I’ve been thinking about this a lot. I feel like it’s something really hard to explain, but I’m gonna try to do my best since something that I feel like I’ve experienced a lot, more so in thee last two months or so. Now, one thing I know for certain about myself is that I zone out…a lot. I’m not just talking about in like a maths class. Just in everyday life and in general scenarios. It’s become a daily occurrence and it’s something that I don’t always realize I’m doing.
It’s really strange ’cause most of the time I’m not even aware that I’ve just zoned out. For example: (my school friends will know what I mean by this) but I’ll maybe just be writing and then just slowly stop and just sit there, staring into the distance for a good while before I snap back into reality and then we all just burst out laughing (hehehehe!). Though, sometimes I’m just unaware so for so long that I begin to realize that I’ve zoned out. But even after I’m aware, I just can’t be bothered to zone back in. (please tell me I’m not the only one). My point being here is that I find that I live in my head a lot, in my thoughts.
Now to be honest, I haven’t gotta clue whether this is a good thing or a bad thing really. I mean, it’s good for my creativity and all but I don’t know if it’s good for me as a whole.
My thoughts take me all over the place. Put me in good moods or in bad moods. Sometimes they make me hopeful and wishful, then other times they make me feel worried, on edge or stressed. One day my thoughts will convince me that I’m that person in those inspirational quotes who say stuff like I’m strong, I’m positive, I’m stress-free etc. Then other days it will take me to the complete opposite.
I think that I will go into over-thinking // over-analyzing in another post but sometimes my thoughts can lead to me think bad things are gonna happen. Or that I’ve made the wrong decision in a situation. It can make me question things. Make me wish that I could’ve done something small different to make my day better. All in all my thoughts take me everywhere. Kinda reminds me of the movie Inside Out ya know, where there are little feelings in your head that control your emotions.
Despite the negatives of my thoughts sometimes, I feel like they can be really uplifting too. I’ve been trying to find one thing each day to bee happy about and it’s really been helping me to stay more positive as it gives me something to look forward to.
I still haven’t come to the conclusion of whether constantly being in my thoughts in a good thing for me or not. I mean I’m so used to it now that I don’t think of my day any differently when I do it. Like I even had a moment the other day, where I just felt so different and just free since my mind hadn’t found anything to stress about that day and it was great. I’ve been trying to not get so caught up with all the antics that go down in my head and stay in the real world. I’ve found that my thoughts can escalate quite fast and when they do so in the wrong direction, it’s not too good. I know that this post was really out of the ordinary but I felt so comfortable writing this. More open, chatty advice posts really just seem to flow when I write them so you may see them around here more often if you liked this one.
Let me know in the comments if you have any experiences of being constantly caught up in your thoughts or if you liked this style of post. We can just have a good old chat! I’m currently on my Easter Break (whhoooo!), when do you guys finish school, college or uni for Easter? All that’s left to say is I shall speak to you all next week!
