Daydreaming…it’s the one guilty pleasure that I am not ashamed of. One minute I’m getting on the train and the next I’m on an exotic island stranded with a gorgeous man or walking down the red carpet cameras flashing. Daydreaming is the only time where my mind is allowed to go anywhere it pleases and do the same. But lately I’ve noticed a flaw in my daydreaming festivities. There is currently someone that I have a little crush on. Unfortunately due to shyness, it took a while for me to talk to him. But during this admiring time before we ever spoke I would have multiple daydreams. Those dreams would range from what would happen during our first conversation to what I would say if I met his mother to what song I would walk to at our wedding(yeah I know lol). Now that we have had a few conversations I have discovered that daydreams are just that. Dreams, fantasy, non-realistic.
At first, I was upset that my crush did not equal up to this wonderful man that I created in my dreams. But I created this fictional character so I had no one to be mad at but myself. I believe that most people are stuck in the daydream phase of their relationship. Instead of opening their eyes to see what is really going on they only see the daydream. The possibility that probably will never become true. I’m not turning my back on daydreaming because as a single mother daydreaming gives me my sanity. I will say I have cut back on it a lot or at least the daydreaming of Mr. Wonderful (not). I still daydream of being a size 8 or being a guest on The View or meeting Will Smith. Dreaming gives you the fuel to go on and accomplish your goals. So with that, daydream with caution because some things aren’t the same as in your dreams. Some times you have to just live in the moment and accept that reality. Life is not a dream.
