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?
