Welcome to my blog! Before I go into the title of this post, I want to introduce myself. My name is Annie Schmidt and I am a mental health practitioner in Omaha, Nebraska. In my practice, I help individuals cope with anxiety, loss, depression and many other issues. I have found that my purpose in life is to help people reduce their suffering any way I can.

Now, to the title of this blog. I and many others struggle with trying to be “perfect”. We’ve all heard people say, “there’s no such thing as perfection.” Even if we know this intellectually, we cannot fully embrace this philosophically. We continue to strive for that unknown that is perfection.

This is my first blog site, first time formatting and managing my own website and first time starting private practice. I want everything to be perfect and give that fantastic first impression, despite not having prior experience. But the truth is, there is no such thing as perfect and as the saying goes, “there’s a first time for everything”.

So, as I continue to blog, I hope you will forgive my miserable grammar and punctuation, my quirky sense of humor and the evolution of myself and this blog and let’s be perfectly imperfect together!

Speaking of Imperfect…

Hello again! In my first post, I spoke about allowing ourselves to be imperfect, because we all are. The problem is, I strive for perfection! It’s a self-defeating goal, because there is no such thing. My goal with this website is to blog once a week. I started my...
