don’t overthink it
Life is definitely not simple.
Life is intricate, messy, and complicated.
There’s nothing you can do to avoid it.
Just…don’t overthink it.
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pith and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.
-Shakespeare, Hamlet (Act III, Scene I)
Overthinking can mess you up.
It stops you from being naturally impulsive and passionate.
Doubtful thoughts start clouding your judgement, leaving no room for action, and then all of a sudden
BOOM, you’ll never end up doing what you wanted to do.
These playful illustrations by Javier Perez are great representations of simplicity in this complex world.
Perez takes everyday objects and draws around them, creating whimsical photos he posts on Instagram.
Overthinking things can get stressful, but these uncomplicated drawings are direct and straightforward; something you might need during those nerve-wracking points in your life.
