Overthinking Ollie hasn’t made an appearance in quite some time.
For that, I am extremely proud. (especially as kicking that overthinking tailspin came at the exact right time in my life, because I was heading down a very ugly path in my head, otherwise).
But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t rear her ugly head now and again and I have to tamp it down ever so gently (yet firmly).
You see, overthinking leads to negativity.
Overthinking leads to going for the field goal, and not the touchdown.
All of these things I have worked so hard to quell and have honestly conquered pretty damn well, I do believe.
But sometimes, overthinking rears its ugly head and I need to remind myself just how far I’ve come. In life, love, my job, and my body.
Harness that, and not the negative, questioning, comparing that can be so ugly.
PS check out this fantastic article from Emma…she interviewed me for the article and I am so proud of how it came out. Thank you for the opportunity to share my story and how I harnessed my divorce to turn it into an experience that shapes me to this day. When Overachievers Divorce.
