Mentally AbsentTo 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.
