Wandering the Paths of My Mind

I've been thinking a lot lately...Dangerous past time...thinking...it tends to led us off in directions perhaps best left alone.

  1. I've been thinking about people and what motivates their behavior and honestly....the only time I think about that is when their behavior is annoying, frustrating, unbelievably stupid, insensitive, or irrational.....or perhaps some other things...but you get the point...usually something with a negative connotation.
  2. I've been thinking about clutter...yes clutter...lol....REAL clutter and how it sucks the life out of us, EMOTIONAL CLUTTER and how its probably the hardest to get rid of, MIND clutter and how we juggle so much stuff in our heads...it gets overwhelming...
  3. I've been thinking about legends and lore and how most of the time there's some level of truth to them...it's just sorting out what is what. Stories handed down through the ages are the most colorful and thought provoking.
  4. I've been thinking about what's fair and what's not and how sometimes...just sometimes our whole lives come down to just one decision, one word, one choice, one moment woven in time...that changes or impacts our whole sense of direction, that colors everything that comes after it, and erases all that comes before it. But also about how seriously we TAKE everything....years from now things that filled our minds and hearts will just be tiny dust particles of the past...and we will wonder why they consumed so much of our lives and times...when later they lack importance at all.

So ponder those for a bit...I'm off to work and I'm sure there will plenty more to think about later..
