What do people who don't have MD think about?

Has anyone ever wondered how people who don't have MD spend their alone time? Like what do they think about?

When not DD’ing:  planning, reflecting, considering, replaying. 

I always wanted to know about it, because i don't know what  think when i'm not md.

Well, honestly, the mind fills up with everyday things.  I plan what I am going to do, short and longer term, I reflect on events and conversations to understand more fully, I consider how I could manage things better the next time by replaying events.  My spiritual practices are more focused and I feel more in tune with the world.

I DD’d obsessively for 65 years and have managed to keep them at bay for only this past year.  Relationships are so much better, I have more self worth and hate myself less for my former constant failures.

Interesting, how did you get around to doing it? And @OP, same! I can't imagine how it must feel to lay in bed and just remain in the dark, empty moment.

“just remain in the empty, dark moment”. Really? Is that what you think happens if there is no DD?  No!  I often review my day and think ahead to the next day and anything coming up in the near future.  Goodness, ‘empty, dark moment’.  No, not like that.

Haha, fair enough!

I bet most of the things are similar....I don't DD (my daughter does and that's why I became a member) so I am familiar with the process.  I know her dreams are elaborate and consuming.  For non DD'rs..  I think we all worry, pray, go over past scenarios and if we made correct choices. I think about what I'd like to do with my time left on earth and how I can make a difference.  I get frustrated like everyone else that I have more "good intentions" than courage and that many of my thought out plans never come to fruition.  But if I stop thinking about and planning them in reality, then it is 100% sure that I will never do them, even if they aren't successful....and maybe just trying is success enough. :)
