Thoughtful Thursday – Totally Rambling!

Map of my brain this morning!This is a road map of my brain this morning. If you can figure out where my brain is going, please let me know.

I’m distracted by so many things and suffering from too little sleep. My mind is flipping through so many questions from things that are totally banal (Why was the coffee so strong this morning?) to the amazingly important (Is my money safe in the bank?).

While my brain rambles on occasion, I find that it’s happening a lot more often lately. I’d like to think that it’s because I’ve got too many things on my plate and know that there’s only a couple of things to do to deal with brain drain and get back on the right road.

The first is to get rid of those things bringing negativity into my life. I am a true believer that success comes to those who stay positive. Of course, it’s sometimes impossible to stay positive about some things and when it is . . .

Get rid of what’s causing the negativity because it’ll drag down all other aspects of your life.

What’s the second thing to do? Focus. Concentrate on what needs to get done. Emphasis on NEEDS. NEEDS means, must do. Not, it would be nice to do.

For me that means, family first. Next, obligations to my two jobs, namely dealing with work and writing deadlines. Last, a moment to relax.

Do you ever find yourself with a similar road map of your brain? If you do, what do you to revitalize and refocus yourself?

  1. If I need to refocus, I usually put on some music. And dance and sing around in my bedroom. Then take a bath or a shower. Put on a favorite movie or tv show of mine to get lost in for a couple of hours. Distracting my mind on other things gets ideas percolating again. Brings me back to focus.

  2. Has anyone read Eckert Tolle’s “A New Earth”? I’m trying like heck to stop the voices (negative) in my head. Basically what you said – concentrate on the now. The past is over and the future isn’t here and our lives are the present (moment to moment). Easier said then done but it all starts with one step 🙂

  3. I thought brains that looked like that was normal. We all feel that way sometimes. My good friend makes mine that way. If she wasn’t my friend, I swear I’d push her over a cliff. She is the most insecure person I have ever known. We are supposed to go on a trip tomorrow but if she calls one more time with a new change of plans, I’m cancelling and staying home. There, I’ve vented enough. Have a great week-end, let you brain and body rest and just let the negative stuff slip away. Hugs to all.

  4. Ah, happy thoughts! Would he be sent whole or in pieces? Even happier thoughts! LOL! Can you tell I’m getting into murder and mayhem mode for my next book?

  5. …”Get rid of what’s causing the negativity …”

    Well, I’ve filled out two job applications this week…I suppose that’s a start. The other option would be to take my boss, put him in a cardboard box and ship him overseas…(ah, happy thoughts…)
