How many times a day to you think of a problem? You replay the whole scenario a trillion times and wish it were different—you lament in your wishing, the whys, the this sucks mentality. Dude, I know, because chances are I was probably in this energetic time suck sometime this week.
Welp, I'm sure you know how much, intellectually, this is a waste of time, but you may not actually realize the consequences of focusing on the perils of problem until your brain has no room for anything beautiful or light.
All thoughts gain momentum the more you think of them. So why waste momentum on something unwanted? Problems feel bigger the more you think of them. Anything feels bigger the more you think of it. And, I can hear you saying stuff like, "If I don't think of it, then how can I solve it?" Worrying about a problem is super, beyond words ineffective. Thinking of the solution without the lamenting and the resistance is far more effective. I'm not saying sweep a problem under the rug. Cry. Scream. Feel it all without giving it more fuel. If you face the problem and allow yourself to feel everything to come up without resistance, it'll go away much faster than you think. The energy behind a problem can dissipate when you are lovingly facing it, but if you're fighting it and blaming and denying, it'll stick around longer than necessary.
So let that shit go and focus on the solution.
Build the positive momentum of anything and everything. Redirect your attention to what you want and do so without force and pretending. Be easy and gentle with yourself. You can't get it wrong, and if you're constantly worried about doing it right or wrong, you'll stall out pretty fast.
Honor where you are and continue shifting to what you want. Want to write more? Imagine what it's like to be writing more. What does it feel like? And, then start carving out the time to write more. You are a priority. Your creativity is golden to well-being. Honor it and focus on what works and how you want it to be, and believe it. Feel it as possible and inevitable. Allow more. Resist less.
