Lost in my Own World

Throughout my life, I have heard “J, you are in your own little world” more times than I can count. At first, I took offense to this, because it doesn’t seem like a kind remark and it most likely isn’t, but I have come to realize that I am lost in my own world!

I have a little world inside of my head that I go to when I am wanting to escape reality or when I want to daydream. I have created a little space inside of my head where there is happiness, positivity, and safety. Life is full of ups and downs; it is challenging and as humans, we are constantly striving for balance and peace. We will do anything to be happy and to feel comfortable.

Miles in My Mind

My mind takes me to many places. I can daydream of being on the beach or on a tropical island. I can imagine myself surrounded by loved ones as I reminisce about old family traditions and memories. I can escape reality by creating a scenario in my head about something more pleasant than what I am experiencing.

I am a dreamer. I love to daydream. I often see people in a crowd or at the store and wonder what their daily lives are like. I wonder what they enjoy and what experiences that they have had. I wonder what their personality is like, and what their goals are in life. It’s amazing to me that we see so many people in passing, and we don’t have any idea about what their lives are like. It’s fascinating to me that we have so much going on in our lives, but most people will only see us on the surface. My mind wanders.


I am the kind of person that never gets bored. I can always find something to do and when I can’t, my mind is the most entertaining thing there is! I seem to be able to think up whole situations and scenarios. I have always had quite an imagination. I like to get lost thinking about the past and how I could have done things differently.

Sometimes I pretend that I am given another chance and I relive it in my head the way that I wish I could have before. I find myself daydreaming about my future. Where will I live? Will I find true love? I wonder what my kids will do in life, and where life will take us all in general. Part of the fun is not knowing.

I always have many thoughts. My mind is like a hamster wheel, it keeps spinning. I hop from one thought to another. It is absolutely exhausting, but I cannot seem to stop. I am typically deep in thought much of the time. I think about life and current situations on a very deep level. I think about those in my life very often.

I like to take myself to a place that is magical and happy, there is enough negativity and sadness in this world.

You Can Say It

It doesn’t bother me anymore when I hear this comment. Sometimes the world in my head is so much better than reality!
