If we are not willing to let go knotty and prickly issues in time, our mental frame can be wrecked before long. One must be prepared to get the monkey off the back, eventually. – Erik Pevernagie
We need to flush our minds at times because we have a tendency to carry to much in it at times. Holding on to every little thing that happens and finding ourselves with the heavy head syndrome. Our actual physical head feels so heavy we can hardly stand from being dizzy and disoriented thinking so much.
Have you ever gotten worked up over something that was out of your control? I mean really upset because in that moment you couldn’t do anything about what was happening, you could only sit/stand there and wait for the time to pass. Sometimes we allow preconceived notions to lead us to believe we know why a particular incident is taking place and from there we jump to conclusions and I mean jump into the deep end of conclusions. We think we know the answer when in fact we are in the dark until the reason of the matter comes to light. Sometimes we’re right and sometimes wrong. Either way, we get all worked up and upset because we just don’t know what is going on.
Then comes the hording of thoughts about everything and everybody. “Why is so and so this?” “Why me?” “Why can’t it be like this way or that way?” We build up so much in our minds that these thought bricks become heavier and heavier until “oh boy,” headache time, high blood pressure time, angry time, resentful, jealous, you name it! Just not a good time…ouch!
I do my best to let go of things out of my control. Like it or not, we cannot be in control of everything. I do my best not to let my mind get flooded overthinking. That only leads to a mental shutdown. Life is not perfect and life doesn’t always go exactly as we want and I’m not a behavioral specialist, so I can’t control someone else’s thoughts and actions. We just need to be careful and not allow ourselves to become heavy headed with so much. What is going to happen is going to happen. Life will continue from one moment to the next.
We can do our best to live, learn, grow and let go.
