Don't Think Just Feel

This is something I have said for a long while but has recently become my Motto and will probably stay that way for a long time.

It stretches to so many different area's of life.
You will find this statement appropriate for everything from learning to love to buying that dress or shoes you have seen, from writing an amazing piece of Poetry to painting a masterpiece to taking that once in a lifetime photograph.
I Challenge you... pick an area of your life and I will tell you how that statement applies.

As human beings, we have a tendency to overthink absolutely EVERYTHING and have stopped just listening to our gut instinct. That little voice that whispers to us showing us the way that we are supposed to go.

Last night I got on my bus and realised that I had somehow misplaced one of my "less than an hr old" gloves. I got home and had a quick rummage through my bags to see if I had slipped it in any of them without realising, needless to say, I hadn't. That little feeling told me to go back to Finsbury Park station just to see if it was there that I had lost it... I ignored this voice for approx 4mins and then put on a pair of chucks and headed back out into the cold... I had been at the station for about 30 seconds when I spotted my -dun dun dunnnnnnnnnnnn- missing glove... a small example maybe but it still highlights my point.

I have lost count of the amount of times I didn't listen but instead allowed events to play out how they wished and wound up kicking myself because I knew better.

So, the next time you have a decision to make... Don't Think Just Feel and then tell me how it went.

DON'THINKJUSTFEL...yes I must follow this motto... avoiding both the negative analysis and self-doubt and the insanely crazy imaginations about the future...

I must just enjoy and live and do the moment... forget what might happen whether it be bad or good.
