Welcome back to crazy little things! I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not well that is ok too because you don’t have to be ok all the time as you are only human. I am scared I am failing life, I feel like everything is a struggle and that seems to be the definition for my life. Maybe it is the anxiety talking, she did pop by earlier to fuck up my day. I have felt like I have been in stuck in the mud for a while but it turns out that it was actually quicksand I was in, maybe I am just being a tad dramatic because I feel like I have lost my way a little. My life is full of unanswered questions and I need to start finding the answers, soon.
Even though I feel a bit blah right now, I have been taking my own advice about not causing my own storms, by not letting a few bad moments turn into a bad day. I have had some points this week where I felt life was punching me in the face but I didn’t let it drag me down, which is great. I am feeling proud, but it has left me a little mentally drained. This means that this weekend I am have got plans with me, myself and I plus going to bump up the self-care to recharge the batteries.
So once the batteries are fully charged I can get some answers to those questions and start punching life in the face with my awesomeness, actually, I would settle for half the battery power and giving life a dirty look right now.
Now let’s move on to my tip of the day –
Our inner child is key in kicking the overthinking monster’s ass!
I suppose overthink about how much I overthink and then overthink some more because I couldn’t remember what I was overthinking about in the first place. While this overthinking is taking place, the bitch of anxiety is just laughing in the background because that is her monster she uses to barge herself into your life.
I spend way too much energy and way to much time overthinking and maybe that is why my life feels like it is full of questions, (even that was kind of question!)
Overthinking is not an easy monster to beat and to overcome she is like level 1000, but it is something you can start to fight back against.
You can start off small by saying hello to the person serving you in the shop or coffee shop, even though the monster is telling you not to. I guess it is like going back to being a child. When you parent would tell you no and you still did it anyway, we need to find our inner child to defeat that monster of overthinking. That inner child is still in there, probably playing with Legos, but they are in there and ready and waiting to tell that monster, screw you I do it anyway!
