Getting caught up in one’s own thoughts is down right dangerous. I am becoming more and more aware of it lately and OH MY GOD it’s awful!!! My mind is constantly wandering, constantly negating my abilities and constantly bringing me down! What is wrong with you mind? (Yes I am yelling at my mind right now) We’re supposed to be a team, not working against each other.
So what do I do? Well I haven’t got the slightest clue, so I am trying to bring myself back to reality, bring myself back to the moment that is in front of me. Even when I wake up I realize my mind is going from one thing, to something else to something else. The day hasn’t even started yet! Why do I have so much to think about already? The truth is I don’t have all that much to think about but I have gotten myself accustomed to being busy that when I’ not busy I make myself busy by making my mind race. (Man I said the word busy a lot in that sentence lol) It’s not healthy! It’s not healthy at all and I am tired of torturing myself.
You control who you are, you control your attitude, you control your environment. If I heard it once, I heard it a thousand times. Maybe it’s time to start taking control of what we’ve led ourselves to believe is uncontrollable. It’s time to take responsibility and hold myself accountable. It’s time to break free of my mind and use it only when I need it, to lift things up and put them down lol. Seriously though, I’m not going to let my mind wander into overdrive. Rest and recovery are so important for the body, we need to remember it’s important for the mind too.
