Take a moment to just daydream!

Updated on April 27, 2010

Okay---lets have a little fun. If you want to read gloom and doom just turn the news on and skip this.

Oh yes, we may not admit it but we all have those moments that we just admire or wonder what it would be like to have been there---or have done that---or have even been that person and as they say "walked in that persons shoes." Of course we only see and imagine what we like in that person and fantasize by taking that moment and secretly inserting ourselves into that life.

Maybe one might fantasize that they could have been that person in history that they had admired. (Eleanore Roosevelt)---comes to mind)

• Maybe one might fantasize that they were a movie star that they idolized for their acting skills or the role that they played. (Julia Roberts---comes to mind)

• Maybe you just won't admit it but you too are guilty of these daydreams and it is okay I won't tell.

Yes, I believe our moment of daydreaming and fantasizing can be very healthy in especially today's world of stress. Some would disagree because to them it would be very difficult to step away from that fine line that separates these moments and I understand.

• Here I will attempt to show you a couple of my daydreams because they would be impossible otherwise.

Just for a moment I can be that jazz or blues singer and Louis Armstrong will be leading the way.

Maybe I will just simply dance the night away?

Maybe now! after all of that I will sit back an do what I do best---Daydream?

      De Greek--thank you. As you can see I'm 78 years young and people like Cris & Jerilee wei with all that natural talent are there to show that it is never to late to LEARN new things.

      Remember when we stop learning we---STOP?

      Eleanor Roosevelt! Wonderful choice! You know she defended Mexican Americans during the notorious Zoot Suit Riots and she really made a spectacle of the LA Times and the LAPD for their role in the vicious and brutal discrimination against Chicanos during that time. She truly is a lady to be admired.

      I also admire Rita Hayworth not only for her acting but also for her support for the Sleepy Lagoon Defense Committee, she truly used her celebrity to shed light on some serious injustices.

      I really enjoyed this hub! Wonderful... Daydreaming is how I get my best inspirations.

      Daydreaming is a great way to pass the time while waiting, too. Of course, if I'm waiting in a line and daydreaming and not noticing I'm now at the front, I get some funny looks, so I just explain, "I was daydreaming".

      The great part of it is, when your senses get fully in tune, you'll start to even feel the daydream. It doesn't get better than that :) Great post as always :)

      Ah yes, escaping from wherever we are in our lives, dreary or otherwise, is always a welcome respite. And it's a good exercise too if you're a writer.

      By the way, cool images my friend :D

      Lovely sentiments that we'd all be wise to heed. Thanks to you, I learned that day dreams are the seeds to making your dreams come true. We were all really blessed to have a mom that wise. Love you.

      Feline, I totally agree because daydreams have picked me up and dusted me off when I needed it the most.
