#NaBloPoMo: Day #25: Mind- Unburden your mind!



How I reverberate with this card. I am one of those who loves to make lists and feels very accomplished by just making one 😉 And yes I am talking about writing down on a piece of paper and not on an app or the phone. The actual act of writing down is liberating for me and many of my generation, I feel.

Of late, I have expanded this habit to one more aspect of my life. Whenever something is bothering me; for instance a relationship which seems to be going nowhere, I start making a pro and con list and then re-assess to see how important is this relationship to me, what am I getting from it, how devastated will I be if it gets over, etc etc. 9/10 times, I realise the relationship has been dead and over and I have been just reluctant to call it over as I don’t want to fail.

Same things when I want to buy something, travel somewhere, find a job , etc.

Physically writing down things help to clarify our thoughts, I believe. When I start to write down, a plethora of thoughts come swirling down like a gust of wind blowing down a chimney, rushing over the raging fire in the fireplace and then settling down as the momentum disperses. This is exactly what happens when the thoughts are put to paper, the urgency is dispelled and I realise I was making a mountain out of a molehill, yet once again.

I tend to keep this paper for three days; mull over it at least once a day and play at alternate scenarios, just to be sure of what I am seeing there. At the end of three days, I take stock, analyse and come up with a solution. I write it down and sleep over it for another three days – at the end of it, on day 7 I just know what I need to know.

And yes, I burn this paper up to remove any existence of this issue and to submit to the universe that its resolved.


Whats your say on writing down things? Do you make lists?
