    Hi Mithch: It has been forever since I listened to your podcast First of all I want to thank you. Podcast 358, you are closer than you think you are have revolutionized my life. My used to be perfectionist mindset was again set free.
    1. I just published my book on March 27th and it is huge only that I did not feel satisfied but you helped me to see. So many other accomplishments which caused me to stop and think. 2. Also that I remained calmed and did not loose my cool during a very challenging and confrontational situation. 3. something I want to do big is to continue further in creating an online and podcast on loss, trauma, and grief. Last but not least Finally and I mean finally is acceptance that obstacles and barriers are part of life and whenever you begin something new, therefore, take a chill pill and don’t get angry. Hallelujah
