What My Left Hand Said To Me

I’m reading (or maybe re-reading, it seems awfully familiar) Martha Beck’s book the Four Day Win. I’m at the part where she has you try writing questions with your dominant hand and answers with your other hand. First I felt really stupid. Then bored because as far as I could tell, my left hand was writing the same things my right hand would have written. I kept at it for a bit, maybe 10 minutes out of the recommended 15 and then something weird happened.

I wrote:

Stop Trying


You Are

Then I started to cry very, very quietly.

Afterwards I felt sleepy and oddly peaceful. 

I may have to talk to my left hand some more. Apparently there is something to this wacky technique after all.
