I've recently felt really overwhelmed, which always makes the simplest of tasks or activities feel insanely hard to do. Whether it's meal prep, or texting a friend back, or tidying a room, feeling stressed can make anything feel like moving a mountain. 🏔 I'm using an app called Bloom, which uses CBT practices to create… Continue reading Overwhelmed? Turn 1 big task into 3 smaller ones (+ a free tool!)
Aw man. I've been musing. I've been pondering. To the ends of the Earth and back. And we all know the Earth's a circle, with no "end" — so, you know, I'm technically still musing and pondering... Anyway. This is just a dump. Of what's on my mind. No order, no editing, nothing. Just my… Continue reading Just things I’ve been thinking about. That’s it. That’s the post.

And it’s pretty scary to have that awareness, because I’m starting to see how badly I communicate with the people around me, and even with myself, when I use the words “never” and “always.” Both in the things I think and say. It’s stopping me from having meaningful conversations, and reaching productive outcomes when I’m faced with a problem, a challenge, or an insecurity. This post is about why they have that effect, and how I’m trying to replace “always” and “never” with “sometimes” and “often”
