The Mind Wanderer

I found myself daydreaming today about all the places I want to see and go...
It started with the Panama Canal because the discussion I was SUPPOSED to be involved in was about Panama Canal Treaties, but then my thoughts went on to how I want to see Pearl Harbor, the Great Wall of China, Palace Square in Russia and so many other places. THEN, my mind wandered on to how I want to paint a giant picture of all these places.

(elephants are like big dogs, I want one)
It turns out this daydream was a mini-victory for me. Why? Well, have you ever noticed that when you need to get over someone or something but you can't, your mind always seems to wander back to them? Well, I caught my mind wandering about something completely my own instead of it being about some dude. It was a conquest, a defeat. For that moment, I had the advantage.
This daydreaming thing, the idea of changing of my thoughts and redirecting my emotions toward something else is something I'm working on, and I did it. Instead of feeling guilty, sad, and angry I decided that I have the right to be happy. I can change, and that's what I'll work on, but in the meantime I can move on and enjoy life. I don't have to dwell on him, that, them, or this. I can daydream about life, my future, joy, exploration, and ambition.
So here's to us Rules Girls. For our mini-victory's. Cheers! To changing our minds, shifting our emotions, and having that moment of success that keeps us going, knowing we're headed the right way... and most importantly knowing it won't be like this forever.

So true...I think that I am constantly daydreaming about a way to become better. I should probably work on making them a reality! You are so inspiring!!
