I have happened upon it in the online journal Psychology Today. Here it goes:

if their priorities don’t allow space for you to pursue your own favorite pastimes, you might want to re-consider the longevity potential of the relationship. Also, ask yourself if you feel good about his choices or are you already of thinking of ways that you’d need to “cover” for his behavior?

I can understand what think of means, but I cannot get why the preposition of was used there.

    It must be a typo. I would omit "of" in "of thinking". By the way, a nice way of saying "I have happened upon" is "I came across" – CowperKettle May 1 '18 at 10:09
  • It is more idiomatic to use the simple past there, since you're describing a particular event that took place. I happened upon or as CowperKettle suggests, I came across, or I found. – Tᴚoɯɐuo May 1 '18 at 12:03

The text has a mistake.

"are you already of thinking of ways" should be "are you already thinking of ways".
