I guess you can say I’ve been lacking a bit of inspiration lately. Go figure, cake inspired me…
All afternoon, I’ve been trying to resist that left over red velvet cake in the fridge. After an intense and lengthy five minute internal battle with myself, I’ve surrendered. “Eat the damn cake”, right? I must say, it was a tasteful “loss”.
On with my point – It got me thinking, why wouldn’t I eat the cake? What’s it going to hurt if I have a sliver? Why am I even contemplating this? I realize this is a far-fetched comparison, but it relates back to overthinking and not following your heart, or in terms of my cake, not following your gut.
Why do we as humans overthink? We are without a doubt our very own worst enemies. It’s a toxic habit and does it ever lead to good? 10 out of 10 times, it exacerbates everything. Half of the time, you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there to begin with.
I hate that I’m bringing myself to this level, because literally every time I hear this term, I feel shivers throughout my whole body, but “YOLO”. Seriously, you only get this one short life. I will continually shove this spiel in all of your faces. If it doesn’t work out… oh well, there’s always next time. You can’t be afraid to open up and live a little. Don’t fear regret and don’t stress yourself out over pretty mistakes. Whatever is going to happen, is going to happen, and it’s completely out of your hands.
What that being said, live spontaneously – You’re not going to get a taste of success or a lick of satisfaction unless you take a bite of that damn cake!
