Yes, my brain is unbelievable.
So is yours.
We have a lot of thoughts scrolling endlessly through our brains – much of it nonsense.
But sometimes we think a thought over and over and over or it intersects with a situation and it turns into a BELIEF.
All through college I believed that I was pretty bad at math, but after graduation I easily passed some investment exams and then did really well on the MATH section of the GRE’s… hmmm
I believed that being chronically late was a dealbreaker for a relationship. Wrong again – I’ve been married to a late-nik for 33 years. Yes, he was late for our first date and it was the best decision I ever made.
I believed that it would be completely impossible to commit to a Vegan practice, and yet again I find myself doing the impossible for the past 8 years.
Or IS it impossible?
Maybe there is a lot less impossibility out there than we know. And by “out there” I mean outside our brains.
One thing I didn’t believe possible was driving the car solo from South Carolina to Rhode Island last Thursday -8am to a little after midnight. Not only was it possible but in spite of heavy traffic from Richmond north, I actually enjoyed it.
Amazing mental discipline, maybe, plus a LOT of podcasts which I promised to share from my iPhone. Yes a LOT of history interspersed with Veganism, travel and politics.
