Foolish Daydreams

“You want to be what when you grow up?”
“Only men can do that!”
“Get your head out of the clouds.”
“You have an overactive imagination.”
“Foolish daydreams! Get real, kid.”
She smiled to herself as she heard those voices coming back to her from the past.
She buttoned up her jacket, picked up her bag and walked…….
A little while later she took her seat and started her preparations…
Still later, she adjusted the microphone and said,
“Ladies and gentlemen, this is your Captain….”
Her head would always stay in the clouds,
for foolish daydreams do come true sometimes!

Do you daydream? Do you believe that dreams come true?


I’m undertaking  the Blogging from A-Z April Challenge on From 7Eight, the blog that I share with my husband and dog! So there was no 100 Words on Saturday post yesterday. However, I think I’m addicted to the 100 word format and couldn’t resist writing this for The Writer’s Post Thursday Blog Hop hosted by Talya Tate Boerner of Grace Grits and Gardening who gave us the prompt ‘Daydream’.

    Hi Corrine,

    I love to daydream. To me, it is the beginning of an idea. That idea becomes my visualization. The more I visualize it, the more specific I get with it, the better it can come true. I do believe in the Mind over Matter approach. What we think has so much power when we focus on it. I may sound a little quirky, but I do practice this often. Call it daydreaming, visualizations, law of attraction, whatever….when we daydream, and apply it to our lives we can do ANYTHING!

    Hi Corinne,

    I just loved this piece about foolish daydreams. It sent a tingle down my spine when I read it.

    It’s very inspirational and I believe every word of it! Thank you.

    I do day dream a lot. How could I then drive away the monotony of life.

    Daydreams are the stuff of inspiration. If we started censoring our daydreams to fit into the boundaries of perceived reality nothing much would ever have been achieved in the world.

    Now that I’m adult, I could easily identify with my parents when I now hear what my little nieces would like to be when they grow up. It could really be funny at times esp. when I remember how I was years ago.

    God did see me through all my dreams… nothing is foolish nor impossible for the person who dreams πŸ˜‰ ~ dreams big, that is.

    powerful piece Corinne. Like many others had mentioned, this is one limiting belief instilled in us by elders. they should have told us to daydream more because your dreams become your reality! the dreams should have been more colorful, more vibrant, more powerful and glorious. daydream a lot – keep on dreaming til your life becomes that dream should have been the advice we could have received:) But one we can definitely pass on to others.

    Daydreams rock! πŸ™‚
    Loved the way you carved that thought via her daydreams.

  9. Varsh Varsh April 9, 2013

    All of us daydream na? I’ve probably spent a long time doing that…in lectures….during movies…when I was pregnant…doing stuff that was virtually impossible at that point of time….
    Some of them come true and some don’t, but dreaming is the first step towards getting what you want right? πŸ™‚

    Foolish daydreams are so my thing. And they come true. People don’t laugh then… oh no they don’t!

    You have this amazing ability to express the most profound thought in few words. And this is what pulls me to your blog here.

    Sometimes, I enjoy day dreaming! It passes time, keeps my brain occupied and improves my imagination!! πŸ˜‰
    My fave day dream is that I’ve won the lottery and have started collecting 1st editions of my fave books! πŸ˜€
    I have a huge library, with step ladders and all!
    My fave place is next to a huge window, a couch with an attached side table to keep the books and a cup holder for my coffee!! πŸ™‚
    Sigh!! Lovely na?! πŸ˜‰

    The only day dream that did come true was the one I saw as a little girl – I was independent and happy! (touchwood! – I am independent and happy!)

    Sometimes I daydream, but I have to say that I do it a lot less now than I used to. When it comes to dreams, I think they are good to have, essential really because they are usually the driving force behind our passions. When it comes to them coming true, I think they can, but they have more of a chance of coming true through hard work and being actively pursued, not wished for.

    Yes, I daydream though sometimes I think it’ a waste of time. Only if I act on those dreams do I think they were worth my time after all. But it does help the imagination… πŸ™‚

    This was especially poignant for me. My dad was an airline pilot and I wanted to be one, too. But I was told that girls could only be stewardesses.

    Yes, dreams can seem outrageous to all except the dreamer. Sometimes, we stifle our creativity and that of our dear ones and don’t even realize that. BTW, these days, it is such a common sight to see lady Captains and does fill me with pride each time :).

    Unless you dream you cannot achieve anything:)

    Oh, if I had a dollar for every time I heard a word of discouragement during childhood . . . When we dare to dream and hold onto them, miracles can and will happen!
    Adored this post, Corinne – just beautiful!
    Blessings, dear friend!

    Corinne…this is brilliant! And, how can I resist a post?

  23. umashankar umashankar April 7, 2013

    Corinne, somehow daydreams have always been foolish. Unlike the protagonist of your post, I am still to touch the skies of my dreams but come hell or high water, here I come…! Thanks for the inspirational bead in your challenge. Incidentally, where will it lead you to?
