I think it's normal if your mind drifts away when meditating. I happen to think about my past mistakes or contemplate what's gonna happen today or tomorrow while meditating. I believe that our effort to release these thoughts away and stick to meditating is the core discipline of meditation. This train our minds to declutter and remain calm while giving our minds the rest and peace it deserve.
