A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"A Whirlwind" by G.

How would you picture your mind? A lighthouse covered in mist? A club with people constantly dancing in it? Maybe a shining tower bathed in heavenly light…*snort*. Well I think that aside from all that, our minds are in a constant state of storm. A Whirlwind. Of thoughts and ideas. Of neurons firing and sending lighting-fast messages to the different parts of your body. The mind has been compared to a computer many times, but it’s obviously more complex. We don’t just make decisions. We also have emotions. Dreams. Imagination. And we can make what we dream into reality. And this is all raging in your head, right now. Now I can’t speak for others, but I’m always thinking, whether I like it or not. Sometimes I wish that I had an “off” switch for my mind. But only for a little while. My ability to think and dream is a special gift that I would rather not relinquish. But sometimes it’s hard to get this whirlwind in any kind of order. It could be so strong that it’s difficult to get the ideas you need out of it. With all the stress and worry in our lives, this isn’t very surprising. If only we could make our mental whirlwind more orderly. Maybe turn it into an assembly line and have all our thoughts lined up in neat little rows. But I would feel kind of like a machine if we thought like that. The beauty of having a whirlwind of a mind is that you never know what amazing ideas could result from it. There is some order to the chaos. But whatever you picture your mind as, don't take it for granted. Let the whirlwind get to work for you.
