1 Thing You Can Do This Week to Clear Your Mind

Stop, look—but don’t listen.

Turn down the noise.

Enjoy the visual without hearing a view.

Be careful how you hear.

The light of the body is the eye.

Let it enlighten you.

Step away, where there is no sound.

Graze with your gaze.

Give your brain a sweet reprieve from polite listening.

In no time at all, the partly cloudy mind will brighten its corner.

Be clear, don’t hear.

Just for a while.

I Thing That Just Seems to Scare Fear Away

Don’t Keep Yourself in the Dark

Dark is the absence of light.

The absence of light is the elimination of illumination.

If the mind feels dimmed by bleak possibilities, it will manufacture its own conspiracy theories.

It’s not a difficult task. You might want to start by turning on more lights in the room. You’ll be surprised at how being able to see things more clearly cleanses the brain of apprehension.

Step outside.

Spread your arms and let the sun kiss you—a big burst of radiant energy all over your thirsty body.

How about this for stepping out of the darkness? Sit down and listen to your favorite songs from high school.

You can gain tremendous light by telling someone else they’re doing a great job. And it also lights them up.

And if you get really brave, confess your fear—but only to those with good cheer. Don’t tell scaredy cats that you’re nervous. They’ll give you another dozen reasons to shiver and shake.  No,

Find folks who are almost giggly and confess to them about your fear.

They will help you turn the lights on.

They will aid you on your mission, so you don’t keep yourself in the dark.

Your Life Story Should Tell

3.  Many characters—some adversarial—but an absence of real enemies.
