In the last day I've come to the conclusion that daydreams can come true. I wrote a post about daydreams one day after the hubs and I had dinner with our aunt. My daydream has been primarily focused on the lottery, then secondly going on the most epic road trip with the hubs driving clear across the country and back....straight up taking a couple of months to do said epic trip. I've included the link in here as shown as the funny looking "daydreams" above.
Did I ever imagine that the daydreams would come true? I hoped. I like to think that I am just a teeny-tiny bit psychic, but I don't know the future by any means. At least the daydreams got my mind reeling and rolling of the possibility. I think that daydreams, imagining and wishes - anything that gets your mind active and off of your current reality, even just for a bit, can do your soul wonders. It's the complacently that puts us in a rut. You're fine with your surroundings; you don't yearn for depth, then you find yourself in the blues and grays of your once colorful life. Not that blues and grays are a bad thing, but what happened to oranges, yellows and turquoise? Where'd they disappear to??
I'm in a rut...as I am sure that lots of people are.
Now, here is our daydream actually coming to life. The hub's aunt - we'll call her Auntie G - she's moving to Texas for a short bit to be near her daughter who just gave birth to Auntie G's very first grandchild. Auntie G has graciously asked the hubs and I to accompany her on this road trip and then fly our butts home. Can you guess what we said??: "Um, let's think about this (1 second passes) HELL YEAH!".
All three of us will drive to Houston, however we won't be driving straight through; we'll make pit stops along the way. We'll see the Grand Canyon (which the hubs and I have never seen. I am almost crying now just given the opportunity to view it's splendor). We will then go to Sedona, AZ (seeing the pictures online, it looks majestic - simply amazing.) We'll then run through New Mexico and possibly stop at the Carlsbad Canyons - or maybe even White Sands (both of which are equally amazing under and above ground respectively). Then we will head to our final destination: Houston, TX. Clear across Texas, damn near to Louisiana - at least it looks that way on my wall map.
We can only assume at this point that the trip to Houston will take...4 days? If we wanted to drive all the way through, from Southern CA straight to Houston, it would take approx. 22 hours. However, including beautiful parts of our Nation to our trip it tacks on quite a bit of hours and miles. Although, this could absolutely be a one-time opportunity and I am excited...I'm super stoked. I want to eat in other states, I want to drive in other states, I want to go to the bathroom in other states, I want to talk to people in other states, I want to SEE other states.
This daydream will turn into reality and I hope it will bring back yellow, orange and turquoise to our blue and gray life.
