How Well do You Use Your Imagination?

Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said, “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Lewis Carroll, “Through the Looking Glass.”

Imagination doesn’t get much respect anymore… so many things are impossible and too much is unbelievable “it’s just your imagination…” or just “wishful thinking.”

I would gladly trade 30 minutes of self judgment for 30 minutes of imagination… or 30 minutes of wishful thinking, instead of reminding myself of my dumb-and-dumber-moments. Wouldn’t you?

An imagination is a gift that you can give to yourself and your well being. I invite you to imagine 6 impossible things today… or even just one. Imagine your house flying in the clouds, driving a car on the ocean, being a superhero, dancing on a cloud, eating an entire cheesecake…

An imagination is a terrible thing to waste being too serious about things, or too hard on ourselves. Take a moment and just imagine…

Keep it Real
