I’ve always considered daydreaming
as a springboard for creativity,
however, this morning I read
that daydreams actually remove us
from the present moment.
I can see this truth.
As the coffee maker sputters
I wait by the window a while,
lapse into a silent conversation
inside my head, then wonder if
these internal dialogs
are somewhat like a daydream.
Should I end such talks?
No, I can notice, yet not eliminate
these inner commentaries;
often, they’re my counseling sessions
where I act as my own therapist;
plus it’s a whole lot cheaper that way!
Note: Professional help from a life coach, therapist or psychologist can be a beneficial support to people facing life challenges. This poem in no way discourages readers who are currently in therapy, or who are considering therapy. Personally, I have found therapy to be very helpful for me during challenging times in my life.
