Worst-Case Scenario Thinking

It’s so easy for us moms to start envisioning and entertaining the worst-case scenario when it comes to our child when they talk back, don’t listen, or seem disrespectful.

But what if we didn’t indulge in the awfulness of that vision we’re dreaming up about our kiddos and we got curious instead?

Instead of creating more emotions, more lack, more uncertainty, more fear; what if we could pause and get curious?

What if we asked ourselves some questions about what our mind is dreaming up and got curious?

I love telling moms to start by going all the way to the worst-case scenario and see what comes up. What if this did happen? What would that mean? Why is that a problem? Keep asking your questions and let yourself go there.

From this place of curiosity, so many possibilities will open up for you compared to the limited options available to us when you indulge in a worst-case scenario from a place of fear or lack.

Inquire instead of indulging.
