Daydreams permit us a rare view into our subconscious minds. As opposed to being suppressed as a worthless activity, they should be examined to determine what our minds are dwelling on while we aren’t listening. A day dream is opportunity knocking, if only we open the door.
Often, we don’t know what we really want, we just continue our daily lives feeling the drudgery of repetitive tasks. At times like these, we can learn to peer within to see what our inner self is all about. Understanding our desires, and fears; our worries, and expectations, that is the information that is available. How many of us take advantage of the opportunity?
Adults are nothing more than children who have learned, and aged. Unfortunately, some behavior patterns normal to a child are changed as we mature, and learn to process information differently. Children often daydream, and even create imaginary friends. Psychologists use analysis of this type of information in treating children with psychological disorders.
As adults, we still have the child within us, bound by years of learned, adult behavior. That child within can speak if we let them. In innocence, and clarity the daydream is representative of child-like behavior that we should savor. Call it what you will, listening to your heart, or having a whim doe does not minimize the value of knowing what the inner you is finding interesting to dwell upon. It could just be the key to happiness, a priceless gift from your inner-child.
