Daily Prompt: Simply the Best
When and where do you do your best thinking? In the bathroom? While running? Just before bed, or first thing in the morning? On the bus? Why do you think that is?
‘Best’? I do my best productive thinking after I’ve been lazy for a while and then take a bath and eat something delicious and feel rested and ready to go. I do my best negative thinking after I am in an unclear social situation. I do my best practical thinking after updating our budget and organizing the office (a bi-weekly event). I do my overall best (as in personal favorite) thinking when I sink into that perfect state of enlightened oblivion/bliss. It takes hours of saturation in music, art, my favorite clothes and shoes, and a wave of self-confidence and/or personal intrigue.
When rested, I think productive. When depressed, I think negative. When productive, I think practical. When in my favorite state of mind, I do my favorite thinking. Although an independent person, I am hyper-sensitive to situation. I adapt. I think as I do.
I would like to find a way to stay in my favorite state of mind more often, but it takes all pieces of my mental state to keep me going. So while I’d love to live in my inner creative oblivion, my productive, negative, and practical selves provide my livelihood and keeps my creative side sane.
