It’s time for another list!
You have seen this inspirational quote floating around the internet, right? Or maybe you’ve seen it elsewhere. I saw it on Pinterest about a year ago and…well…it inspired me:
I’m a daydreamer – big time. I often have to snap my mind back on track as it has a tendency to wander to some far off places. If I were to take the above quote literally, I would have a bit of a conundrum for it seems my heart is everywhere.
When I saw a writing prompt on the Daily Post blogroll about compiling a list, any list, I knew this would be a great way to itemize the destinations my mind travels to. Since I like to keep lists to the tidy number of 10, this proved to be a bit of a challenge….so I had to add the “+1”.
When I’m bored, disengaged, tired, or find myself with a few minutes to spare, my thoughts turn in unexpected directions. These directions usually have very little to do with what is going on around me. If there is a window near by, you will most likely find me staring out of it. If I have a lost look about me, I’m actually not lost at all. Though present in body, my spirit is far, far away. I mean no disrespect to whatever, or whoever, no longer has my attention. I have a busy, imaginative brain with a wish list longer than my arm.
In random order, here are the 10 (+1) “Things I’d Rather Be Doing”:
1) Riding a horse.
2) Swimming in a cool, cool lake on a hot, hot day.
3) Eating candy floss.
4) Watching the sun set.
5) Walking through the woods with my camera and my dog.
7) Standing in the most prefect Tree Pose I have ever done during the most amazing yoga class ever.
8) Running through a meadow of tall grass and wild flowers.
9) Driving a sports car really fast.
10) Shoe shopping.
Actually, I’d always rather be writing!
