.

I was indecisive, I didn't know what to do with my life, I self-sabotaged the hell out of my relationships.

I had a feeling I was going to keep f-ing things up for myself unless something radical changed.
