Thinking Too Much
A thought can get trapped in my brain and swirl around in there, growing larger as more ideas attach to it. I can almost feel some thoughts as they accumulate and grow heavier, taking up more space than I want them to.
Here is a recent example which grew increasingly larger over a few days' time...
I started with this thought: If I could have or do or be anything for an entire day, anything I wanted, what would I choose? Would I want time to myself or would I choose to have/do/be with others? Should I choose something selfish or something that would benefit those around me?
And then it grew: What if it was for a week? A month? A year? Would my choices be any different?
And turned into this: How about if it was for the rest of my life?
Which brought on this conclusion: Shouldn't that be what I'm choosing right now? Am I?
Sometimes I just think that I think too much.
