Well, I have been quite remiss in my entries of late. And I figured out why.
Too much doing, and not enough thinking.
Doing what? Like driving. Back and forth. To work and school. Dropping off at practice. Picking up at practice. Oh, and the drive-thrus.
Doing what else? Like talking on the phone. I don’t even know what about. I know that I shouldn’t talk while I am driving, but it has become mutually inclusive. And rest assured there is no thought going into these conversations.
Doing what else? Like furrowing my brow. There has been a bunch of brow furrowing going on for the past few months. Again, not a thoughtful kind of furrowing. Just that just below a boil worry. No great breakthroughs, because that would have meant there was some thinking.
Doing anything else? I will be damned if I could identify effective use of my non-thinking time. It seems like I am in a whirlwind of activity, yet little to show.
I think–hey! that’s a good start–that I will work to be a little more mindful. Using my mind rather than losing my mind. That feels better already.
