TA-DAH! Week 6
#6 - Turn on Your Imagination
Children have no problem using their imaginations. During their growing up years my three boys were at various times Superman, the Hulk, Star Wars characters, "workermen", spies, race car drivers, pilots, and a host of other characters. They used their imagination to create little worlds of their own to act out their new identities. For me, it was playing Mom to all my dolls or I'd imagine being on the Mickey Mouse Club and singing along with the Mouseketeers.
Loretta writes, "Our subconscious minds can't discern what's real and what isn't, so your imagination can help you fake it till you make it. Close your eyes and picture yourself jumping for joy, smiling, whole and content." She also says, "Worrying is like viewing a bad movie over and over."
She lists several suggestions of what we can do to turn on our imaginations. One is to ask yourself where in the world you'd go if you could? What would you do once you got there? Because I journal the one that intrigued me most was "Keep a journal and write only fiction in it." If you decide to do this I suggest you preface it as such in case someone finds it after you're gone! Let me know how you used your imagination this week.
