Who knows what lies deep within my heart –
the stories that unfold before my mind’s eye, in the deepest recesses of my mind?
These secrets are mine, I hold them dear to me and I am unwilling to share.
My secret light shines brightest when I am alone.
Those who prefer their own company to the company of others are often seen as rude, snobbish, standoffish. At the very least, they are seen as shy. Why do we view the quiet as negative?
I was something of a dreamer as a young child. I suppose I still am. In my Twitter profile, I’ve labeled myself a day dreamer. I wear that badge with pride! After 32 years, I still have an imagination. Through the angst-ridden teen years, through having a child out of wedlock, missing out on the college experience, working in one dead-end, thankless job after another, through 9 years of marriage with all of its ups and downs – I am still a dreamer. I can still get lost in thought.
Its a nice place to be.
