Have you ever felt that you, in every aspect of your life, is stuck or just on a standstill?
You keep looking around you to move forward, you open every door that’s offered to you just to find a brick wall on the other side.
In the end you find yourself inside your little box called life with brick walls around you. Stuck.
What do you do? Give up? Accept that this is how life is suppose to be now? Ignore it?
Whatever it might be that you use to cope for a little big longer you are still stuck.
When life turns on me the first thing I always do is go to sleep. Good things happen when you sleep. Your brain gets a chance to sort all your thoughts out, put them neatly into files with labels of importance, your body is relaxed and when you wake up you wake up to a organised and clean mind. Thoughts that used to bother you have been filed away in the junk folder and only what’s important is right there in front of you, in the primary folder with the “important” flag on the side.
Depending on the situation it sometimes takes a few nights sleep to achieve this.
During the days I find it important to keep myself busy with tasks that wont change anything. That wont solve the problem, have me endlessly think about the problem or move me forward or, very important, backwards.
The more time you spend during the days to think about it, the longer it will take for your brain during the night to sort out what you messed up during the day.
When will you know that your brain is done with sorting out your thoughts?
For me it’s very clear. I wake up early, rested, much like a morning like this and I can see the main issue right there in front of me. Everything else is irrelevant at that time and I know exactly what it is I need to concentrate on. I’ve stepped outside the box with the brick walls and can see life from a different angle.
