Do you tend to overanalyze the sh** out of things?
Pardon my French.
I’ve found that a lot of creative people are big thinkers. Which is awesome most of the time and not so awesome other times. Awesome because it makes us unbelievable problem solvers. Not so awesome when there isn’t a problem to solve so we create one.
You know what I’m talking about?
It’s that (almost) constant need to analyze or improve or solve something. It’s the voice that won’t ever let anything just be. The same voice that we listen to and feel trapped by.
But you know it doesn’t have to be that way. I know you do.
You’ve got a choice. You know that too.
No one create your life better than you can. No one knows what you want better than you do. No one can decide how they want to feel better than you.
And every time you make that choice, that voice gets a little weaker. Your fears lose their power. You remember that you’re free.
Like a dog with its head out the window.
Or laughing hysterically about who knows what.
Or dancing just because.
You know, the freedom to
It is accessible anywhere. Anytime. You can find it. And often it will find you when you need it the most.
When you begin to activate the feeling of freedom more often, you’ll open your mind to new possibilities. Possibilities that couldn’t be discovered through analyzing. Because your thoughts won’t be coming from a place of fear and worry, they’ll be from truth and knowing. Your mind will be clearer. Your decisions will come easier.
All because you took a moment to remember that you are free.
To be happy.
To love life.
To be you.
So hopefully this post began to trigger some amazing memories and moments where you felt absolute freedom.
Write about all the moments you can remember where you felt free.
And to go even deeper, write down and answer these questions:
What is freedom to me?
How would I describe the sensation?
What’s going on in my mind when I’m feeling free?
How does feeling free benefit me?
Who else benefits from feeling free?
