Sometimes the answers come when we aren’t thinking
Shut your eyes—stop looking for a second—let yourself feel your way to an answer.
Some of my best work happens when I’m not planning for any outcome in particular. I’m walking down the sidewalk. My brain is spinning a million miles an hour. I stumble over my shoe. I trip over a crack in the pavement. Whatever happens, it happens enough to jostle my brain and wipe it clean for two seconds.
Those two seconds of complete silence are miracles, because when I come back to reality, I always meet something that propels me forward. I see my dreams clearer and I have a new perspective I’d simply been thinking too hard to see with my eyes.
I guess I’m still so tickled tonight, because I’ve found two great people who are helping me reach my dreams. I found them by accident. I found them when I wasn’t thinking.
