What Was I Thinking?

I was thinking about something the other day.
Now I’m thinking,
I wish I knew what I was thinking.


I think, I thought, I did.

Reality, Thinkr8

What Is Reality?

Reality Is Information!

Two weeks ago I stumbled upon this video on YouTube while I was doing some computer research. Ever since I watched the entire 30 plus minutes of it, I’ve been thinking about the possibility of the past, present, and future existing at the same time.

I admit I can’t wrap my head around it.

If you’re like me and love most thing’s scientific then you’ll like this video too.

With this said, five seconds ago the past influenced this post in the present, and the future.

Huh?

Reality is information (a data stream).

After watching the video join the conversation and tell me what you think about the story (information) in the video.
Thank you.

Thinkr8 is about thinking, and this is really something to think about.

ThinkrFay, Truth Told

What About Stress? – Stress Is Hell!

Stress is many things to many people.
Go ahead and ask your friends what they find stressful.

  1. Getting my work done in a timely manner.
    2. Staying on top of all of the things I gotta do.
    3.  Paying bills – trying to stay debt free!
    4. Trying to please those people who are never pleased about anything.

I bet everyone can add to this list!

Throw all of the stresses into one’s life:
IT is enough to depress anyone. Depression, loss of a loved one to death or broken heart. Depression due to a chemical imbalance in one’s brain.

Depression brought on by wrong thinking…or by overthinking every last thing!

Wrong Thinking deserves its own paragraph.
How many of us put a great deal of thinking into every last thing we set out to do.
How many times do we fail at a task, or assignment? And we still insist on rethinking what we already know – as if testing a theory over and over again and expecting a different outcome – makes any damned sense at all??

How ABOUT trying to live “up” to expectations – when they are not UP; but, DOWN?
How about trying to please someone who is never pleased? How about doing what needs to be done, because nobody else will do it – but you? And then you are criticized for every last thing you did because you did not do it according to someone else’s expectations
[ even tho the job got done]

Drip Drip Drip, opinions like water wearing away our self image until we have nothing left? Now take out the word: Depression and replace with whatever task you are trying to do. It is like putting one more rock into the bag you are trying to carry on your back, until we feel like we are carrying the Woes of the World on our Shoulders.

Picture Atlas holding the World on his shoulders.

Stress is Stress and it all adds up to a bag full of crap that has holes in the bottom, and we are soaked in it!

STRESS SUCKS.
IT BITES.
STRESS IS LIKE QUICKSAND, and there is no hope of a bottom to that pit.
STRESS IS HELL.
