When you first learn how to do double unders, it’s like a 16 year old boy having sex. When you realize it’s actually happening, it’s over. .
Yes, that’s my opening.
Now let’s talk about flow and staying calm in chaos. Double unders remind me a lot of life. Basically when you tense, you break. There is a rhythm to double unders as there is life. If you stay relaxed and out of your head, you keep the rhythm and flow and suddenly you’ve done a hundred. But if you concentrate on every single jump and count, one hundred feels like swimming to the moon. So what does it look like in your life right now to stay calm in your turbulence? What does life rhythm and flow look like? How do you get that back? What state do you need to be in? What negativity do you need to cut that makes you - break. Who do you need to surround yourself with or not surround yourself with?
For me, staying calm means feeding and growing positive feelings and positive relationships. Starving negative thoughts and beliefs and cutting out negative and draining people creates the space to be calm through storms. But there’s one word that puts me in that state very fast. Serve. Serve at a high level. This doesn’t mean forget about you and your goals. This means to use your gifts to impact others. Focus and strengthen them not only for your story but others. In a nutshell, stop making it about you. That’s how you become a prism. A vessel, a messenger, a teacher, a a catalyst. When you don’t make it about you, you panic less. You have more courage. You flow. #awriterslife #theangrytherapist
