Another day, another daydream!


When you have nothing to do what do you prefer doing? Well, in my case I either watch a movie or read blogs & articles on my phone. However, there’s this special thing I love doing even when I’m doing something. No surprise here, the title’s been already read. Yes, I love daydreaming

I find myself daydreaming several times a day- when I am walking, watching something, during lectures, while working and talking with my friends.

My capacity to talk is way less than my capacity to daydream in the middle of, well, doing nothing. You obviously don't plan on dreaming, like sitting on a chair and training your mind- Go, dream now, cook up a story. It just happens; beautiful dreams clouding my mind and in that moment I cannot explain how calm I feel.


I find myself daydreaming several times a day- when I am walking, watching something, during lectures, while working and talking with my friends. Here, I’m trying to focus and listen but there goes my head, “Hey, let’s think about something else”. It’s not like I don’t enjoy listening, I love it when people confide in me but just can’t help my mind from wandering off.


This one day my friend was telling me a story. Now don’t ask what, I can’t recall because my non-compliant mind went for a walk midway. The good thing is people who know me are very well aware of this habit so to bring me back to my senses they ask me if I’m still there or to repeat what they just said. It’s funny when they ask me to repeat it, it’s like they have caught me doing something that I shouldn’t. But I can just say, it’s an old habit, going on since I was a kid.


I came across many articles which stated daydreaming regularly is not a very healthy habit as it forces us away from our present life. Well, it might be true but I believe there's no harm in doing it like a little, you know like a tiny bit if it gives you a hope of a better future. It’s also because I feel the safest in my thoughts, not worry about anything or in my case anyone. A shelter place, giving me a sense of solace and relief from my anxieties.


In my daydreams, I'm happy and content with my life. I know people say don't dwell on your future, live in your present. But sometimes when living in the present becomes tough, I feel there's no wrong in being a little selfish and running away to your future version. Just to assure yourself that you'll be fine then so suck up whatever is happening, bothering you in the present, and don't let that ruin your beautiful future.


So, that's how I continue to daydream, assuring myself the world that you see sister is nothing but just a present version. There's hope it gets better so for that hope, live right now with all the kindness, generosity you have and also continue to dream.


“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”

Oscar Wilde


So be that daydreamer and continue to weave beautiful fantasies.
