I’m in the cafe downstairs, working down here today. The joint is full of lively children and adults. The thought entered my mind ….. what happens to us in the transition between childhood and grown up – hood 🙂
Take ‘daydreaming’ for example.
Kids have so many daydreams that they don’t really know fantasy from reality.
They take on all sorts of personas without a second thought … and then life somehow beats them into submission.
Their thoughts of being superman, batman, a policeman, a fireman, a ballerina, sports champion, brain surgeon gradually wither and die with childhood. Mostly. Messages like ‘be realistic’ float around the cosmos, and I wonder sometimes if that is a good thing,
Daydreaming should be mandatory! Bring it back! Not just for the kids, for the big kids. Kids like us.
The practice of daydreaming about your life and how you would like it to be is an incredibly effective way to move closer to that dream. Mostly we daydream and catastrophise about all of the things we don’t want. And you know where that gets you.
This week I thought I’d put out a challenge to you my friend!
Daydream big and bold dreams for 21 days and see what happens … let that wonderful imagination, that wonderful part of you that has been battered and bruised and beaten into submission, rise out of the mud and blossom forth!
Come on! It’ll be fun.
Think about it. When was the last time you allowed yourself to daydream like a kid, with faith, hope, and a sense of adventure?
Up for the challenge? Let me know how you go, I always enjoy your feedback,
