Lost In Thought

When we say we’re lost in thought, we mean that we started listening a little too closely to the narratives in our head. We started watching thoughts like a movie, getting invested in the plot, the characters, the fictional elements of the past and future events of our lives.

But who gets lost, exactly?

It’s not me who gets lost in thought. _Me _is still driving. _Me _is still on a conference call. Me isn’t lost in anything. Me is the one having thoughts to begin with, so _who _is getting lost exactly? This question is much more important than its answer.

When you get lost in thought, find yourself in right now.
