Noticing My Black-and-White Thinking

For quite a while now, I’ve been taking notice of my black-and-white thinking patterns.  Especially when it comes to housework.  I get so overwhelmed, and then I tell myself I don’t have to do it all right now.  I can do it in stages – a little bit at a time.  It’ll still get done.  This helps a lot.  Right now, I’m chipping away at our laundry.  We were without a dryer for the first time in twenty years and just recently got a used one.  The laundry had piled up while I was going to the laundromat.  I’m getting it caught up slowly but surely.  This is just one area of my life where I’ve noticed my black-and-white thinking.  There are many other times that I’ve noticed myself doing all-or-nothing thinking.  But once I notice it, I can do something about it.

Have you noticed yourself doing black-and-white or all-or-nothing thinking?  Have you made any progress in that area?  What have you done to make progress?  Please share in the Comments below.  Till next time,
