  1. Thank you for sharing. Cherie! I too am very familiar with this type of “rumination” cycle, just never had a name for it. I had always prided mysel in being a positive person/a glass 1/2 full kind of person, and I am problem solver by nature! But most recently I’ve noted in past years, when an issue or problem arise I get very flustered/negative and sometimes can’t seem to find a solution! My own husband has commented that I get to flustered! I pray God will help me (and all others) struggling with this issue and help us make a “new” choice!!!

  2. This was really useful! I’ve gotten stuck a lot lately, so I appreciate your ideas–and I’m glad to know I’m not alone in this.

    Thanks Cheri, this was very helpful. I so relate to the going nowhere cycle. The last couple of years, I’ve focused on breaking that cycle…made progress but still easy to fall back into old habits/patterns.

  4. I’m all too familiar with the paralyzing helpless feeling and rumination. Thanks for this, Cheri. I just made an annotated “Reflection Circle” to glue in the front of my journal.
