Day 223 - Day Dream.
Hey Dreamer. Remember when we use to dream? Who out there still has time to dream? Is it just me or has dreaming become a way of the past? Maybe it's since the introduction of the smart phone, but I feel like daydreaming is dead. Before smart phones, when I had a few minutes, I use to stare off into the distance and let my mind wander. I use to look up at the clouds and imagine shapes. I use to watch people and try to figure out their lives. Now when I have a few moments, I click on my little hand held computer and browse through social media. By not pausing to dream, I think we can safely say it's destroying any chance of understanding the real world. We are not allowing ourselves time to sift, sort or think.
Today, create day dreams. When you are tempted to pick up the smartphone, don't. Instead, stare off, look at the sky or simple sit. Sift through what is going through you. Pause to take in world around you. It is interesting how day dreaming and pausing can help us set priorities and see solutions.
Well, I'm going to stare at clouds and put away my smart phone. Until tomorrow dreamers!
