I’m a bit ADD anyway, but some days I just have the hardest time staying focused on and living in the present: this moment.
We went to the Parade of Homes tour this year. It was the first time I had ever done anything like that. It was so much fun to think about and dream about what a future house could look like, how the layout could better suit our lifestyle, and how there could actually be enough cabinets in the kitchen to store everything and space enough to work on a meal preparation side-by-side. Since then, I keep catching myself daydreaming about what a future house could look like for us.
I’m not unhappy in the present. In fact, I love our spot in the world on our little farm outside of town. I love not having neighbors right on top of me, and love the wide open spaces and never-ending views.
Dreaming is a good thing, as long as it doesn’t take over your current life, and as long as you don’t become jaded by your current reality. Dreaming can motivate you, inspire you and encourage you. But, and I caution myself, don’t get so caught up in dreaming that you miss today and the amazing beautiful things that are in your life and a part of your life in this present moment.
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” – T. E. Lawrence
