Brain No Longer On Vacation

How do you know your brain has gone on vacation without you? Easy. You find things that just make no sense and you can't figure out why it doesn't. This morning I found out my brain returned and is interacting with me again. How did I find that out? My Daily Bible Study. Usually if I find something that doesn't make any sense, I will say something to the person who posted it and they are always grateful I mentioned it. Not one person in the past week told me my daily study had a huge problem on it. Not that I get a lot of comments on it, but I thought with it as glaring as it was, somebody would have alerted me before I did the last chapter of Song of Solomon. For four of the past eight days, I had Ecclesiastes along with the chapter number, and right under it, Song of Solomon and the chapter. As I was working on it this morning, my brain engaged and I looked back to the other studies and saw my error and fixed it. When I posted today's post, I also fixed all the ones previous to it so they are all correct. So please, if you see something that doesn't make sense, tell me so I can correct it. It's frustrating when my brain is on vacation without notice, and making those glaring errors. At least it's all taken care of. I hope I remember that I'm going to be posting in Isaiah come tomorrow. Has your brain ever taken a vacation without you? Thanks for reading.

As we age, our brain takes vacations more often. I feel that to accept it instead of getting depressed by that shows that I´m still in charge up to a certain point.

It is good to accept the inevitable. I guess it's feeling like I'm not in charge that caused a lot of confusion.

@just4him Years ago, I could do several things at the same time. Now it is one by one and aided by lists

@marguicha I don't use lists, but I don't multitask either. Those days are gone.

My brain is in perpetual vacation. So I let my left hand and beard do the thinking for me!

It usually takes a vacation when I don't feel well, but every once in awhile it escapes without my knowledge.

Isn't it fun when it does that. You're left clueless as to what is happening, and don't have the capacity to reason it out properly.

Quite often. I make autocorrect boo boos all the time, just for one example.

Hello , I am also a strong reader of the Bible . I find it the most beautiful and valourous book of all time . You know , concerning books that I had in my hands , a very few deserve the label " great book " , " an immortal and eternal piece of literature . Very , very few , I would say . As it concerns the case of The Bible , it is a book that goes much beyond human capacities of writing and dissertations . So good luck , good luck , the fact that your brain goes out from you might be a signal the All Might wants to speak to you about .

It is a great book. I'm always ready to listen to whatever God would say to me.

My brain seems to do that a lot, especially if I'm tired.
