Free Fall Into Possibility

Surprise by Ashley Ambirge

I will not hide my tastes or aversions. I will so trust that what is deep is holy, if we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Think of a time when you didn’t think you were capable of doing something, but then surprised yourself.  How will you surprise yourself this week?

**I didn’t do the prompt about fear yesterday because I feel that it has been addressed in my other posts. 

I honestly don’t know how I’ll surprise myself this week. If I did, it wouldn’t be a surprise now would it? *insert my grin here

I really surprised myself when I taught myself coding and built my first website for the company I was working for at the time. Not only did it work, but it looked pretty dang good. It wasn’t a simplistic design either.

I have high expectations of myself. I always have so I usually expect to succeed at whatever it is I am taking on. I am very confident in that respect. No box – remember?

My issue is over-analysis. I need to stop doing that and just let go – allow myself to free fall into possibility more often. Allow for the surprises. That’s what I am going to try to do starting this week.

  1. Over-thinking is a real pain in the ass and I think it’s something we do because we like to try and plan for every inevitability which we need to realise is almost impossible! I’m so proud that you taught yourself coding and built a site and I’d love to see it – HTML and CSS have been things I have only dabbled in now and again.

    I love your manifesto: All for the surprises. Perfect.

  2. I love your goal for this week. My boyfriend tells me all the time that I spend so much time worrying and analyzing things that might never actually come to be, so I need to start leaving room for surprises too.

  3. Over-analyzing is almost a joy sometimes, the way it feeds itself. But if you don’t do stuff, you won’t have anything to over-analyze! 🙂 What a vicious circle. Bring on the surprises!

  4. Maybe over-thinking is a chronic symptom for all writers?! I suffer, as well. Another thing you could add to your “surprise yourself” is the way you’re kicking butt with kettlebells! Gonna give it another try in a bit, here. Wish me luck!

    My surprising moment, I think, was what I wrote about on my blog today. I’m generally a worry wart, and that I am already “letting go” is pretty amazing to me! Mind over matter. BTW – thanks for stopping by and giving me such support.

  5. I struggled with this one. I don’t like surprises; although, they seem to be the norm in my world. I’m a Christmas present shaker…no way I like surprises! I like the goal that you’ve set for yourself for the week. The idea of free-fall into possibility…what a nice way to look at it!
