Life has a way of sorting itself out.
This is one of the biggest ones for me. I’ve gotten a lot better at keeping myself from overthinking.
I sometimes used to find myself conflicted with decisions which at the time seemed like some of the biggest decisions I’d ever have to make; what's interesting about it now is that I was in a hurry to make a decision which didn’t need answers at that point.
They were more often than not hypothetical situations which I had created in my own head, then proceeded to panic and overthink them; however when the options that presented themselves were more concrete and I now had to make an actual decision, it became clear to me what I truly NEEDED to do.
You will always make the best decision for you if you wait for the options to actually present themselves, things become phenomenally clear.
Now I wait, I don’t start planning the surf before I’ve seen the wave and I don’t start thinking of what I “might want”, if I just wait a bit longer the decision goes from what it “might be” to what it is.
When it gets to that point, the answer becomes clear for you.
In simple terms, overthinking is in many ways you trying to control or predict life, life will happen regardless, it can’t be controlled and why spend time trying to predict what’s next rather than living what’s now?
What you can do is wait for the wave to come your way and then judge how you will surf based on what you see, don’t plan the surf before you’ve seen the wave.
