Don't Think About it So Much

I was sitting here tapping the keys trying to think of a subject about which to write. Tapping the keys seems to facilitate the creative process. It's like being on an elevator - you push a button to go to another floor and if the elevator doesn't launch you in the right direction, you find yourself pushing the button time and again. The rationale is that the elevator thinks that a lot of people want to go and it will hurry up. It took a while for me to understand that elevators are quite stupid and will not hurry up if you push the button a thousand times. In fact, the speed of the elevator is indirectly proportional to how late you are for a meeting. If you are early, it almost anticipates that you need a ride and the door opens with a welcoming DING. When you push the button it catapults you to the designated floor causing your stomach to churn like one of those parachute rides at Six Flags and you stagger off the elevator as if you were drinking. On the other hand, if you are in a hurry, not only does it take an eternity to reach you, it seems to wait around for ever just to see of someone else wants to ride. It also inevitably stops on every floor between you and the floor to which you are where was I going with this thought?
Oh yes, as I sat here tapping on the keyboard trying to get an idea, Jilda stepped into my office, kissed me on the head and gave me a Dove dark chocolate. When you open a Dove chocolate, there are quotes inside the foil. This one said exactly what I needed to hear - "Don't Think About it Too Much."
I had to smile as I read this little bit of wisdom. I immediately got the idea about tapping keys and elevator buttons. Thank you Dove chocolate you are just what I needed - in more ways than one.
