Daydream Believer. Everyday #131

I like to day dream.

I don't really remember my dreams at night -- maybe it's because I'm chronically sleep deprived, who knows -- but I'm an active day dreamer. It's both relaxing and purposeful for me. I know this is going to sound crazy, but most of the amazing things that I've accomplished or have happened to me I've daydreamed about before they happened. And then they do.

I don't believe that there's some The Secret magic going on; I actually think it's quite simple. Daydreaming is like rehearsing for when the real thing happens. It's relaxing, because don't you feel better when you're prepared? Of course you do.

When I was little I was ashamed of my daydreams, but now that I'm all grown up I indulge in daydreaming as often as I can.

What about you? Are you a daydreamer?

This post was inspired by my friend Whitney Johnson who has a new book out titled Dare, Dream, Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream, I just started reading it and it's like talking to an old friend. It's available at bookstores nationwide, as we as on all major online retailers, including Amazon, B&N, Indiebound and others. Pivot Boston 2 was based on her new book. Congrats, Whitney!
