Yesterday my brain was racing. It felt like it was out of control! Thoughts kept coming, one after the other, piling up and competing for attention. Not a pleasant sensation. How could I be effective without focus? I went into the kitchen and started to do the dishes. Another thought then came across, only this time sort of like a voice suggesting that I quiet my mind. So I tried it, and it worked! My awareness was reduced to the dishes, and my calm breathing. What a revelation! Intentionally letting those thoughts go felt like such a relief. Each breath was like a wave of calm, and suddenly doing the dishes became a calming and somewhat pleasant activity. After that I was able to focus and get a few other things done. There was no more frenzy up there, no stray worries. I am going to try and do this every day!!!
