I am being driven insane lately by my very own brain. Admittedly, my brain has always had more energy than my body, but recently it's completely out of control. It feels as if thoughts, ideas, and words are swirling around all of the time, not necessarily in any order, or for any specific reason.
What book will I read next? What should I knit? Should I start something new, or work on the many things underway? Maybe I should give myself a manicure. Oh I know, I'll write a letter! There's a movie I really want to watch. If I fixed some things ahead of time, I'd have some dinners for the week prepared. Don't forget to bake gingerbread muffins soon. Wow there's a lot of laundry! I love tea. Should I pay bills now or later? I need a pair of brown shoes. Will Zach like his birthday presents? I wonder what I'll do now that I will need to find a new place to get my hair cut.
You get the idea. Take those things, speed them up approximately 200%, add in about 50 more things per minute, and welcome to my brain. OK, it's good to have an active mind. But when my mind is this active, I am nearly paralyzed - I don't know what to do, can't concentrate very well, and as a result, accomplish very little.
Fortunately, this doesn't happen for any extended period of time very often. I wonder if it happens to other people very often, if at all.
Hopefully, my brain will return to its usual organized and often fixated self soon. In the meantime, I wouldn't mind running out of things to think about ...
