Overactive Brain Seeks Lazy Summer Days
I have overactive brain disorder... No, that is not a real disorder. However, my mind has been swirling for days! Somewhere over the past week, someone pressed the "random" button on my mental music player as well as the one for my thoughts. I've been bouncing from one thought to the next with no "pause" or "stop" button in sight. I'm also randomly singing songs that were buried deep in my memory, while having no idea why these melodies were popping into my brain. My dreams have followed along with this theme. I awake with such a strong sense of chaotic reality that I have to take a few moments to determine what is real and what is not. I believe that I've been trying to absorb, accomplish, and admire so much lately, that I temporarily lost my sense of focus and exhausted myself in the process! I'm very grateful for the fast approaching lazy days of Summer! Just thinking of how much less stressful my mornings will be is enough to slow my overactive mind and just breathe. As this change in seasons occurs I'm also wondering if my kids will turn into Phineas & Ferb. The ideas that start with "I know what we're going to do today!" followed by projects their mom would never allow. My boys are all for that kind of activity. Hmmm.... maybe my Summer will be busier than I thought. Either way, I'm looking forward to it!
