A Thought

A Perspective

You’re speaking aloud in your head, yet silently protesting against people around you; commenting about the lack of sleep you get as you wake in the morning to how you could start getting up earlier to stop you from always running late to get to work, or any event for that matter. You pass opinions to mates about the idiotic headlines on the news, discussing with the boss ways to work more smoothly.

There’s barely any time for silence in these minds that constantly think. When not focused on getting that paycheck, thoughts shift to the last image reflected off that full length mirror: no matter how accurate or blurred, morphed or made up. Thinking of the next diet, the next workout; core, weights, cardio or yoga? Adding up calories, looking at that chocolate muffin but then picturing yourself with a non-existent muffin top. Deciding what next to wear; judging yourself as you judge the entire store from this corner of the shop window. Paranoia or just looking after yourself?

After the bills, after the gym memberships, protein shakes and vitamin supplements, the next group of thoughts get spent on therapy. You can either see a psychologist; or socialise, party and relax with family and friends, or both. Single or married. In a group. On your own. As a couple. On your own.

When silence comes, thoughts still exist. What do you think about when you have a moment to scribble and ramble about everything else in this world? These ideas, these beliefs, these plans may be spin-off thoughts from other parts of your day or from stories shared with you by family or friends. They can resemble something crazy like the what if’s from the naive dreams of teenage years refined by experiences and adult common sense.

It can be anything … so think, share and enjoy this precious gift :)

    Hey love of my life =)

    I think about .. these ridiculous big dreams where I can travel and take photos and write. I think about a job where I’m switched on 24/7 just because I love it that much.

    Too bad I don’t have the persistence to pull it off !
