I’m Meha, your Silk+Sonder creator and I want to wish you all a very happy International Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day is celebrated globally on March 8th to shed light on the cultural, political and socio-economic achievements of women. And at Silk + Sonder, we see it as an opportunity to commemorate what women can achieve when we stay true to who we are and lean on each other for support.
Today I want to dig a little deeper into a topic that we believe is holding us back as women, and one we know resonates with each of you: Perfectionism.
Raise your hand if you've been personally victimized by perfectionism.
🙋♀️ Us too. Over and over again. While giving our best, daily, is something to strive for, perfectionism, on the other hand, gets in the way. It delays our projects, keeps our best ideas from being shared, and holds us back from our true potential.
