Just listen

Don’t think or judge, just listen.

I think, overthink, plan, and judge far too much. With everything. Knitting, jiu jitsu, people, life. Although I think I judge myself the hardest. (Texas may disagree with that last one from time to time.)

I keep getting told to stop overthinking and just do.

Not so easy when you “need” a plan for everything that could happen. I suppose it is a byproduct of my upbringing. I can tell you that it drives other people nuts sometimes. Hell, it even drives me a little batty.

I need to stop and listen more. To my thoughts, to others and to my body. I need to not judge myself (or others) so harshly.

I’m finding that the longer I do it, Jiu Jitsu is making me look at my character flaws rather than just my physical ones. I really thought it was just about challenging and changing my physical self. Ha! The joke is on me… in a good way.

Happy Thursday y’all! What do you have planned for the long weekend?

  1. The older I get, the less I over think things. All it does is make me unhappy. I do what I can and let the chips fall where they may (mmmmm….chips). I do my best and deal with things as they come. Thinking just gets in the way of happiness. 🙂
