Sometimes in our lives we tend to escape from reality and live in a fantasy world. Sometimes it can be helpful. Other times it can keep us stuck or frustrated with life. Is there some place in your life you tend to escape or put off dealing with a situation?
Fantasies can help us use our imagination and create ideas for our lives. Often though, we keep these ideas as fantasies rather take the action to make them a reality in our lives. In coaching we talk about “someday fantasy” and “escape fantasy.”
Take notice of all that you do whether for others or yourself. Write those down. Say some gratitude prayers at the end of the day to notice all the things you do. Then give others some attention, notice them, say things about what you notice about them. Before you know, you will have those feelings you were hoping you would receive from your fantasy. Once you take the actions on your fantasies, you have now moved into the possibility of reality for your life. You will feel more satisfied and fulfilled with action than staying stuck in the fantasy world.
