During my life there have been extended periods of time I’ve lived completely inside of my head. Spending entire years daydreaming about a perfect life and just letting whatever happens in my real life play out of its own accord, with little to no direct input from me. This was especially true as a child and teenager, but even when I was married I practiced a lot of escapism. I would watch “Say Yes to the Dress” and imagine having that much enthusiasm getting married again and just caring so much.
When you’re in a relationship the chances of it changing drastically in a positive direction are pretty small, much, much smaller than the opposite happening. So dreaming about that, while maybe a nice thought is not very realistic.
But when your single you can envision anything you want. Scene upon scene of a momentary encounter rocking your world into a new and beautiful experience, a new forged path. You don’t have to fixate on any problems because they don’t exist yet. It can be all good, all wonderful, all coasting into bliss. And without any of the guilt of betraying someone you are supposed to love with dreams of someone new.
This song put me in a dreamy kind of mood this morning…. and everything is ok. It’s a lovely day….. in my head at least. Lol
