9 Signs You're the Distracted Dreamer of Your Friend Group


We all know that one person who can't seem to stay focused on a single task, that girl who doesn't quite seem to be there, all the time—the distracted dreamer of the group. As hard as your friends may try to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, you know firsthand that it's nearly impossible to keep your head out of the clouds. Dreamers tend to think outside of the box and are able to see far beyond what's right in front of them. However, add in that distracted element and you've got a perfectly imperfect mess of a human being.  

1. You are no stranger to the age old adage, "Her head is always up in the clouds"

If you had a dollar for every time someone said this to or about you, there's no doubt you'd be swimming in cash. 

2. You are constantly getting lost in your own mind

Sometimes people tell you to "stop being in your head so much" but you can't help it. Your friends assume you're just zoning out, but the truth is that you just have so much inner stimulation it's hard not to put at least some of your focus on the inner workings of your mind.

3. "What goes on inside of that head of yours?" is not an uncommon question 

There are so many answers to this question. But it doesn't matter what you say, if you do decide to answer. Sometimes it's fun to be mysterious and keep people guessing.   

4. Sometimes the world in your head is just as (if not more) interesting than the happenings of the real world

Um, sorry the stuff going on in my brain is so much more interesting than reality!

5. Because you're living in your mental world, you often miss obvious things right in front of you 

*Walks into a pole* Where did that thing come from? That definitely wasn't there in my head. 

6. Due to your distracted nature and constantly buzzing mind, you struggle with forgetting your "aha!" moments and good ideas

Your thoughts and ideas all lead to totally different directions. Whenever a creative idea hits you, you don't waste time in writing it down for future reference. 

7. No dream is too big in your eyes 

You don't always think up the logistics behind the idea, but you know that somehow, in some way, it can be done. 

8. You expect opposition to some of your bigger dreams, but you don't let that deter you from pursuing them

You are your biggest cheerleader after all. If you don't believe in yourself, who else will? 

9. You often work on multiple projects at a time because you lose focus so easily

The enthusiasm and passion you have for one idea gets immediately transferred to another project when another "great" idea pops into your head. This makes getting one task done a pretty slow process. If you even manage to remember to finish that project in the first place, that is. 

As a far-too-easily-distracted dreamer, you're far from perfect. But who is? At least you're never running out of ideas. Besides, every friend group needs a healthy mix of thinkers, planners, doers and, most importantly, dreamers. Without the dream, you lose the heart of the whole operation, which would be a true shame.
