I heard the Eagles song today, “Take it easy” and it reminded me that it had prompted me to write a post several years ago….It is still a issue that I am constantly working on. Thought I would share it with you.
I am always worrying about things…it make my head ache!
When you are going about your normal day, what is your mind doing? Is it with you or is it against you? I don’t know about you but my mind is constantly chatting. The only time it is not is when: I am asleep; I am really focused on a task or when I am listening to others. The rest of the time my mind is tuned into “my own internal chatter station”. I tell you it is one busy station. My issue is, that I have come to realize that a large portion of “my chatter station time” is spent worrying/concerned and just plain overthinking. I can go for hours worrying about a friend’s problem, a family member’s situation, how to fit too much in to my day/week, work issues etc…….I have realized that I am creating my own…

I’m learning to stop thinking so much and just be. One day we’ll get there 🙂
Love, light and
Me too Michelle and Eliza. I’m getting better at just letting things be and flowing. I guess better late than never.
Sounds like wisdom is improving for us all. I am definitely a work in progress and have to remind myself, but life is so much better when you let go and go with the flow. I am trying to teach my daughter this as she definitely has my “thoughtful” gene. Thank you Michele and Eliza for popping in xxx
That is me to a tee! While I am trying to focus on something my brain is spinning out of control thinking about a gazillion other things. I really do have trouble trying to concentrate at times.
When it interfers with my work, I find that listening to my favourite music often helps, as my distracted side then focuses on the music, while I can focus on the job I am trying to do. I discovered this by accident while at University many moons ago, it works.
Hi Tony and welcome to my site. I LOVE music and like you I get a bonus of it helping to refocus my mind. I love to sing along – cant think about other things while I am singing. PS I cant sing for nuts. I am working from home 90% of the time whilst in COVID19 land and I luckily live in the country so my music is often blaring as I work away.Take care.
I completely agree with this wonderful and true post of yours, Michelle. My brain and thoughts too many a times goes on buzzing and buzzing and then literally I have to tell my thoughts now enough and then for sometime go in a relaxation mood but overall mind is chattering and chattering.
Same here…..it is and I do the same as you…say that is enough and use some sort of relaxation, mindfulness or distraction to shift gears. Definitely a constant work in progress. Thanks for stopping by xxx
Yes Michelle a constant work in progress and we surely have to work very hard. You are welcome dear.
