Just One Question

Let me ask you a question:

What are you thinking about right now?

Are you thinking about what you have to do? What you should have done already but you haven’t done yet? Are you thinking about something you did that you wish you hadn’t done or perhaps done differently? Are you debating whether you should do A, B, or C or perhaps stay in bed and do none of them at all?

It takes some time to think these things through, I know. So please come back to this post once you’ve finished thinking. Come back when you’ve decided what you’re going to do (or have already done it). Come back when you’ve turned over an issue of your past, looked at every angle of it and are satisfied that you can let it go, so that you never have to think of it again. Come back when you’ve chosen A, B, or C or have decided to call in sick and stay in bed all day.

Come back when you’ve done any of the above. Don’t worry, this post will be here when you get back. It can wait.

Finished? Great. So let me ask you the same question again:

What are you thinking about right now?

Are you thinking about what you have to do? What you should have done already but you haven’t done yet? Are you thinking about something you did or didn’t do that you wish you hadn’t or perhaps done differently? Are you debating whether you should do A, B, or C or perhaps stay in bed and do none of them at all?

Sound familiar?
