Let’s talk about “overthinking and knowing,” believe me, I know a thing or two. Just call me … “Lil miss overthinker of everything” over here.”
I’ve been an unfocused mess, worrier, and frenemy with a head full of invisible boogeymen, big and small.
Procrastination, distraction, and sabotage became pals, and we were doing just a lil too much on all the wrong things. For instance, I would do absolutely Nothing but stall, doubt, and worry about insignificant bullSh*t.
I started Fires, living with my hair in flames, constantly playing fireman to put out the fires I started!! The result of all this insignificant action was fiddle-farting around and failure to launch anything effective.
Consequently, I’ve learned this kind of fear thinking and mindset will feed worry about “everything” unknown. You can certainly trust me on this one.
Nevertheless, I still catch myself in the back and forth to work through some Sh*T!(i.e. outdated belief systems, limiting thoughts, and most of all, feelings).
So, this comes from someone who‘s been rather impulsive about things.
In other words, I’m still learning to make sense of life.
That is to say, there’s always somehow a certain “knowing” in my spirit.
I know everything will work out despite the boogeymen.
I finally grasped, most importantly, a “move forward” is not determined by just information; new perspectives arise and shifts continue through active reflection, prayer, and writing.
My trusted allies in vanquishing boogeymen: time, patience, and willingness for thought and inquiry of expectations (mines and others) are now essential.
Forward action is then real and open with more flexibility toward possibilities to become a reality.
To sum up, while our “knowing” is fundamentally invaluable, the added bonus of this “knowing” in reality, is when we don’t know. This creates curiosity…Priceless!
No Fluff. just straight, no chaser! Hallelujah!
From this understanding, I’ve become more sensitive…
1. to triggers in my environment that contribute to my dithering
2. consider what’s reeeally going on
3. make a decision and get to moving something
Trust your intuition, gut, lessons learned, and spiritual leanings, either way, you cut it. You see, it’s your personal “knowing” (what’s known and unknown) working with timing to move the process ahead.
The most relevant action forward — “on time knowledge, for the right reasons, with the proper emphasis.”
You recognize what passes as good for you in the present, a mighty wonderful thing! The result is constructive and positive like sitting on the corner of bombdiggity! Booyah!
