I have this urge to write something, but I don't know what to write about. hmmm...I have a gazillion (sp?) thoughts going on in my head that start out strong and end with a dot dot dot...dot.......dot. Maybe I can pick one thought and hope it picks up steam from there. I'm gonna pick the thought "The Danger of Daydreaming" (yes, I did just give it a title).

I am a daydreamer. Sometimes I look forward to just having some alone time to just dream. I'm embarrassed to say what some of my daydreams are because some of them are as miniscule as what I would make for dinner for my family for a week. Other times I dream bigger, like maybe my husband sells a book, he becomes famous (in my dream I don't think I would really like all the attention of being the famous one) and what I would wear if I were on the red carpet with him. Other dreams are about buying a nice starter home and being super mom.

Lately, I've been doing a lot of the latter dream. Doing that, makes me start to look at others and think, "They have that." And then Laurissa (yes, I'm briefly going into third person) thinks, "I wish I had that." And THAT makes daydreaming dangerous! (at least for me) My whole life I've wanted to jump forward to that next phase of life. Dreaming about how much happier life will be once I start high school......once I get my license (which in my case was when I was 19 years old) (I have no good explanation for that)....once I get married.....once I finish school....I think you get the point. Yes, all of those things or phases of life have made me happy, but sometimes I don't realize that until it has passed. Is it too late to make a new year's resolution? Find the positive in where you are in life and enjoy it. No matter how hard it may seem or how much better the future may appear, I think you may look back and miss some of the things from those past phases of life. I'm glad I've had this epiphany at 23 years old instead of 100 (my goal is to live to be a hundred).

That is the end of my thought.

.....I will still daydream here and there....... :)


  1. So true. You have to live in the moment and stop dreaming of the green grass on the other side of the pasture. I still do it every now and again though...

  2. Yeah, it's so easy especially when you're first starting out as a young couple and have so many dreams of the future and how it will be. It's hard not to daydream. I've given up the big daydreams though and have settled for daydreaming of the day when I can eat donuts whenever I want. haha I even dream about them....
