OverthinkingNov 09, 2021
👉I used to think OVER doing things was a good thing……
👉I thought, if I Overthink all the possibilities, I could have all my ducks in a row BEFORE I moved forward. If I overdid my thinking process, I would be able to prevent problems from arising.
👉I needed to have all the certifications before I…..
👉I’d rest when……
👉I’d work on that nagging situation when…...
👉I needed to have all of the technology lined up before I could start the next thing……
👉My language sounded like this….when _____happens then I can ______……
👉Can you relate???
👉All of this OVER THINKING about what had to happen BEFORE I COULD accomplish my goals was holding me back.
👉It was really just a neat excuse for UNDER PERFORMING or procrastination.
👉All of this OVERTHINKING and UNDER PERFORMING were producing lots of feelings.
👉Feelings of imbalance, feelings of anxiety, feelings of overwhelm, feeling like something was always missing….
🔥Enter the OVER/UNDER CYCLE IN another sneaky form. And that is the thing about this OVER/UNDER CYCLE…..it is VERY SNEAKY!
🔥Then I discovered how to trust my strengths, my abilities, and where I was today, exactly as I am WITH the God who was waiting all along to guide me and lead me. All I needed to do was quiet the OVERTHINKING and hear from Him.
🔥It took some tools from the toolbox to work through the patterns that were keeping me stuck. And, it was kind of fun to discover what made me tick in a deeper way. It was fun to learn how my brain was working, then how to get it to work FOR ME, instead of AGAINST ME.
🔥Anyway, I hope this encourages someone out there!
