Day Dreaming

Day Dreaming

This has been one of my hobbies since I was a kid. I had a wild imagination when I was a kid. what I used to come up with fascinating games to play. A large tree in the school play ground was a house and each one had a room\ branch, our legos were weapons and anti missiles. The list is endless of the things I used to come up with as a kid.

Growing up I kept the habit of just drifting away in day dreaming, making future plans, imagining what I would do if something might happen, this is actually recommended by many experts, they claim that if you can imagine yourself succeeding in something you will be able to achieve it. Old time psychologists warned against day dreaming, but it has been found recently that it is beneficial.

I don't really care if some expert says its good or it's bad, I enjoy it immensely and it's my way of planning my future and my actions. I hate surprises! Well not all surprises but the situations that need a reaction or a decision from me, which I did not have the time to think about and analyze. So by day dreaming I get to think of situations that may or may not happen, this way I'm not ambushed.

Lets say day dreaming, helped me plan, relax, and prepare my self for upcoming events ….it may sound silly or freakish but that's one of my little secrets.

You know, I day-dream A LOT. I've been doing it since I was a child and until now. And I don't know if I can stop. And well, I enjoy it as well. So let's keep it up.

By the way, I think the first comment is a spam!

Well yes you need a quite setting, I would not recommend it during meetings : )

There was a time in my life when I used to day dream A LOT. But sometimes when things don't turn out the way you want them to be, you tend to change many of your old behaviors.
And that was one of them. I can't remember the last time I did that.. it's been ages I guess. I live the present, the moment, and rarely think about the future.. which is weird but on the other hand makes me somehow safe from getting any reality shocks.

Day dreams help us break from our normal lives and head straight to our happy places where we think, achieve and be the heroes of our own stories

Dream on :)

I can never stop day dreaming:) even if I wanted to...It's just hard to stop once I start :p and I like it :) And what I don't like is being distracted while dreaming:p

I guess the reality check is not easy, but its not enough for me to stop : )


Well to me sometimes day dreams are the happy places and sometimes are not so happy.


Welcome to my corner : ) yes I believe that if you dream enough about something it will come true.


Well dreaming about something is not enough for you to have it. you have to work for it, but dreaming will help you enjoy it before you actually do, and in my case help you attain your dreams ...


Dream on girl ! I just love the fact that its not only me : )


Welcome to my corner : ) glad you can relate
