FROM THE ETHERS
Get out of your head. Yes, you. Stop it, just stop. Better yet, stop caring what other people think of you; hence being in your head.
Obviously, this has been coming up in my life quite a bit lately. I am aware of it, but at times lose sight of it. I did catch myself today. I found myself thinking about a class I recently attended and how I should have let people know what happened in my instance. I’m not sure why I didn’t. Today, I said out loud to myself and perhaps the universe, ‘Stop it. Who really cares? Let it go, Lori.’ Knowing me though, I will say something the next time I see the teacher or not. We shall see if the opportunity presents itself. Here I go again – being in my head.
How many of you do this? Raise your hands peeps.
However, we do have to think – it’s a no-brainer. And at times it’s OK to be in our heads.
Backstory: My first staff writing job out of college was at a daily newspaper. One time I turned my story in and headed for home. About halfway there I realized that I forgot to add something to the story. I went back. Sure enough, my editor was working on the story. He was appreciative that I came back. One time being in my head worked for me and others. Did I beat myself up? No, I did not. I got the job done.
This blog initially came about when I spoke with my daughter the other day. After about 20 minutes of chatting. She finally said that I think way too much. She also reminded me that I should not let what one person said to me get under my skin. She said, ‘Who cares what they said? Who cares what they think?’ She is correct.
I’ve decided that it is OK to think about things. We have got to do it to survive. We just don’t have to play out scenarios that may or may not happen. Instead of trying to force situations, go with the flow. Stay at a higher rate of vibration, be positive, look at the bright side, etc.
It’s an inside job. Sometimes we all could use a little reminder of that.
Thought provoking quotes:
“Spend eighty percent of your time focusing on the opportunities of tomorrow rather than the problems of yesterday” – Brian Tracy
“Thinking too much leads to paralysis by analysis. It's important to think things through, but many use thinking as a means of avoiding action.”
