    1. Yessss! Thanks D! I love knowing that the 5 WHYS will work for you too. The crazy dumb stuff that gets stuck in our head on repeat – from D to Dr. D – we are united by our thoughts. Thanks for sharing. Wishing you a day filled with peace and self-compassion. πŸ˜€


  1. Oh wow I love this. Why? That’s so good.
    I keep doing this one thing that I wish I wouldn’t do and then I’m fearful to face it.
    Because I know it’s stupid.
    But sometimes I let myself do stupid things and later I say to myself don’t do that again.
    Wow that wasn’t so scary after all.
    Love this! Yay
    Have a super day!

    1. I love that you watched the video! And especially how closely aligned my example on YouTube matched your own situation. FAV PART: You had me laughing out loud at your reply about your family. Sometimes we have to let. it. go. And ultimately realize that we’re only in charge of our own destiny. Have a wonderful day filled with poetry & humour.. πŸ˜‰
