restingpieces Posted April 15, 2010 Share Posted April 15, 2010 ...and after WaterworksGate 2010 last night, I felt kind of like a zombie version of myself last night/earlier. I was about to start crying mid-morning and then I realized: Woman, you are so all over the place; forget this. While, yes, I'm going to be sensitive to my feelings and embrace them (and I am a huge advocate for everyone else here to do the same) but I can't let them dictate my entire day like I have been. I've already cancelled some of my tour dates so I can't really take those back, as much as I'd like to now. But I physically, in that moment, got the heck up, took a shower, took the time to blow dry my hair, put on one of my favorite dresses and get to work. Unfortunately, I've literally been suffering from writer's block all day. I suppose because despite my positive attitude, I can't help that my mind feels drained. However, to cheer myself up because I refuse to let my mind wander back to the negative, I started working on something else - something completely bizarre and not particularly appropriate for the stage. It literally had me cracking myself up. (Yes, I was pulling an Eddie Murphy and laughing at my own jokes.) But, anyhoot, I told a fellow "coworker"/friend what I was working on and it turned into this all out brainstorm fest and he said if I took a few weeks to produce all the work, he would finance a self-publish. Geeky. But literally taking control of the day somewhat led to a next step. Moral: BE PROACTIVE and tell yourself to STOP when you think of them - save it for later. Even a day of it can produce great benefits. This post is courtesy of the stop thought treatment. Link to comment
