I have to believe the awareness to ponder our own thinking comes at a cost. To what degree I’m not sure.
A bird sings her song in the early mornings because it’s in her nature. There’s no stress, stage fright or anxiety about how she sounds or what the crows may think. She belts out her tune over and over again as she goes about her day. After all, she’s a song bird.
Maybe we overthink a bit too much, which can lead to a whole lot of nothing. Maybe we should engage in more “doing” and let the chips fall where they may. Or sing our song loud and proud and not worry about what our audience thinks.
After all, if you have to sing, then sing.
