Overthinking.

It’s been a while. And to be honest, it was hard to write this post. I’ve been away from blogging for a few months and wasn’t sure if I should continue with my blog. I decided that I do enjoy having a blog and a place to track what I’m thinking and my journey towards a healthier life … so I’m back 🙂

You may or may not personally relate, but I’ve come to realize just how much I tend to overthink things. It’s something that I’m definitely working at. My mind is constantly going and thinking about decisions, situations, possibilities, what can I be doing better, what’s next, etc. Even just with this blog for example – the amount of times I’ve thought about posts that I’ve wanted to write, should I continue to blog, should I not, etc. Crazy!  I’ve allowed overthinking to really hold me back from a lot. Because of just that; thinking so much that I spend a lot of time thinking about things and not a lot of time taking action and doing what I want.

Without getting too deep – it has really taken a toll on my life. Especially over the last few months. I feel like I’ve been in an unmotivated “funk”. There are so many things I want to do and experience and for some reason I really haven’t been “making moves” on my plans. I’ve just been spending a lot of time making the plans. I get disappointed when I think about it but – because I do so much self-reflection – I’m happy I can acknowledge this and fix it. I don’t want to hold back from doing things I want to do. And I’m not going to any longer! I know the best thing to do … the only thing … is to  JUST DO IT … haha a tad corny but true! (Thanks Nike for the inspiration lol)

I’m going to work at spending more time doing and less time weighing the options and over analyzing them. I’m still working on My Quarter Life Project – which by the way I spent a lot of time overthinking and not a lot of doing. But like I said … more time doing and less time thinking. Moves will be happening!

This post is a bit short but I just needed to get it off my chest. I hope at the very least this was motivating for you to make things happen if you’ve been like me and just haven’t  been.

It feels good to get back to blogging. I love that I have this outlet to just write about what I’m feeling. Please let me know if you have been in a “funk” before and how you got yourself out of it and found motivation again!

For the football fans reading this – Happy Super Bowl Sunday! I hope the team you’re rooting for wins 🙂

XO,
