Chasing My Thoughts
My mind often keeps me awake at night, (actually, it keeps me awake most nights) racing with the thoughts of the day. Sometimes I just lie here trying to catch up to everything running around in my head. Usually, I can grab hold of a few of them and ponder on them for a while, but most I eventually file away or allow them to hopefully evaporate on their own. It’s important for me to clear my head by meditating on the things occupying my mind. If I can at least think them through, they don’t just continue to bombard me all night. Maybe for you, it’s a different method of coping that gets you through the night. To be honest, after I process most nights, I then prioritize my thoughts and begin to write them down. I used to just write a couple of sentences down to get certain things out of my head. But in the last few years, I’ve discovered that blogging was a better avenue for me to use. It became therapeutic, not only for me but to those who take the time to read what I have to say. I hope the words I write will be life for you. I hope they help you. I hope they lead you to peace. I hope you find what works for you whether it be meditation or writing or painting or whatever suits you. It took me a long time to find what worked for me. I was 45 when I found my voice. I hope I somehow can inspire you to find yours.
