Think or not to Think….
…That is the question!
I have noticed myself “thinking“ during these hot summer days...
…About life and health,
About family, past present and future,
About what lies ahead in this path of life I am on.
About what lies ahead, for this old world.
Then I noticed that my thinking has turned to pondering.
Ponder: Verb, to think about something carefully, esp. before making a decision or reaching a conclusion.
Hmmm, I ponder the definition of ponder. I chuckle at myself for pondering the mere definitions of ponder.
Must be the heat getting to me. That’s what the old timer’s would say. It’s the heat.
As I sit and ponder, I notice my body stills, my breath slows, and my heart beats relaxed.
I actively ponder. My mind is being exercised. Opinions form, ideas are created, memories come, goals made.
I conclude thinking that leads to actively pondering is good for the soul. Good for the self.
