My mind is always working overtime. Occasionally I ask my husband what he is thinking about, and he answers “Nothing.” I look at him with obvious skepticism and he might in return ask me what I am thinking about (although he has learned the answer might be more than he bargained for ;).
My mental rundown can connect seemingly unrelated dots at an amazing speed. 27 ideas later in a mere 10 second time span, he stares blankly at me. Hmmmm, those thoughts made sense in my head anyway. Maybe “nothing” would be easier sometimes.
To be honest, keeping up with those thoughts is the equivalent of 2 full time jobs. Um, yeah. I already have the full time jobs covered.
I took a leap and signed up for an on-line month long scrapbooking challenge called LOAD. The commitment is one layout a day. Sounded fun, but what a challenge it is turning out to be. Each day my inbox shows a daily optional prompt which I love. Even though I really don’t have time to have added this one…more…thing…I am grateful to have jumped in. Each prompt has challenged me to think outside the box, slow down and spend time thinking in a focused way producing a daily tangible result. Today, the prompt asked what happens when life doesn’t turn out like you expected? That prompt gathered thoughts together worth recording.
