I had no idea what to do for these 30 Days until Tuesday. Really. I was at a loss, and my brain kept running over scenarios and possibilities. I had thoughts and ideas that kept morphing and changing and shifting until I was drowning in the what ifs. You see, I’m a chronic overthinker. And it’s reached epidemic proportions. I overthink everything, especially lately, and it’s made life so much more complicated.
Everything is a chore. I have have to double and triple check my calendar for appointments. I’m up at night running through plans and options and possibilities. I complicate what I wear or eat, where I go, and how spend my time. I complicate our activities, and how we get places. I second guess this blog, my freelance work, when’s the best time to call my mother.
And I’m kind of sick of it. I feel overrun and overwhelmed. And honestly, it’s all kind of pointless. I mean, why can’t I accept that things are the way they seem on the surface? Why do I have to over analyze and worry every last detail?
So these 30 days are all about simplifying. I want to pare down, in my thoughts, in my actions, my stuff. I want to take the uncomplicated and plain path. My goal is to simplify my life and to learn to think in elementary ways. I am looking for my reason, my passion, my happy beneath all of the excess. I am looking for a softer and easier approach.
It should be simple, right?
