    See…Is it so tired???
  • 4. Our mind is always busy all the time!
    When it is tired, it runs to do, listen, think more and more. It solves the problem at the wrong place and walk to the wrong way. Today…tomorrow….day-by-day… night-by- night ….all our life….our mind is always up and down sometimes laughing, sometimes crying, sometimes happy, sometimes sad….no end.
    Without the right direction!
