Everything you can imagine is real.
Pablo Picasso

Imagination is a wonderful thing. It can take you lovely places. It can relax you. It can take you from boredom and inertia to the desire to move and do something you enjoy. It can help you see what needs to be done and how to accomplish it. It can help you make life better not just for yourself but for others, too.

Sadly, I have known people who imagined awful things were going to happen. There are people in my life today who imagine frightening things that could happen. There was a time I was one of those people.

I am happy to say I left the ranks of the doom and gloom army years ago. Oh, there are times that my imagination goes to the ugly, but I recognize the waste of time pursuing those thoughts. Not only is it a waste of time; it is dangerous. It can make you miserable. It can cause depression and even physical ailments. It can bring harm to others.

I don’t know if I agree with Pablo. I guess, like everything in life, imagination sometimes needs to be reined in and put in perspective in order to do the ordinary things of everyday. We just need to remember it’s meant to be a healthy and happy productive time.

Thursday thoughts…

I try to maintain a healthy dose of daydreaming, to remain sane.
Florence Welch

I can’t imagine life without daydreaming. I guess there are people who think it’s just a way to waste time, but I don’t think it is time wasted. It is an important activity to keep one levelheaded and happy.

I daydream quite often. Usually a few times a day. Sometimes it leads to doing something constructive. Sometimes it solves a problem that seemed impossible to work out. Sometimes it gives me something to ponder and wonder about. Daydreaming always relieves stress and relaxes me. It never disappoints!

I don’t often give advice, but here is some…daydream today! Don’t worry, anything important on your to-do list will get done. A good daydream will make your day better then it would be without that time out to just be alone with yourself. Oh, and as far as I know there are no bad daydreams. Those would be a nightmare while you are awake (a daymare?) and I have never had one of those, and like I said I daydream quite often. So, go for it!
