Keep Calm and Stop Overthinking!
I am often told that I think too much…but in my field it can be considered a good thing in some ways. But indeed too much thinking and over analysis can be bad for your health!
When you stop thinking however, you stop dreaming, planning and progressing…so the key is to strike a balance between reflection, meditation and obsession.
All in all…we can expect peace of mind by offering our concerns in prayer. A peace that seems so divine and mysterious would wash over us that soon we would be back in our happy place. We must remember this so as to avoid regressing to a place where we don't want to be.
Only when you are tested you know how strong you really are. Many things are happening behind the scenes and although we are not fully aware right now, trust that it is working in your favour. Many times we look around at other people’s successes and we ask God why ours is taking so long to come to fruition. Little do we know the sacrifices and hardships that person had to endure to get where they are.
I am by no means where I am destined to be, but as I become one step closer to my intended destination, I feel like I am leaving behind some things and people that were once considered dear. Other things have just been modified somewhat. And I ask myself if this is what is to be expected as I continue to navigate through my life and reach for my dreams. Am I naïve to expect different or am I gullible to have put my faith and trust in other human beings…
As I embark on my newest adventure, I am grateful for the support from the ones that genuinely care. I don’t know what the future holds but I do know that I will remain steadfast to my goals no matter how many stumbling blocks or disappointments that may present itself along the way. I will also learn to block out the other things that are going on in the background of the far reaches of my mind. No longer will I let it plague me and rain on my parade!
Going forward I will learn to follow my first instincts and make careful choices that can affect my future happiness.
In life things don’t always turn out the way you want but there is always Plan B and C :-)
Learn to listen to your heart and stay true to yourself…some days will be rough but that’s the only way you can ever truly be happy and at peace.
Until next time…
Peace & Love
