Each and every one of us has fantasies about a different life, where we say things that perhaps we are not brave enough to say in real life, or we do things that we are fearful of doing in reality…perhaps we skydive, bungee jump or wrestle bears. Perhaps we have the job we really want in our heads but don’t know how to get to it in our actual life.
An imagination and daydreaming are essential for creativity and sadly in our current world, there is little time for fantasising, daydreaming and imagining a different life.
If we do not act upon these thoughts, however, then there is eventually a danger that we live one life in our heads and a quite different one in reality which only leads to an internal frustration and eventually a regret.
We could become Walter Mitty.
