When life comes together

How does it feel when you realise you’re living your dreams.

I’d consider myself to be a bit of a dreamer.

I daydream/visualise about my future on a regular basis sometimes intentionally and sometimes on accident.

I often find that months or years later that thing I was daydreaming about is part of my reality.

And it can be something like the kind of person I want to meet or an aspect of my lifestyle.

It fascinates me that you can have days where you’re happily going through life and then you suddenly realise that last year you’d been dreaming about being where you are right now.

 

What’s the use in making plans

It always feels good to start projects and make plans (at least it does for me anyway).

But what’s the use in making plans if you don’t follow through.

That really good idea you have could actually be something in the physical reality if you’re willing to bring it to life.

To want and do nothing is of no real use.

It creates a cycle of excitement at the possibility and disappointment at the outcome of nothingness.

Everyone has plans whether its passing thoughts or things you dedicate your daydreams to but if you really want the plan to become part of your reality then you kinda have to do something about it.

Everybody’s got a thing

Everybody is going through something, you’re not alone.

It’s like that Pfunk song goes ‘I’ve got a thing, you’ve got a thing, everybody’s got a thing,

And so if each one of us has a thing that we’re dealing with alongside living our lives then we shouldn’t use that as an excuse.

It is so easy to use your life circumstances as the reasons why you can’t do the things you daydream about. You might find yourself saying or thinking:

If it wasn’t for…

I know it can get difficult (I’ve got a thing too, remember) but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t even try.

Always a dreamer

I think I’ve always been a bit of a daydreamer but also someone who can spend long amounts of time in their own thoughts and their own company.

I did that so freely as a child and it’s only really as I got older that it felt like it became an issue. I fell into trying to be someone outside of who I am and other people would comment negatively on me simply being myself.

As much as I can be so many different things, the part of me that just likes to sit and get lost in creating always remains.

The book I’m yet to write

In between listening to podcasts, laughing and reviewing information I got thinking about my book.

The book I believed I’d write when I was 9, the book I wanted to write at 15, the book I thought about starting last summer.

I really do think I could write a book even though I’m often daunted by the thought of it. It’ll be somewhere between self-help, social science and mystery.

Sometimes I think I haven’t lived enough to start writing a book but then again is there ever really a right time to start anything.

I know the answer.

The last thing I want to do is be that person wanting the same things I want now in 20 years time because I was too scared or lazy to pursue them.

I think I might start my book this summer.

 

Dream life and self-belief

If you could plan a day in your dream life what would it include and how much does it differ from how you currently live.

Use it as a journal prompt or just something to day dream about. I’ve been thinking a lot about my dream life recently and there are a few things that I plan to do over the next 6 to 9 months to really get things rolling.

One of my most limiting qualities is that I’m a creature of comfort, I’m not as much of a go-getter as I’d like to be which is why my life is much less than it could be.

But I’m also an optimist and a dreamer, I hold the belief that my dream life is possible.

Anyway enough about me, the point I wanted to make today is that the life you dream about is feasible.

Perhaps I say that because my own dream life is so simple. A few things that are part of my dream life are writing, being by the coast or countryside and making things with my hands whether that is textile art or i decide to take up carpentry I have no idea.

People often talk as though they are stuck in a miserable life and pretty much say that there’s no way to do what they really want or even just do something they like a little more. Henry ford would say they’re right and I’d agree with him.

As much as sometimes many of us would rather not admit, much of a persons ability to achieve things is a mindset thing and there are a lot of us out their who lack the Self belief to make things happen.

Daydreams and solitude

I think I’ve always been a bit of a daydreamer but also someone who can spend long amounts of time in their own thoughts and their own company.

I did that so freely as a child and it’s only really as I got older that it felt like it became an issue. I fell into trying to be someone outside of who I am because other people would comment negatively on me simply being myself.

As much as I can be so many different things the part of me that just likes to sit and get lost in creating always remains.
