Head in a spin like a washing machine?
Head in a spin, like a washing machine? Airing my experience on hanging it out to dry. I can only compare my mind most days to that of a washing machine. A constant whir, with a mixture of unidentified thoughts, ideas, worries, unwritten lists, unticked off actions, dates I've mostly remembered too late . In amongst all that grey I can see some thoughts leaping round and round, vibrant in colour, but yet still going round and round and round. Wouldn't it be lovely, I daydreamed, if I was able to open the door, lift them all out, pin them on the line in a freshly blowing meadow and watch them out the window while I would sit silently and enjoy a cup of tea and a chocolate digestive free of them all? So I set myself a challenge, everytime I realised I had left my mind machine on and it was beginning to go into overdrive, I sat still and pretended to open the door and hang them all out to dry. And what I learnt was; 1. I tend to wear (think, worry) about the same things everyday; 2. It felt bloody good to do that type of washing, in fact I can honestly say I've got quite hooked on it and do a couple of loads everyday! I wanted to share my little personal experiment in case anyone else has a mind like a washing machine and could benefit from trying to put it out to dry. I have ended up not only learning about myself a lot, but laughing about it too and I now have time to play in that meadow as well as having a nice quiet cuppa!
