Today's word: Imagine
Imagine... imagine.... imagine...
It is due to the capacity of the human imagination that has gotten us where we are. Some good, some bad, some we have to use our imagination, even more to make sure it doesn't go bad. I like technology, who would have imagined 100 years ago that someone could look into a black screen press a few buttons and be speaking face to face with someone across the country or the world? Somebody did, and in the beginning they wrote stories about this crazy stuff, then made it happen.
Imagination takes time, effort and cultivation. Just like anything else worth keeping. Keeping- because we are all born with it. Children have an incredible imagination. This is how I can write a lame story for my littles, take a few pictures from ground level and they will talk about it for a long time, debating back and fourth if momma really shrunk on her walk or not.
As we get older we learn more of how the world really works, and most of us loose some of our imagination in the process. But if we work to keep it our imagination leads to creativity and gives us a lot of opportunity to relieve the stress of "everyday" life.
5 min. Stop!
No go forth and cultivate some imagination, and see what grows from it.
