Ever felt like your fishing inside your head? As in inside your brain? You just know the thought, the answer, the reason you are after is in there somewhere but for the love of god you just can’t find it and it irritates you to no end. Well, today is that day for me!
So there I am sitting at my desk, staring at my screen, hands on my head. Nothing is coming to me. I feel like I have a fishing rod in my hands which stands up over my head, the tip being directly above the top of my skull. A line drops down and through a hole in the top of my head. At the end of that line is a hook and on it has a piece of bait. That bait is the questions I’m asking to the answer I’m trying to find.
Inside my head the thoughts are swimming round like too many goldfish in a bowl. There are HEAPS of thoughts, thousands of them, none of them I can quite make out because none of them are catching, nothing. Not even the bad ones are taking the bait, not even the ones you are willing to throw back!
I tug at the line, nothing. Then I stop & think, maybe my bait has gone? Maybe my bait is the wrong type? I question, how can I get the right bait on my hook to catch the answer I want? I wind my line in, I sit back and think. Nothing is coming to me. I decide to get up, get away from my desk and take some time out from fishing in my own head.
While I was away, my thoughts were active, they started coming to me freely and I struggled to write them down quickly enough. I sit back at my desk, my rod goes up again and I start catching thought after thought. It all now seems so easy.
Have you ever been in this situation? Where you know the answer is in your head but you just can’t find it and you feel like your fishing in your own head?
