My mind goes everywhere throughout the day. While I’m seemingly on-task at any given moment it’s incredibly likely that my actual thought is something non sequitur and random. I spent a week paying special attention to my inner monologue and here’s what it had to say:
Don’t eat all of the red onion in your salad/sandwich. Wait – check if you have gum first.
Get bangs. No – don’t get bangs.
You should wear more hats.
You probably don’t need to buy another backpack/purse.
Take up smoking. It’ll force you to take more breaks.
In 15 minutes you can have an M&M.
I haven’t had a really good cake in a while. What happened over the holidays?
Commit to your accessories!
After living this long without getting a tattoo, I think I’ll get one just because I’ve earned it.
Walk carefully — you’re wearing white shoes today.
I’m probably burning more calories than I think I am.
My mind as a weird little treasure trove of randomness! I like it. It’s honest and hilarious, if at least for my own amusement, and that makes it worth paying attention to.
Take a listen to your own inner monologue- does it surprise you?
