How quickly can you go from zero to catastrophe in your thinking?

How quickly can you go from zero to catastrophe in your thinking?

It’s an ever present source of anxiety isn’t it?

What you likely aren’t aware of is that catastrophe is only one side of the coin. The other side is opportunity.

In fact, let’s reframe how we see the coin. Instead of heads or tails, think head or heart.

Do you lead with your head more than your heart (what are the consequences)?

How do you balance the two in order to avoid the crazy making you put yourself through?

Begin by realizing the head and heart are a partnership not a competition and balance is the order of the day.

The head demands planning and knowing. The heart desires curiosity and learning.

If you go catastrophic it’s because you’re seeing the perfection/planning side of the coin while forgetting it’s partnership with the imperfection/learning side.

Here’s how the partnership looks in action…

Imperfection – Mistake, Adjust, Mistake, Tweak, BINGO!

(Flip the coin)

Perfect♥️ IT WORKS!

Make sense?

Letting go of catastrophic thinking requires you to see perfect and imperfect as inseparable.

Gifting you with a reliable, repeatable path for discovering what works to create a life you’re happy with.

I can guide you in how to master this way of thinking. Just ask me…

Thank goodness for second chances

You’ll have your share of naysayers when you’re neurodivergent. When I first enrolled in the Social Work Program, I had a professor who didn’t like me. She went out of her way to try and get me to drop out of the program. It was the early 1990’s and about a decade before I’d learn

When Facebook wants you to friend a childhood bully

Facebook just recommend I friend someone who literally used to torment me when we were kids. We have FB friends in common it seems. I felt anger at first as I looked at his face. I tried to see evidence of that kid I resented so much. I couldn’t see him. I didn’t know the

Self-care is about more than getting enough rest

Listen to this post … Self-care isn’t simply about taking care of the parts of you that take care of everyone else. It’s about so much more.  It’s about taking care of the “self”, who you are, what fills you up and makes you feel most alive.  I focus on the self-care that strengthens the
