As children, we're encouraged to use our imaginations. It comes naturally. As adults we don't use our imaginations nearly as well. We're too busy just trying to manage our real lives, I guess. But when we do put our imaginations to use, often it's in a negative way, imagining what would happen in different situations, otherwise known as worrying. Let's make a deal today. Let's use our imaginations the way they were intended--to have fun. Imagine yourself in positive situations, or handling yourself in the best way possible in a negative situation. Or imagine yourself in a perfect setting, relaxing, stress-free. Imagine yourself as you wish to be, a better parent, a successful employee, a caring friend. Imagine what could happen if we used our imaginations for good instead of worry. Happy Thoughtful Thursday.
