If it is possible to fry your brain by processing too much data, on too many items, in too short a time frame, well let`s just say that I think my brain has hit its “turning to mush” point already this week. The amount of data flowing through my mind as I am trying to multi-task everything that is going on this week simultaneously is just plain ridiculous!
I typically pride myself on being able to keep large amounts of information organized in my head, but this week, I am fairly certain that at one point there may have been literal smoke coming out of my ears as my brain has now officially kicked into overload….
I heard the best quote the other day. It said “TV is the place you go when your brain wants to stop thinking”. SO TRUE! My husband often gives me a hard time for watching the most ridiculously pointless reality television shows that have very little redeeming value. He frequently asks, “How can a woman who is so intelligent and accomplished watch such mindless television shows?” I try to explain, “Don’t you get it? That is exactly why I watch them!” After having my mind work in overdrive all day long all I want to do is watch something totally ridiculous on TV that doesn’t require me to think at all! And if possible I want it to have a few totally crazy wives on the reality show so I can point to the television and say to my husband “Do you see how lucky you are to have me!? Just look at how crazy these women are! I am so easy to deal with compared to them!” Yes, it’s true- I love mindless television and I am not ashamed to admit it. Okay, maybe I am a little ashamed, but it’s the truth so I am going to just own it!
I wish like crazy that I could veg in front of the TV and watch mindless shows where my brain could shut down right now, but first, I must get through my own little “heck week (trying to keep the language clean here people 🙂 )” of multi-tasking and balancing all the balls in the air and trying to fix all the problems with the construction of my new home (I won’t say more because once again, I am trying to keep my language clean here people 🙂 ).
As bad as things have been this week, I have to remind myself of something I had written in a blog a few years back:
When things incredibly overwhelming in life just know that in a few more steps from where you are right now you will be able to stop and look back over your shoulder and see the INCREDIBLE things that you have accomplished in your life, so don’t let the fog you are traveling through make you forget the beautiful view in your rearview mirror.
And with that, it must be time to conclude today’s blog because I am definitely tired of thinking 😉
