Find a home for your thoughts

The one thing that we do in abundance in daily life is thinking.

Thinking about ourselves, about others, about life around us, about life away from us…..we almost never ever stop thinking.

What if instead of forcing our thoughts to stop, we start looking for good homes for them. A thought can find a home in a personal diary, a blog, a story or an article. A thought can also find a home in a piece of architecture, a film, a dress, an automobile or a painting. What we need is to find them a place they can call home. A place where they find their purpose.

Just like ‘human resource’, thought is a resource and we need to employ it in a place where it feels like it is contributing to something bigger. We can do much more with our thoughts than to while them away over futile conversations or blurt them out in a tweet.
