“Paper is to write things down that we need to remember. Our brains are used to think.” ~Albert Einstein
My husband is always reminding me to write things down. I tend to have a millions ideas and thoughts running through my head continuously. Sometimes I can’t sleep because I am so excited about the things that are going through my head.
My husband told me that he heard a story about Albert Einstein and how he would write everything down. Anything that came to mind he would write down. He had many journals of thoughts and ideas that he kept record of.
Why did he do this?
Because when you write down all the things that are running through your mind it opens your mind to new ideas and thoughts!
No wonder Einstein is known as a brilliant man! The other day I was looking up interesting quotes to post on to the Facebook page for my job and I came across the quote that is written above.
So this is my new mission, I want to keep my mind open to new ideas and thoughts and also to what God is trying to speak into my life because generally my mind is too busy trying to think about what God may be trying to tell me instead.
So here is to setting my mind on things above (Col. 3:2) and filling my journal full.
