Over thinking

I find myself paralysed at the moment. I have millions of thoughts coursing through my head. Lots of options and possibilities on the horizon, all positive. Yet, I am finding it really difficult to make a decision. It feels like I am letting mistakes of the past and the fear of making them again, stop me from moving forward.

This is not an uncommon pattern for the ‘Stressaholic’. It is part of the cycle and the special art form we have of creating problems that don’t exist or………as my mother would say ‘making mountains out of molehills’.

I seem to get into this mindset that life is really just a puzzle. If I think hard enough I can find the solution to any problem (life). Of course, in reality there really is no solution to the ‘problem’ only several different approaches that may or may not yield the desired results. Let’s face it, it is trial and error.

But…….still I bang on thinking about things backwards, forwards, sideways and upside down. Making sure to interview others along the way to see if they have any valuable input to my quandary.


This is a very accurate depiction of how my brain looks and feels right now. How on earth can anyone make a sane decision with all that craziness in their head?

The only way forward is to step back!

It is time to step away from the problem and take a look at the bigger picture. To spend some time just being and not thinking. To clear the mind and exist. I think tomorrow it is time for a return to yoga.
