Thoughts from When Life Throws You a Curve Ball, Hit It by Criswell Freeman:
“Take a moment to consider the miracle of the human brain — the most complicated creation on earth. Composed of trillions of separate yet interconnected cells, your brain allows you to live, breathe, think, hope, and dream.
“As you read these words, your heart continues to beat, your blood pressure and temperature are regulated and a multitude of internal organs sustain your bodily functions. Your eyes focus and refocus as you read down the. Page, and without thinking, you hold the book in place. In addition, you have enough spare brainpower to think about the words you are reading. Amazing, isn’t it?
“Your brain never rests. Even while you sleep, it keeps working, never stopping for a single moment. It gives most of us a lifetime of service with very few mechanical problems. Though the brain contains trillions of moving parts, it’s never closed for repairs — it just keeps doing the job, day after day.
“Over a lifetime, your mind compiles a complicated, interwoven series of beliefs, hopes, wants, and needs. The result: your unique personality, one that is different from any other living human — past or present.
“Considering it all, your brain is almost unbelievable in its miraculous powers …. You have at your disposal the most powerful thinking apparatus ever created.
“Given the brains great potential, one thing seems clear: Your mind is more powerful than your problems.”
