My mind is all sorts of running wild right now.
When this happens I can't focus. I can't read. I can't process. You can say something to me and I'll need you to repeat it a time or two.
When I get like this (and that doesn't happen very often) I need to slow down. But, not in the sit in quiet solitude and meditate. I still need to be busy, just deliberate in my efforts. So, I've been doing this:
No painters tape.
I've been painting freehand with a watercolor brush.
Because when my mind races I may not be able to read an entire sentence but I can draw the straightest line ever.
So, I've been putting that to good use around the house. Next up, the front door.
