Going Off Track

Have you ever had an image, idea or train of thought veer completely off track?

Never to be heard from again?

The older I become and the greater the stress at work and in life, the more I derail off the focused track.

Not to say that the totality of my thoughts haven’t survived, but there are bits here and there of, “OMG, where did I put that piece of paper? What is that girl’s name? What was I doing? Where was I going? Why can’t I remember sh*t?”

Can any of you relate?

Can you?

Yeah, I thought so.

This post has been brought to you by a train and…ummm…I don’t remember. If you are wondering what “One-Liner Wednesday is all about, CLICK HERE.

    Oh my, can I relate. I like trains, but if they were as reliable as my train of thought, I’d take the bus.

    You know that’s a thing, right? CRS. Yup, it sure is. And we are so on trend with it, too! Keep on truckin’, Mary.

      Yes, I know of the CRS. It’s an ugly thing, but I always say that’s why they invented Post-it notes and email/calendar reminders. I’d be forever derailed without either one.

    Every day – I chalk it up to information overload! You’re not alone in this feeling, that’s for sure!

      Long ago, a psychologist in our region called it “cognitive overload.” It’s funny, they say we only use 10% of our brains, but I wonder what would happen if we tried to use 50% or most of it. I think there might be an explosion of some sort.

      We’re in a special club, John. Shouldn’t we get a tax break or a free cup of coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts?

    My train derailed this morning…I’m quite certain I had a blog post idea that I loved sometime around 6am or so…no sign of it now!

    • bikerchick57 says:

      LOL! I don’t know how many times that has happened to me, and for some reason, I never think to write down the thought or idea. So silly and frustrating!

    My husband and I are always begging each other to allow our thought process to complete itself without interruption, lest we lose it. I get it.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      There seems to be many who “get it,” Cheryl. ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a wonderful day filled with retainable thoughts!

    Yes. And they tell me it only gets worse.
    Yesterday I walked into Mentor’s office and stepped right back out because my brain knew that was the wrong room for the thing. I went back to my office, because I forgot what room I was going to. Then, a few minutes later, I remembered I was thirsty. The kitchen! I was going to the kitchen! I went back to her office. “My brain forgot what we were doing, but I knew your office wasn’t the right room. I am thirsty. I am going downstairs to get water. Can I bring you anything?”
    Good mercy.
    And they tell me it only gets worse.
