Unmanaged minds are everywhere,
Swerving from side to side,
Like a car being driven
By a distracted driver,
Only one close call
Away from disaster.
An unmanaged mind does to brain chemistry
What an uncontrolled plane does to flying —
Run wild until it crashes.
If you don’t actively program your mind
For peace and happiness,
It will meander into much misery,
And compel you to medicate yourself.
“We’re living in times when hundreds of millions of people can only get through the day by relying on prescription drugs to treat depression and other emotional disorders. Dependence on nonprescription drugs and alcohol, especially among young people, is also rocketing. So too is the rate of suicides.” –Ken Robinson Ph.D.
Perhaps it would be wise to manage your brain and force it to focus on things that bring you peace, contentment, and joy.
