What is the word…when you get so overwhelmed you just freeze up? Like, jammed, but not. Why do I think it starts with a C? Used with machinery?
Anyway, my brain is stuck and I don’t know the word that I’m trying to use. I have, in the last 10 years or so, come to understand that it’s anxiety that leads me to make lists and over plan. Do you do this? I do this. A LOT.
Now, making lists means literally nothing in relation to completing anything on said lists. But sometimes it’s nice to see that is going on in my brain in a semi-ordered manner, even if it’s temporary. Every once in a while, I’ll realize that once it’s all written out, there isn’t as much there as I originally thought. Unfortunately, more often than not, I find that there is so much more going on that I wasn’t even thinking about.
Maybe list making is a bad idea. Or the best idea ever.
