“The mind is like a muscle – the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets and the more it can expand” – Idowy Koyenikan

Lately it has been difficult for me to set my mind towards a positive mindset. I have been feeling overwhelmed for various reasons and some unknown ones. For now and I have been finding it hard to accept that I am feeling this way. Today, when I saw this quote, I thought it was pretty well said. The mind is a muscle and just like when you stop exercising your muscles shrink, well so does the mind. The mind fascinates me, but altering the way we think, is most certainly challenging. However, it is doable and to do so I will try to remember to light my mind up as much as I can because it is always worth it to experience the power of MIND / MATTER. 


Recently, I was given a great book of poetry by Emily Dickenson and I remembered that I had read this poem about the mind a little while ago.

Here it is: 

A Thought went up my mind today
A Thought went up my mind today —
That I have had before —
But did not finish — some way back —
I could not fix the Year —
Nor where it went — nor why it came
The second time to me —
Nor definitely, what it was —
Have I the Art to say —
But somewhere — in my Soul — I know —
I’ve met the Thing before —
It just reminded me — ’twas all —

And came my way no more —


Be wYse,
