    Re: What´s on your mind/going through your mind?

    go/run/flash etc through somebody's mind
    if something goes through your mind, you have a thought, especially for a short time:
    She knew what was going through his mind.
    All kinds of questions ran through my mind.
    After the accident, one of the things that went through my mind was whether I would be able to drive again.

    on your/somebody's mind
    a) if something is on your mind, you keep thinking or worrying about it:
    He looked as though he had something on his mind.
    Sorry I forgot. I've got a lot on my mind (=a lot of problems to worry about) at the moment.
    b) if something is on your mind, that is what you are thinking about:
    She's the type of person who just says what's on her mind.
