“I want what I want when I want it” – otherwise known as the inability to delay gratification, was my attitude towards life before recovery. With this mindset, I was unable to see the consequences of plowing forward to get what I wanted. This week’s episode 209 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about missing red flags- when you want what you want when you want it!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing some examples from my life where I was unable to delay my gratification (& suffered the consequences) and the tools I have gained through recovery that have allowed me to change this mindset.
Do not underestimate the ability to pause because it’s what leads us to be able to make rational decisions like a mature adult instead of acting out of our addictive, compulsive, and obsessive patterns of the past. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
