Do I Have a Problem?

I was lost this morning.

My mind was all over the place with all the things I needed to do, including writing.

The first thing I do when I wake up, after brushing my teeth, is breakfast. Aside from that, I woke up thinking I needed to make an important phone call. I was so worried and stressed about this call that I was cooking and on the phone at the same time. How crazy is that?

For all of those who are reading this, you know how much I love breakfast since I post about it every day on my Instagram. So how is it that I was doing something else while I was trying to cook and eat?

I was anxious and worried because I could not find a topic for today’s post, so I was browsing the web for ideas.

While I was browsing and looking for ideas, my mind kept wandering and not wanting to focus on just the one task. Is it safe to say that my mind likes to be in a multitasking mode? Not sure if that is a good or a bad thing.

I was thinking about what to post today, about what I was going to make for lunch and dinner, and about if I should just get a new lens for my camera? If any of you have any ideas on a good lens for a CANON EOS500D, please let me now.

I went from browsing the web about blog posts ideas to Amazon – where I found a lens that I wanted to buy, to YouTube, where I ended up watching Miley’s Cyrus new video Mother’s Daughter.

At that point I realized – why not just write about the craziness that is going on in my head?

I’m sure I’m not the only one with that problem.

I think that in today’s world, we can’t just be focused on one thing at a time. Time is going by so fast that even if we blink even once, we already missed a headline. Time is of the essence, some people say. To me, that just means that time doesn’t stop. And we don’t stop. We wake up and the first thing we do is check our phones for the Social Media update of the day. We don’t realize how many sunsets we’ve missed just because we were looking at our phones.

When I sat down to write, I placed my phone out of my sight.

Funny how even the simplest action will put your mind at ease. Our mind is being bombarded with information that our brain does not always have time to process it all. Which I think is what is happening to me right now.

We need to unplug and disconnect from the rush of our routines sometimes.

I know some people who say they can’t take time off because they are busy. Yes, busy is good. But does anyone think about how busyness affect the way we work or live? Is it possible to just be doing one thing at a time? I don’t think so.

We live in a world where things need to be done NOW. Missing a deadline, the bus or the train, or even being late for work, affect our daily lives. Because of the busyness, we might feel like there is no organization in the things we do. When your mind is all over the place that you can’t even focus on one task. It is hard, I know. But somehow manageable.

Advice on how to deal with a busy mind. Found on the Web.

Leave a comment if you have felt like this during the week or weekend and let me know how you dealt with the feeling.
