Sounds silly, right? Not to me. For me this is revolutionary. This week I was challenged for two weeks to stop – stop thinking, stop thinking about my thinking, stop beating myself up for my thinking, stop trying to fix my thinking – and to just feel.
I am an expert with other peoples feelings – but my own, not always so much.
I have read books and listened to experts talk about this. To just pause and notice.
I understood this but have never really done it. And now I’m going to do it for two weeks.
I will not use thought work to fix them, I will not meditate to try to avoid them, I will not do yoga to try to make them go away, I will not read books to try to figure them out.
I will sit with them and observe. That’s all.
I will feel my feelings. I will listen to my body – my heartbeat, my muscles, my stomach, my skin.
I am open to being an expert on my own feelings.
