Scattered

July 20, 2011

It’s a strange phenomenon that we can hear some things once and remember it always and other times we hear the same things over and over again and it still feels like the first time.

A friend of mine told me about a friend of his who sleeps surrounded by pillows so they can never turn over…this way there will be no wrinkles on the face.

I think about that every time I nestle my face in my pillow, which is at least twice a night. And then I think, “Well, I wonder how wrinkled that person’s back side will be?

Why is it this thought that stays with me and not the countless things I’ve read on keeping a budget and the advantages of IRAs?

I guess the thought of someone completely surrounded by pillows was such a great mental picture, it stuck with me. That, and when I noticed the little crinkle I’m getting because of burrowing my face into my pillow…

So…if you see negative OR positive results from something, it should help you remember to do it, right?

I’ve told you about how I set my cell phone alarm for everything. It’s annoying, but it has proven greatly effective for me. When I don’t do it, I completely forget things, such as chiropractor appointments, etc. (This happened just yesterday.) Why would I ever ignore what I know works for me?

I know sugar and caffeine have an extreme effect on me and I keep being addicted.

I have to read the Bible a zillion times for some verses to register.

Computer manuals are lost on me.

Names are starting to go in one ear and out the other, except movies stars’~ why is that?

If I could get my brain to work hand in hand with my will, what all could I accomplish?

  1. I can totally relate! These days I can’t remember the names of most everyone I meet. And the forehead wrinkles are getting deeper despite my crack-addict relationship with Estee Lauder.

    Lori, I think the problem with our internal memory system is that our built in computer mind is an older model, and all the information we have stored in there won’t allow us to be able to remember everything we want to remember on a daily basis.
