One Apple A Day #509 – open your hand1 min read

My mind is continuously wandering.
The more I try to stop it or keep it quiet, the more my mind escapes everywhere but here and now.
Until I start something.
This morning, I’ve sat here for ten good minutes trying to decide what I wanted to write about. In those ten minutes, I thought about everything. From distant memories to the things that I have to do later.
I couldn’t stop my mind from jumping from one thought to another.
Until I gave up, opened this file and started writing.
All of a sudden my mind came back here.
Sometimes, the more we try to do control something the more it eludes us.
Like when you clench your fist to hold the sand.
In that case, I’ve learned to surrender and let things happen.

Spread the love
