Hip Hop Affirmation of the Day#331
“First you ignore the nonsense and clear your conscience, let your pen touch the paper write verbs and consonants.Â As the words become a sentence you start to feelin’ different.Â The stress is out of your mind, you feel like the weight was lifted.” ~People Under the Stairs (Acid Raindrops)
Listen to the Hip Hop Song: Acid Raindrops
Affirmation of the Day: I clear my mind daily
The People under the stairs hit the nail on the head with this lyric.Â Have you ever had a tough time falling to sleep because there was just too much on your mind?Â Use the technique from the lyric above and it will help to put your mind at ease.Â Getting thoughts out of your mind and onto paper frees up your mind.
Note, your mind racing is not always tied to a negative thing.Â I’ve had times when I could not sleep before a big presentation or workshop because I could not wait to get out there and “Put it on ’em.”Â I had all kinds of thoughts on words I was going to emphasize and gestures I was going to make with my hands, etc.Â When I put those thoughts on paper it was as if it transferred from my brain and onto the paper.
Try keeping a pen and pan near your pen and let me know how it works for you.
Question of the Day: How do you clear your mind?
Action of the Day: Get a journal and a favorite pen.
Run the Point, from where you are, with what you have!
