Do you every find yourself wishing for peace from your racing mind? I do all the time. My mind is always focused on something other than myself. For example, lately my wife and I seem to argue all the time. I find myself only at peace when she is gone to work and I have the day to myself. But even when she is gone and I’m supposed to have peace, my mind is constantly racing with thoughts and ideas. Everything I need to do; yard work, grocery shopping, homework, the menstrual cycle of a gopher etc. Except I find myself shutting down and just sitting on the couch listening to music trying to drown out the noise inside my head. Accomplishing nothing! My life has become groundhogs day.

My mind is constantly racing with thoughts and ideas
