Free Your Inner Child: Day 5


Today  you are invited to use your imagination as a child would; not for any purpose in particular, except to have fun! Take a 15 minute break and allow your imagination to take you out of the mundane, out of predictability, and most importantly, not "out of your mind"! 

When is the last time you stared up at the cloud scattered sky and let your imagination turn clouds into things? When is the last time you imagined just what is that squirrel or bird or dog saying? When is the last time you made a sandcastle, mud pie, snowman, snow fort, snow angel . . . ? You get the point! Go on an adventure today with your imagination. Allow yourself to "see" what isn't there, and believe that it is.

Here are some of my favorite quotes about imagination:

Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
Dr Seuss

I am imagination. I can see what the eyes cannot see. I can hear what the ears cannot hear. I can feel what the heart cannot feel.
Peter Nivio Zarlenga

I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see.
Duane Michals
