One morning, I was staring out the window while eating my breakfast and I let my mind completely run free. Instead of thinking about all the things I had to get done that day, I just let myself daydream, I allowed the “what ifs” that I normally shut up, I welcomed wonder, I bounced from thought to thought and I did it all while watching clouds drift by.
Do you want to know what I thought about? I thought about…
How much I wish our society wasn’t based around working and paying bills.
Moving to Europe to learn how to make cheese, or excel at pottery, or own a flower shop.
My upcoming road trip across America and all the gas station pit-stops, Americana roadside attractions, and new freckles I’ll get.
My future Dalmatian puppy sitting in the front seat of my future Subaru or Volvo station wagon.
The possibility that all of this is just a huge simulation, or that there are “lizard people” running rampant (I’m on a documentary kick right now, okay don’t judge me).
How obsessed I was with dinosaurs when I was younger, and how I would crawl around on my hands and knees and collect egg-shaped rocks (aka dinosaur eggs) and name them all Courtney.
Becoming a mother, it’s all I want! I can’t wait to raise a family, and make them cute lunches for school, and clean up their messes, and teach them to be kind and open-minded above all else.
Sailing the seas and getting caught in a storm. I’m not quite sure why, but I think about this often.
What about you? What do you daydream about? 😊
