The thought for this week is imagination.
“Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.”—Walt Disney
When I was younger, I lived in an imaginary world. An only child, I made up friends, characters, places, dressed up and let myself dream. As I’ve got older, I’ve tried not to let go of imagination. As a writer, you need to be able to let your mind take you to new places, to dream up people – what they look like, what they wear, how they speak, and of course, dream up that elusive orignal plot that will allow you to make your dreams of getting published come true. Writers need imagination to be writers – we need to live and breathe that fantasy world. It will one day be our bread and butter after all.
But imagination isn’t the sole domain of writers. I think life is all about imagination. reaching for goals, dreaming of your future, falling in love – it all takes some aspect of imagination because life is not always logical, there isn’t an equation you can follow, life is crazy and unexpected. Life is imagination.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere – Albert Einstein
How do you use imagination in your life?
