This strikes a chord with how I have been feeling these days - spending so much time thinking about what I should be doing and whether my decisions are right, and in the process preventing myself from doing much at all. Suspending myself in my over-processed thoughts, doubts and hesitations, and all the while preventing myself from living to my fullest in the moment. 

I know I am strong, but sometimes my strength can be an affliction. I am intelligent, but sometimes my mind can be a burden.

So. May I carry this through my day - here’s to being unreasonable, to being passionate, to bowing down to my own humanity. I think I may surprise myself.
