[00:00:00] Dawn Calvinisti: Wow, it's been an entire year since the Imperfection in Progress podcast began, and I really hope that you've enjoyed the dozens of amazing women guests that are shared with you on the show. I'm Dawn Calvinisti, and when I set out to make this podcast, the focus was really on helping other women who relate to people pleasing, perfectionism, and procrastination.

And I really just wanted you to know that you're not alone, and we've all been there.

Also, relating to one or all of these three P's doesn't mean that you can't be successful or reach your goals or be an amazing person. Actually, all of us have these things in our lives. I've struggled with all of them. Some people struggle more with one than another. But we've all been there. And the Imperfection in Progress community is really about understanding that you have strengths, and you have weaknesses, and so do I, and so does your neighbor, your coworker, your sister in law, your favorite TikTok influencer.

None of us have got it all together. So, as we kick off another year or another season, I thought we'd pull together a new topic each month where we can improve ourselves and our lives. So notice here, I'm saying improve, right? Not perfect, because that's the goal. But I also want you to do it for you and not for others.

And to actually be excited about making changes or reaching for something new. Because if you don't really want it for you, then of course procrastination is going to kick in, right? We're going to put it off. I know, I was a people pleaser for years and at the end of it all, I wondered why was I living someone else's life?

So for the next three months, I have some amazing women guests sharing on topics I think you'll really get excited about. January, we're going to be covering our health. And by health, I mean physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, the whole person. As I often say, many times we're at the bottom of our to do list, or even off the list completely.

And that includes in the area of our health. We're going to discuss financial health, the freedom of anti dieting, the importance of real sleep, and so much more. I'm so excited to kick the year off with this super important area of our lives. And then in February, the month of love, we're diving into relationships of all sorts and self care.

And we're going deep. You'll learn about your relationship with yourself, the most important relationship of all. We'll also look at vulnerability, a word that often makes people run when it comes to relationships. And we're also discussing the types of self care and how we can feel more fully nourished by really taking care of these areas.

And then in March, we have an incredible lineup of women sharing on work life balance. It's a bit of a mystery to most women, but it's so highly desired. This will deal with guilt, burnout, family, being a mompreneur, and many other important areas of our lives, including whether balance really exists. I can't wait to share these incredible interviews with you.

I know as I speak with each of my guests, I changed by practicing what they teach, and I hope you too will find their wisdom and honesty a source of encouragement and motivation as you go about your life. 

 As a special edition this year, we're kicking off each week with the Monday Moment. This is a short 5 to 10 minute episode with the guests that will be speaking on our Wednesday interview. These will release every Monday. And it's an opportunity for you to get a sneak peek into who our guests will be. Most of these Monday Moments are a little more of a deep dive into a specific area that we will be touching on on the Wednesday.

I hope you enjoy this special addition to the podcast.
