    'On mind' is not idiomatic.

    You could say 'You are always on my mind'.

    'Keep that in mind (keep thinking about it).'

    Hello, Ngvivian.

    (1) Here in the United States, I think that there is a difference.

    Tom: I think that we should relax a little bit.

    Sue: What do you have in mind. = What plans do you have?

    Tom: I was thinking about our going to France for a vacation!!!

    *****

    Martha: Why have you been so quiet these last few days?

    Joe: Oh, I'm sorry, but I have a lot on my mind. = worrying about

    different things.

    Thank you
