The older I get, the more I realize there is so much I don’t know. Despite all of the work I have done in my quest for knowledge and understanding, I am still ignorant about so much. Just when I think I “get it”, something happens to put me in my place. “Don’t start thinking you’re so smart Miss Thing, because you don’t have a clue.” That is the message I hear loud and clear. It’s humbling really. And then I sheepishly thank God that I’m not expected to have all the answers, and acknowledge that He’s in charge. What a blessing to be brought down to level sometimes, because it’s during those times that I relax the expectations I have for myself, and go about my day actually living it, rather than getting lost in my own head and missing out on the juiciness of life.
Do you ever get lost in your own head? If you recognize that you do, what thoughts tend to consume you?
Please understand, that it's not that thinking in itself is a bad thing. We absolutely need our rational minds to process information and make sense of things. It's when we get stuck in our heads, and it happens more often than not, that over-thinking and over-analyzing can become a hindrance. Getting stuck in our heads can distract us from truly savoring whatever is going on in the moment. And that's not the point of life. Life is meant to be lived in all of its rawness—good and bad.
When do you tend to get lost in your head? Have you noticed patterns in the occurrences or frequency? What is one thing you can do to be more present in the moment?
Glory B's unifies all of what I love most—the earth and its natural elements like stone and wood; the creative arts, whether through the written word, or photography, or paint; and helping others to make the world a better place.
