Brain Dead Haven

Ever have a brain dead time and discovered you liked that feeling? I'm there now, just enjoying the quietness of brain deadness.

Seriously, it's like a mini vacation from all the to-do's on one list and from all the must-remembers on my other list. There's truly something wonderful about being free of thinking responsibly for a few hours every now and then.

If you haven't experienced brain deadness lately, I encourage you to try it. Take a break from all the pressures of your life for just a short while and get rejuvenated. If you need help, try and get in that state by concentrating on your breathing alone. Let everything else fall away, then see how long it takes your mind to wander into fun creative thinking.

Sometimes all we need to discover a jump start in writing, is to first be still and allow our brain to stop working for just a little while. I hope it works for you.

This is my unplug week, and I'm missing visiting all your blogs. I know I'm going to be crazy busy next week getting caught up. Can't wait! But certainly enjoying my family time presently too.


Surrendering to Him,

Eileen

I tell people all the time that they won't be able to hear what God is saying to them if they're listening to their own thoughts all the time!! Brain dead is the best place to be when you need a little inspiration from above! Enjoy it!
