Today my fiance and I went on a bike ride, and afterward I was super hot. Despite the cold in the rest of the country, it's actually pretty decent here in Florida. I noticed a fan sitting on the shelf next to me, so of course I started using it.
As soon as I started fanning myself, I closed my eyes and enjoyed the cool breeze. Almost immediately, I was transported elsewhere. It was unexpected, but I ended up feeling like a rich lady sitting by the pool, surrounded by luxuries, including my fan providing the freshest breeze.
I felt like I was in California, sitting beside an infinity pool, surrounded by hibiscus and other tropical delights. Of course I had a fruity rum drink in my hand in this little fantasy.
It was short lived, but it was a nice little daydream that interrupted my ordinary day. It's nice to allow yourself to have these simple escapes. Sometimes it's one of the only things that can keep us going.
Always allow yourself to dream!
