A chat with Krista O’Reilly Davi-Digui, Enneagram Type 1.

In this unedited video I chat to Krista, Writer, Joyful Living Educator and founder of A Life in Progress. Krista resonates with Type 1 on the Enneagram and in this discussion, she shares what it’s like navigating life through the lens of the Strict Perfectionist and shares some of the inspiring lessons that have helped her on her personal growth journey. 


Some interesting observations:

  • Her deep care for people and the world around her and the genuine desire to make things better

  • The sense of carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders through her intense awareness of what’s really going on, how people are suffering

  • Her love for order, systems, processes and proficiency

  • Her mean inner critic that’s always telling her she’s not good enough

  • Her sense of never being fully at ease or rest; a constant internal wrestling for improvement

  • Her tendency towards procrastination as a way of avoiding the potential for being imperfect

some of krista’s lessons:

  • Learning to be okay with always being “in progress” and knowing that she is enough as she is, right now

  • Daily, ongoing work to love herself and show herself true acceptance and compassion

  • Understanding that she doesn’t always have to have all the answers

  • Letting go of the need to “fix” herself but rather loosen the grip and advocate for herself and her needs

  • Daily selfcare

  • Leveraging her strengths by offering that which she herself needs, to others

  • Learning not to quit, but rather to show up consistently, every single day.
