Mentally Absent

To say that I drift off to my own world SOMETIMES, is an understatement. I do live in my own little world permanently, unless life gets in the way and I’m firmly requested to step down and put my feet on the ground again.

There is so much going on in my world – so many thoughts, feelings and emotions. Images, dreams and new possibilities to be considered. I’m an abstract thinker, my mind never sleeps. I can always find a way to entertain myself.

I love living in my world. Yet, there are some obvious minuses of having one’s head in the clouds. For starters, I can’t call myself a perceptive person. I’m hopeless at noticing details. If a friend changes her haircut, I’ll see it a month later when she finally asks ‘so how do you like it?’. Besides, having my mind occupied all the time, I sometimes have a problem enjoying the present moment. Being here and now. I’m trying to change that though. I’m learning and getting better. This world can be fascinating too.

Sometimes I feel as I'm a little bit autistic because I'm so consumed with my inner thought.

So you know what it feels like! Thanks for commenting :)

Yes I know it is the story of my life.Thanks for sharing :))

Don't forget to visit Poland too when you have that jet! :)

Oh my lordy. <br />

's why I shall visit her piece of the world after I have my boat. Oh damn, that won't work. Ok, after I have my jet. Hmmmm - better.<br />

<br />
SHE TALKS TO .................... F I S H !

I heard my name............?<br />
<br />
Of course she is spooky - no contest!!!!!!<br />
<br />
love you just so, big sis

Spooky, tree hugging genius. I like that :)

Haha....well, I'd like to believe that was true, but I'm sure my little brother bcj would have another opinion about it that would include the words "spooky" and "tree hugger" ;-)

'...part of my mind was not in the classroom, but I always seemed to know what the lessons were also.' - you know what they call it, don't you? The word 'genius' comes to my mind :) But that we already know about you!

Oh my!

Yes, I think I've always been super-aware of details. It just seems to be a part of my nature. I used to be overly critical and I worked to overcome that, though. <br />
And I have always been a dreamer. Teachers used to accuse me of daydreaming all the time... and part of my mind was not in the classroom, but I always seemed to know what the lessons were also.<br />
<br />
I guess I can keep both worlds running at the same time.

'And then I change the details that I don't like to something more perfect in my own little world' - I love that :) But have you always been like that? I mean, have you always been able to notice details being a dreamer, or is it a learned lesson?

It's funny....I'm in my own little world much of the time, but I always notice details in the outer world. And then I change the details that I don't like to something more perfect in my own little world......It must be my Virgo rising.....
