Thanks, Michael! This post outlines a core internal battle that I have been fighting for the past few years now, as well. I think many of us are beginning to realize that we view thoughts as weighing us down because we give them so much power. Tony Robbins helped me with his game changing quote (He may have coined it from someone else), “stay in your head, your dead”. Adopting a mindfulness practice like meditating for 9 minutes a day has helped me realize that thoughts are just thoughts. Taking action is the only way to really learn and experience the joy and fervor that life can create!
