Since my A.D.D. mind sends me on all kinds of thought diversions, irrational exuberance is actually a very natural state for me.
The word "irrational" has gotten the short end of the stick lately -- I don't buy into the traditional definition with it's negative take on that word. Irrational can mean some wonderful things - like intuitive, creative, non-linear, expansive, non-restrictive.
Rational thinking is certainly not the be-all and end-all to true inner understanding, in fact, it often stands in the way of really feeling what something truly actually is.
It is the rational mind which tends to say I CAN'T, so why listen to that mind?
Instead, say I CAN. Be Irrational!
I challenge you to some irrational exuberance today.
In your art.
In your choices.
In your journaling.
In your life.
"You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition." --Alan Alda
