"When I was a young boy, I was often chastised for daydreaming," says Carers NZ life coach Richard Blakeborough.
"Get your head out of cloud cuckoo land. Stop daydreaming. Grow up."
The thing was, I enjoyed daydreaming.
It was fun to imagine how things could be, who I could become, what I could do.
It was interesting to see where these daydreams would ‘take me’.
I was still daydreaming when I went to university.
One day, at a psychology lecture, I was staring out of the window.
“What on earth are you doing?” asked the lecturer.
