"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.”
– Neil Gaiman
Thinking is important but it isn't everything.
Make sure you include the entire body, especially the heart.
I like to take things in with my heart first, and then sometimes check in with the head.
Most of the time it's our thoughts that get us into trouble emotionally, and in making decisions, so when we overthink we are digging a deeper hole of confusion, chaos, and anxiety.
It’s usually thinking that has caused our problems so thinking is not always the best solution beautiful ones. 🌹
