I will never forget the first time I read these words... it wasn't that long ago and it was one of the many aha moments we have when we're on the road to self discovery.
I'm not sure if it was the fact that it described what goes on in my head so brilliantly that struck me most, or the realisation that maybe there were others who felt the same way... maybe I am just "a creative person" and not insane after all. Maybe, just maybe I'm normal.
For me, along with creative you can throw in ambitious, sensitive, introverted and perfectionist with an anxiety disorder (there I've said it)... you can probably quadruple the number of tabs open on any given day. After nearly 50 years I'm still learning to live with myself and be comfortable in my own skin. I'm getting there.
So Getting Quiet is a biggie for me. I've dabbled with meditation over the years but I don't think its really stood a chance inside my head and I never gave it the time. Far too much chaos to meditate!
