I read a blog post by Teal Swan that talked about listing as many of your childhood passions and interests that you could, and then going over each one, looking for a strong emotional reaction. The one that elicits the strongest reaction is the most crucial to follow. It makes sense to me. You can't back up a course of action that lacks any oomph whatsoever, and that has no emotional connection.
O.K. So I hope y'all will forgive me for using this deck YET AGAIN. But I feel that I am going to stop using it soon. I've been hankering to get a real deck out and take photos rather than screen shots. I prefer the feel of photographs to using these pre-scanned images.
Despite my postings lately, many of them brimming with creativity momentum such as taking action, planning something specific and carrying it out, and otherwise seizing opportunities I may have rejected out of hand, I seem to still be stuck in analysis paralysis. OYE!
Well, that is alright. I recognize that I am not going to 'get it right' in one shot. I am going to flounder occasionally with this whole taking action thing, but I am not going to let it bother me too much. I mean, I want to be bothered enough that I actually take action, apply some focus and discipline and try to shoo away my ever-present fears.
Whoa, haha. I had one of those fun synchronous moments. My daughter is home sick today and she is playing a Cat in the Hat game on her computer (going to get her off the computer soon), and the Cat in the Hat (played by Martin Short), is saying some sort of rhyme about choosing something. I forget the exact wording but it's something like:
"Roses are red, violets are blue. I'm making a choice, so I choose...YOU!"
Anyway. Lovely. I have an assignment already, which is making gifts for my friend's bridal party, so I will definitely work on the details of that (scent, product ideas, packaging, etc), and I will try to see what other ideas rise to the surface of my consciousness. I have felt the tension in my body and mind lately of 'not knowing' what the heck I am doing, but that is only because I am resisting the process of figuring it out. I'm all uptight about it. I feel relaxation and being in the flow is an essential part of knowing how to move forward. I'm sure that's why meditation and relaxation practices are so key.
