I've always been known as a day dreamer. When I was younger, I would always be so out of everything. Never paying attention because my mind was occupied in some fantasy world it would create. I'll create little alternate universes of where I was currently. For example, if I was in class, I would look out the window and imagine an evil person with a gun would walk into our class room and everyone would scream and hide under the desk. I would hide as well but then I'll get this courage and dramatically look at my teacher while she dramatically looked at me with fear in her eyes quietly telling me Yoali don't do anything stupid. Then I'll softly smile at her and turn away, in slow motion of course, and wait for the evil person to get distracted then hop out from under my desk and attack him from behind. While he'll be stunned, I'll kick the gun from his hand while my other classmates would jump in and help me tackle this evil person down. The threat would be stopped. I'll escape the boring lecture of my present world into this fictional world in my head with excitement and courage. Now, I've realized that I've lost this ability to daydream and be imaginative. I've realized that today we've occupied our minds so much with technology. We've killed off our mind's opportunity to just go where it wants by shoving our phone screens or laptop screens in our eyes and earphones in our ears. We've distracted all our senses that our minds needs to be creative. It's like we fear the idea of being bored and doing nothing. We try to fill in any empty space by occupying ourselves with Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and more. I was riding the train the other day and realized I left my earphones at home. And that's the worst right? But then I told myself, It's okay! Just try to daydream like you always do. I sat there and waited. But there was nothing. I sat there and tried to push my mind. I looked around to find inspiration for anything but still nothing. But then I realized it's been a while since I've given my mind the freedom to speak. So, let's all take the initiative to put everything down once in a while and just daydream. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Don't take life too seriously. ๐Ÿ“ธ: the one and only @ukwuanid

Happy Mother's Day to the woman who taught me what it means to be strong, independent, and fashionable. Love you Maman ๐Ÿ˜˜
