Oh, the stories we tell ourselves…
I, for one, am truly a master at creating Oscar-worthy scripts in my head.
Ones ripe with dramatic storylines about all the ways I am screwing up this incredible shot I get at life.
AND because of my talent for creating dramatic storylines…
Every. Single. Day. I take time to rewrite those scripts to make sure they have an ending that works FOR ME and not against me. (I have talked about this process a lot on the Grace & Grit podcast)
It is a daily practice; one that I am prepared to do for the rest of my life because the human brain can take us to some crazy-ass places if we let it.
My brain, just like every human brain, needs a little (sometimes a massive amount of) parenting.
So every morning I do a brain dump to see what new drama my brain is trying to add to the storyline on this day.
Then, I do a lot of editing and a lot of rewriting to make sure the story is the one I want to be producing.
How about you?
What daily practices do you have for parenting your brain?
