“their claims are poppycock”

The idea hit me like a slap on the rump. This is a great idea! I want to do this! I mean, I really want to do this! I immediately began planning and researching and building my idea up until it was ready to be executed. But, at the pinnacle of excitement, as I’m standing on the proverbial cliff about to take my leap of faith, perpetual poppycock sets in. And just like that, my great idea is derailed and status quo wins again.

Hi! My name is Ashley and I suffer from chronic Perpetual Poppycock Syndrome, self diagnosed and named. I am a master in the art of overthinking, undermining and derailing any good idea. Its a skill I’ve honed over decades and today, it is my natural state.

Well the buck stops here! This blog is a testament to my trials and errors of overcoming perpetual poppycock and actually doing what I say I want to do. Living, how I say I want to live. Being, who I say I want to be. Saying…you get the idea.

Stay tuned for stories of successes and struggles, about no one notable, dealing with perpetual poppycock.
