Thinking About Everything Life Offers

When you are sitting there alone, what do you think about.
Do you think about the future?
The past?
What to do?
your friends?
your family?
your sister?
your brother?
your lost love one?
your lost friend?
Or what about being in paradise?
Don't you love where your mind can take you?
Or how you can imagine talking to your best friend?
Or how you could be on a island watching waves crashing on the shore?
The sun is shining on you so why would you want to be sitting there thinking about stuff you don't have?
Do you have everything you want in life. Not material things, but friends, and family.
Or did you lose a friend or family member?
It's weird to have to imagine a converstation with someone who isn't there.
One of the great things about the mind.
But if you keep on doing that, it becomes a poison.
You might go into denial or go crazy because you want to believe that person is sitting right next to you and is talking to you.
Then you think that they're always there.
But in reality, they're not.
it hurts and thats one of the bad advantages of the mind.
Be careful on what you dream about.
