Do you feel like something is missing from your life?
The sense of emptiness is there every day no matter what you do. You’ve tried filling it with perfection, but that just stresses you out. Success is equivalent to putting a band-aid over a gaping wound. The only thing that temporarily satisfies is happiness, which is like the icing on a cupcake – it’s pretty and light and sweet, but it isn’t meant to sustain you. What your heart really wants is something more substantial…
Perhaps you’ve started digging deeper to find out what that is. Stacks of self-help books. Workshops and retreats. Online courses. Feeling your feelings. Gratitude lists. Positive affirmations. Self-care. Journaling. Mindfulness. Yoga.
You’ve let go of your stressful thoughts countless times, so why do they keep coming back?!?
Because your fears actually serve a purpose, and based on my own experiences with overcoming anxiety, they aren't going to leave you alone until you receive the wisdom they're trying to deliver. What would happen if, rather than running toward the next happiness fix, you sat with your fears, listened to them...and then figured out how to make the translation?
There are many ways to do this. What works for some may not work for others. What's most important is that you find the path that works for you. And when you do, you just might be surprised to discover that your fears will lead you to what you’ve been searching for all along.
Instead of chasing happiness, what if you could naturally experience constant fulfillment in your daily life, regardless of your circumstances?
Welcome to Ever Present Life
My name is Becky Lindstrom and I’m a UC Davis-certified Life Coach. After struggling for years with daily anxiety, I've finally figured out how to make peace with uncertainty, trust in myself, and live the life I've always longed for in my heart. Now, I serve as a compassionate, collaborative partner for those who are ready to embark on their own journey of self-realization.
My mission is to help selfless perfectionists find fulfillment in their daily life.
What's a selfless perfectionist, you ask?
Well, in addition to being a life coach, teacher, and writer, I’m also a highly empathetic (1), naturally selfless (2) perfectionist (3) with a hyper-sensitive inner critic (4).
These are the four traits of selfless perfectionism.
Maybe you can relate to some or all of them? And maybe you’re hoping I’m about to tell you that I can make them magically go away. But here’s the thing – when you fully understand these aspects of yourself, you won’t actually want them to go away.
In fact, once you find the courage to confront your fears about being wired this way, you’ll discover a powerful truth.
Empathy, selflessness, perfectionism, and self-criticism aren’t burdens – they are you're greatest gifts.
Are you ready to receive them?
