As I write this at 2 AM, my mind already a buzz with my long list of things that need to be done today, I yearn for this simplicity. The dog having to go out in the middle of the night, should not set off a chain reaction in my mind of all the things that need my attention. Why can’t I go back to sleep? Too much to do and the thoughts start firing through my brain.
This wouldn’t happen in my fantasy life. There would be no pressing issues to deal with or long to do list. My most pressing problem would be what book to read next or what to make for dinner. There would actually be a dinner, freshly prepared, and not eaten out just because it was easier, quicker, and less stressful. There would no need to have the latest fashions or fancy things. No reason to keep up with the neighbors or have the most current model of anything. FOMO or fear of missing out would not occur in my fantasy.
