Episode 3 : "Springs in Mind"

Today's theme is "Springs in Mind", as I told you in the previous column.

Driving force for growth and development
Our "minds" may be expressed as something like "strings" that we see in our daily lives.
For example, we use expressions like "to tug at someone's heartstrings" or "broken heartstrings".

On the other hand, the term "springs" is used in expressions like "to use the incident as a springboard for …"

It may be interesting to imagine what the springs in your mind are like. What kind of springs do you imagine? Coil spring or board springs?The "springs in mind" appears in various forms. Sometimes they appear as "defiance" of the people, or "springboard" helping you to free yourself from the painful feelings or helping you to further grow by having an enjoyable experience.

We see catastrophic events everywhere, but many of them seem to be caused by a person who cannot control his/her mind, or the "broken strings" of his/her mind. "Springs," however, will never break.

Yes, indeed, the "springs in mind" never break and the term "springs in mind" can be used in association with personal growth and development.
Maintenance for mind spring needed

The "springs in mind" give you power for getting your energy and strength back and making a step forward even when you are bullied at school, make a mistake at work, or lose someone you love.
However, even "springs in mind" sometimes get weak or rust. What do you do in such a case?
You will be able to feel the "springs in mind" get the strength back when you do fully and freely what you like to do, such as watching a movie, reading, working up a sweat from physical exercise, or drinking alcohol with friends.
Well, I wonder what on earth happens to the "springs in mind" if we are always doing what we like to do.

"A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road."
Henry W. Beecher,
an American congregational minister of the 19th century

That's it for today.
