What Did She Say

My mind is always open

June 6th’s prompt was this:

Next to resistance, rational thought is the artist or entrepreneur’s worst enemy. Bad things happen when we employ rational thought, because rational thought comes from the ego. Instead, we want to work from the self, that is, from instinct and intuition, from the unconscious.

A child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It’s only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate. ~ Steven Pressfield, Do the Work

The idea of “being realistic” holds all of us back.

(Part of) Today’s question: What’s the one thing you’ve always wanted to accomplish but have been afraid to pursue?…

I don’t know. There really isn’t anything I’ve always wanted to accomplish. I’ve been floating through life without a path and now I’m tangled in the hydro wires. I’m stuck.

Afraid to float again.

Afraid to fall.

Afraid to stay where I am.

I feel ridiculous for wanting to pursue my own business.

I have been chastised for not thinking of my family.

“Rational thought” is all around me and it’s stifling.

My gut tells me one thing, but my cavewoman brain tells me another.

Reality is closing in on me and I’m paralyzed. I know what I “need” to do and it’s really not that hard, so why haven’t I done it yet?

My inner bitch tells me it’s because I’m lazy, selfish and undeserving.

I need to get past these wires I’m tangled in but I’m not sure how.
