    I had fun and most importantly, I learned a lot from you after this collaboration, Shelly. If I be honest, this was the most impactful collaboration that I have done! Thanks so much!

    I’ve had a lot of problems with overthinking getting in the way of sleep. I’ve been using a meditation app when it gets really bad. Noticing when I’m overthinking and reminding myself to stop is getting easier.

    I love this post. I am working on a post about the life lessons from my cancer experience. You’ll love this one “Pre-cancer Michelle would overthink everything and she wasn’t much of a risk taker.” I literally typed that sentence last night, and woke up this morning to see this post, and your guest post on Saumya’s blog.

    I’ve often wished I could be one of those spontaneous, throw-caution-to-the-wind type of people but I’m just not wired that way. These days, I stop and ask myself “What’s the worst that could happen?” That’s usually enough to make me realize it’s worth taking a chance.

      Oh wow that sounds like a good read! I also wish I could be laissez faire but I think the world needs a balance. If we were all carefree, bubonic would’ve wiped us out ages ago!

    I love this
    ….informative and well written.
    Overthinking is dangerous. It’s okay to be a little anxious about certain things so that you can work and find solutions for them, it becomes a problem when one starts to over do it.
    That’s where triune begins

      Thanks for reading! You’re right about being anxious in small doses. That adrenaline rush or sense of responsibility can actually be good!

    Great post that raises some questions for me. The ability to focus on an issue or have the passion to follow through is clearly a strength. The perfectionism of overthinking and the uncontrollable loops of obsessive thinking are much less helpful though. Is it possible to have the positive side without the negative or is this a package deal?
