Imagination









~ La La La | Naughty Boy Ft Sam Smith ~


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. 
Knowledge is limited."
Albert Einstein

Thoughts are the playground of the imagination, taking us through endless possibilities, exploring the known and the unknown drawing from the heart and soul, waking up our deepest desires.

The mindset of a child is fascinated with the world around them, open to discovering and experiencing new things. As we grow older, life educates us and in turn dulls our natural curiousity and some of us forget how to dream.

Part of the beauty of life is to exercise our imagination, believe in our dreams and go through our life journey with mindset of a child with a sense of wonder.

Imagination allows us to ask the question “why not?” . . .




Ok, I'm in a psychological mood today :)  

It is that unsettled feeling, kind of an anxious restlessness.  My hard drive crashed.  This has been a month of computer problems and related expenses that were not expected.  It totally weirds me out and puts me in a funky state of mind.  I'm lost without all my settings and everything where it should be.  Poor Captain, he gave up his computer for me . . . he's awesome.

In the midst of all things unsettled, I'm feeling grateful for many things.  I have a computer to use and since my external drive crashed a few weeks ago, I have a new one that was backed up.  Only a few files lost . . . although they were important . . . with a little time I can recreate them.

Imagination is a wonderful thing . . . it can take you to a place away from everything that is wrong . . . where life is wonderful if you look at it in the right frame of mind.  

I'm grateful to my sweetie who makes me realize this and is teaching me not to freak out over insignificant events of life.  They are minor irritations that make us grateful for the time when everything is as it should be.

It was not my imagination . . . an unidentified plant put out the most beautiful cluster of yellow flowers I've ever seen today.  Spring has arrived and that makes me so happy.  I'll be posting photos at my gardening blog.

Happy Wednesday!  
I am happy no matter what irritation has found me.
