Thoughts: Messy Thoughts on My Dull Life

It seems like I have been paying too much attention to what I will do once I get a chance to do them. I stay up at night daydreaming (or more like, nightdreaming, hahaha) about impossible adventures, explorations of Atlantis, being the first human to live enough lives to impress anyone and everyone.
It’s pretty entertaining, actually, but when daydreaming makes your current life seem so incredibly dull, that you think that if you can’t be like your perfect self, then you can’t be anyone you like, then you begin reconsidering whether excessive daydreaming is a good thing.
I could also be exploring, I could take a walk, I could go out and talk to a stranger, learn his story, but instead I decide to stay here and blog my messy thoughts.
I often complain about how quiet, dull, and boring my life is, but it’s not that bad. Once you think about it, everyone’s life is an adventure itself, we just haven’t lived other’s lives.
For example, I look outside the window, and what do I see?
I see a small park, a couple of big trees, quite some grass, and some bushes and flowers. It’s pretty, neat, and alive. What do you see?
What did you do today? How does it compare with what I did?
I woke up, I ate breakfast, I used the computer, I helped my mom clean, I ate lunch, I went to the gym, and now I’m here.
Well, this was a weird post, but maybe you get what I’m trying to say.

  1. I read a book that spoke of this daydreaming thing. We can compare ourselves to others and think our life is duller than everyone else’s- so the key is to not compare ourselves to others. Or we can compare ourselves to our own dreams/expectations of life and let them make us feel bad about our life. So we shouldn’t compare. I’ve been realizing these things in my life and it’s a continual process just trying not to compare, to find the joy in the life I live right now.

    • Yes, the key is to not compare, but at least for me, it’s so hard!
      I think I should focus on what I have now, than on what I had in the past, or dreaming about what I can have in the future, because I then am at risk of disappointment. Thanks for the tip, and may you find joy in your life!
