Under Most Headaches, Lies a Heartache

Often times my reaction to problems or certain situations is to think through them rather than to feel through them. This has been a lesson that I am slow to learn. I have been known to spend countless hours overthinking and overanalyzing a problem or situation. There are certainly times when the thinking mind is absolutely necessary. However, I believe many of us have become addicted to thinking and have forgotten how to feel.

.

Beneath most headaches, there is usually a heartache. When I get caught in tortuous over-thinking, it's usually a great time to pause, to listen to my heart, and to feel. That's where the ticket lies.

.

Thinking can easily become a distraction from healing and moving on. One of the most natural ways for me to get out of my head and into my heart is by laughing and being a goof. It puts me in touch with my child like state, when thinking didn't matter so much and present moment fun was the norm.

Today, I will give my mind a break and give my wounds some air to breathe.

Today, I will laugh, have fun, and drink sketchy water from a fountain.

Are you a former or current player on team over-thinking?
