Here we are, another day. What will happen? Some things happen because we make them. Other things happen to us. For instance I have a meeting to cover this morning. What will happen because I chose to go and cover the meeting? What would happen if I chose to stay home (other than the obvious I mean)?
I think part of my problem is that I over think things. Being able to see both sides or conversely be able to look at “all” possible options or outcomes can be a bad thing when over used. Because “all” will inevitably include the bad side. And once my mind/imagination gets to the bad side of things it has a heyday. Imagining all the various bad things that could happen and their possible consequences is overwhelming. It is a hard habit to get out of. To be honest I’m not sure how I got this far down the rabbit hole! But I did and I need to find a way out. Like Alice I am stuck behind the looking glass and I need to find my way back.
Learning to reprogram my own mind is interesting and difficult. I know the whys and wherefores but the execution is sometimes iffy. So I try to do a little every day. Some days are better than others. Somedays I fall back to almost the beginning. But I still have to try. That is why I’m taking so many photos. I’m trying to get at my creativity from another standpoint. I don’t know if it’s working but I am having fun anyway.
On a side yet related note I made the mistake of trying to do the update on my phone before I left for the meeting (the last update was completed in a matter of minutes). I don’t think it will be done before I leave which means I will probably have to leave my phone here (it will be useless anyway while it updates). This also means that I cannot upload the photos that I took that I wanted to share with you. So I guess I will be doing a second post today so I can share my photos. I need to get ready to head out the door for the meeting. I hope you have a great day!

“I think part of my problem is that I over think things.” – You and me both.
