The Concerns of KP is an informal documentation of the obsessive thoughts that permeate my brain while I am trying very hard to complete important tasks, connect with the living humans in front of me, or sleep.

Concerns include, but are not limited to:

Look how normal I can pretend to be!

Look how normal I can pretend to be!

  • Am I good enough? Doing enough? Definitely not, right?

  • My dogs, and whether or not they feel fulfilled in life

  • Figuring out how the heck to live contentedly in the present (check out my Happiness Project)

  • What can I do right now to become a millionaire by tomorrow?

  • Questioning where the balance between being well-rounded but not overwhelmed lies. Also the balance between eating healthily and not wanting to jump off of a cliff when I sometimes succumb to Ben & Jerry’s. (As you may have noticed, balance is a recurring theme.)

  • Should I have created a more niche blog, like maybe one about teaching cats how to bake cookies, so I could actually make an income off of it?

  • TV

  • Is Mindy Kaling going to sue me when she notices I ripped off her blog title?

  • What is my purpose in life? Also, how big, really, in the simplest of terms, is space?

  • Mostly, my enormous obsession with self-improvement and slightly smaller obsession with learning how to not be so hard on myself/such a self-improvement obsessed perfectionist

  • Oh yeah, and of course, my husband, family, friends, career(s), yada, yada, yada

Ultimately, this is an online diary I’m keeping about how to navigate life when you care so much about making it count. I hope it can be a place for the dreamers and do-ers, the ones committed to becoming our best so we can be there for the ones we love and the world around us, those of us who are scared of failure 99% of the time but are jumping off of metaphorical cliffs anyway. I hope we can share projects, adventures and learn from one another.
