Instead of making me feel as though there’s a clear path ahead of me, all I feel is a sense of dread – pressure on my heart and a pinching as if there’s too much to do and none of it anything I’d really care to do.
Sometimes a different approach is needed…
A note to myself: “THIS IS NOT A TO DO —this is a brain dump to see where my head is at
It’s a mess, but it makes sense to me! <3
And the key to the process is to keep at it long enough to “get the message.” I was pleased with this little (OK…giant) creation. Looking it over though I started feeling pressured again; that whole too-much-to do-not-enough-time-or-inclination-to-do-it feeling crept back in.
That’s when I picked up that vivid purple-y colored marker and wrote: “THIS IS NOT A TO DO” and that’s when I remembered that of course it isn’t! I did this exercise to get straight what was going on in my head. And voila! There’s a whole lot going on in there – no wonder I can’t focus on one thing!
