Our fears are more numerous than our dangers,
and we suffer more in our imagination
then in reality.
Seneca

I think this is true for most people.  I know my imagination can run amok at times.  It is smart to give thought to what we are doing and where we are going but we do have to be careful not to let the negative “maybe’s” take over. I am guilty of that but I am better than I used to be in controlling those crazy maybe’s. There are a lot of scary “what if’s” and “could happen’s” in life but there are also lots of wonders and delightful surprises.

Bad things can happen but more often good things happen.

“Our fears are more numerous than our dangers,

I have a pretty active imagination and most of the time that’s a good thing. I like to daydream and let my imagination run free and those are wonderful times that make me laugh and I’m happy. But there are times when my fears get the best of me and if I am not careful I can end up with a major anxiety attack.

I don’t know why I let fear take over.  Maybe it partly comes from when I was a child and told all the bad things that could or would happen if I did or didn’t do something. My parents were the kind of people and that tended to see the dark clouds and not the sun. I guess they were trying to protect me from the bad things of life.  Of course, bad stuff happens to everyone. No one gets a free pass to the good life.

Now that I am old my fears don’t usually beat me up.  I am a survivor.  I have learned that even in bad times there is good to be found though sometimes you have to search through the muck to find it.

“Your imagination is your preview of
life’s coming attractions.”
Albert Einstein

scaredcat

I don’t know about you but I think this quote is kinda scary!   I have a vivid imagination and a very creative one.  My daydreams are of beautiful scenes and delightful happenings, silly and crazy situations, sweet and lovely stories. But I can also go to the dark side where it is frightening and ugly, sad and heartbreaking, mean and dirty.

Happily, most of my imaginings are of the daydream sort and I welcome them as coming attractions. But there are those that occasionally come from the dark side and if they are previews of the future I rather not be a part of them.

What is your imagination like?

Imagination and knowledge…

Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Albert Einstein

I certainly am not going to disagree with Albert Einstein, I am smarter than that,
but I will add my two cents.

I don’t know if one can exist without the other.
Imagination makes one wonder and that often leads to study and knowledge.
Knowledge can spark the imagination which opens the mind to new things.

There are people with lots of imagination and little knowledge
and there are people with lots of knowledge and little imagination

.How empty life would be if learned people had no flights of fantasy
and creative people never came down to earth.

Proves to me that we need each other to make life interesting,
sometimes challenging and often…a bit crazy.
