  • Did that friend that I sent a text to and not reply take my tone the wrong way and now they’re mad at me?

  • I need to buy Q-Tips.

  • Should I quit my job and just dive head first into my new business venture?

(Oh, so that said, you should check out my new business venture website at www.yourabstractassistant.com…Basically, if this was your list, I bet I could take at least 10 of those things out of your brain…that would be good, right?)

That’s just like a few things I can think of, off the top of my head…(seriously, that list took me like 2.5 minutes to accumulate…that’s where I live, in my head, constantly….) It’s exhausting & sometimes makes me feel a little, I don’t know….insane. And that list, is seriously just the tip of the enormous and never-melting iceberg.

What’s on your mental streaming list of all the things you need to do/be/feel/question/accomplish/decide? Comment below. Let’s feel insane together.

Heart you,

-Chick A

  1. Dear Patty, I know. I’ve been buying books on mediation and “What the Buddha Taught” lately, to try to find my Zen. Thanks for reading my rants and always having great comments.
    Love,
    -One of your “other daughters”. ๐Ÿ™‚

    P.S. Seriously, there are SOO many weeds!!! :/

  2. Chick A , this is where meditation comes in to clear your thoughts. I did this year’s ago at concord hospital and then stopped taking the time. Kinda forgot about it. I should bring it into my life again and stop listening to CNN. My dear friend..I think our thoughts take control far too often. In your case look at all you do. Miss A, stop beating yourself up. Spray your weeds don’t pull them..
    And do you have to plant the garden this year? Don’t fret about being nice to.people, you do it naturally and beautifully…it is your gift
    You are not crazy..you are a woman with a full plate who happens to to be a perfectionist. Love your blogs. Love you
    One of your “other mothers”.

  3. OK chicks now hear this
    Get the list outa your head! Carry a little note book in your purse, write the important stuff down.
    Prep your food ahead of time for everybody’s lunches. Make a supper meal plan, and a list! Shop accordingly.
    Stop worrying about every little thing.
    Play with your kids, they will be leaving for college anyway!
    Never say anything out loud you want to take back. Because you can’t, no matter how bad you want to!
    Get and give all the hugs and kisses from your kids now, enough to last you a lifetime!
    Love your man, and remind him how much you love him, the happier you keep him the more he will help out ! Date night should be a real thing on a regular basis!
    Love yourself, forgive yourself, and take care of yourself, and enjoy your life!
    That is all! ๐Ÿ˜‰
