Waiting for the pause

They talk.

We think as they talk.

We wait for the pause.

We hear.

We think again, when is our chance.

We are on the starting blocks.

We are chomping at the bit.

They pause.

We’re in.

Our chance to stand on the podium.

Our chance for the limelight.

Our chance to talk and perhaps only be heard.

We hear but we didn’t listen.

We are always waiting for the pause.

Think and do the opposite

Want to sleep and can’t? The harder we try to will ourselves to sleep the harder it becomes.

Just do the and think the opposite, will yourself to stay awake, try to stay awake.

You will fall asleep.

It’s a way of relaxing and not pressuring about the outcome.

The harder we try to create an outcome it brings a negative resistance.

Let go, think and do the opposite, whatever that is, it releases all the tension and then the outcome is not the focus.
