Oh I'm a wingdoodler of an overthinker. (My made up word wingdoodler: def: really good at "task".)
My goodness. I can really overthink shit. Plus, I've been doing a lot of it lately.
I did a podcast about it this morning. Had to share it just in case someone else was feeling the same way.
Woosh. And I found these funny memes online and figured - these are just perfect for the way I've been thinking and feeling.
Okay mind. You want to think? How about getting creative? I'm very excited that Mental Girl book 2 is in the works. I finished it and it's now with my editor. She'll work her magic. She'll polish it up and get it all sparkly. Next step, I send it to another wonderful guy who works his magic and gets it in Kindle format. Then....it will be ready to publish and you all can read it. I'm so pleased. My son worked on the artwork for the cover again and I'm super happy with the results.
So - Rebecca - over think that stuff. Why over think about all this other crap I've been worrying about and picking at? Anxiety are you bored? Anxiety are you restless? Anxiety are you feeling left out? Anxiety would you like to be heard? Well if you do - I'll lovingly listen, but you can't run the show. No.
Taking a deep breath right now.
See? I go through this stuff. I talk about the tools. I share with you practicing self love is the foundation. I share with you some tips and trades. But I also share that I'm human, I can be vulnerable, I hurt sometimes, I'm afraid sometimes - and....another deep breath - I'm not ashamed. That's the big thing. I'm not ashamed. I know this about me now. My goodness, I should, I've been like this a super long time. That's why I"m a wingdoodler at the overthinking! I've had a lot of practice. However - now....I'm turning into a wingdoodler of a self love practicer (yes I now not a real word) and advocate for self care/self love. I'm turning into a wingdoodler of a solution based, deep breathing, I'm not ashamed and I like myself person.
I've been posting stuff on Instagram as well. My vulnerable side - my fragility - and the "human" stuff I go through. I film myself raw, no makeup, no filter and......can you guess what I'm going to say? No shame!
Learn to drop the shame.
Learn to drop some of the self criticism. Sure we need some to motivate us to change. But don't go down the spiral so you are what I call 6 degrees of everything is shit and the world is shit. Okay?
I'm here with you.
Mental Girl is with you.
YOU are here.
I know YOU want to feel good.
I know YOU want to like yourself.
I know YOU want to feel a zest and vitality for life.
And YOU deserve it.
Let's take another deep breath.
It's Monday. Beginning of another week. Let's do this!
Thanks for being here.
Thanks for your support.
I appreciate you.
