Daydreaming


Is it possible to make dreams come true when you aren’t even sure what they are?

I don’t know about you but one thing I find myself doing for pretty much 23 out of every 24 hours per day is daydreaming; I’ve always done this. As a child I vividly remember standing in the playground at school wondering what my life would be like if I had this or had that, did this or did that. It’s just a thing I’ve always done.

What happens when I stop daydreaming? Honestly…90% of the time I’m not daydreaming I’m miserable as sin, only occasionally am I happy to live in the here and now without part of me wishing I was living in someone else’s here and now. But why is this and is this even normal? Seriously, does everyone else feel the same or am I just some weird dreamy freak who can’t quite relax enough to enjoy reality for fear of missing something better? (Answers on a postcard please.)

Anyway, the fact that I daydream my life away isn’t really the point of this post; the real focal point here is around making those dreams come true. If I made some of my dreams come true, would I spend less time daydreaming and more time just living or would my dreams simply change? Does it even matter? If it does though, how does one make dreams come true when they have so many dreams that they aren’t sure which the real ones are. By real ones, I mean the ones that are worthwhile bringing to fruition rather than the silly ones like dreaming about having an endless supply of Kellogg’s Frosties and ice cold semi-skimmed milk on tap…though I wouldn’t complain if that one came true!

So, this is a call out to anybody and everybody who reads this; what is your take on this? How much time do you spend daydreaming? Does it help if you make dreams a reality or do the dreams just change? I’m curious and I want to know if I’m doing something wrong or if I’m just like the rest of you, only I actually put it out there for the world to see and hear. Help me out guys, my dreams don’t have an answer for this one! x

  1. I don’t day dream 90% of the day but I do quite a lot when I go to bed at night. Think about all the things that happened that say turns into, what if did xyz then turns into a whole day dream of the future! Nice house, two kids, happy family, nice schools, a trip to France, a dream job… So don’t worry. I think it’s normal. Gives us something to reach for xx

  2. I’m guilty of daydreaming, but in doing that I am kind of planning how to get to where I’m dreaming of.

    It doesn’t always help, but it can slightly clear a murky picture.

    Of course there are times when you have to stop the dreaming, and just do it!
