Dare To Dream A Different Life~Repost

As people say we are in for a difficult time, and we are, I want to say…Dare To Dream it can be Different. Now, more than ever, we need to hold those dreams high, and loud, and proud and have the courage to say… this is not how we want things to go. Out of Dreams come Miracles, Inventions, and Unexpected Blessings. Let us bring that to the forefront of our thoughts rather than the confusion and fear they expect from us. Dare to think Otherwise. And Dare to make it happen! Blessings!

Dare To Dream of a Different Life…

The greatest changes, accomplishments, and successes in our lives all begin with our dreams and desires that our life can be different. And that comes from daring to look outside the perimeter of our current existence and believing that there is something more, that our lives can be richer, fuller, and we can live more in tune to our true self, our true purpose.

We can get stuck on the hamster wheel of life, scurrying every day to get through. And, with the world events and concerns we are now faced with, it may be difficult to look “out there” and see that the positive and possibilities are still available. And there is some fear too, about how things may turn out.

This is why it is so important now, to…

Dare To Dream of a Different Life…

Dare to imagine that our life and the life of this planet…can be different than where it looks like it is going.

Great change will grow from those dreams…and those who Dare to Imagine the world a different, better place. We must not get mired in the negative energy and forget to DayDream…to keep our Imaginations full of the ideas, dreams, notions, and concepts that make our own individual worlds, and the greater world, a better place. From our Imaginations and Dreams are born the ways and means to make them happen.

And the more we exercise our Imaginations, the greater the potential for amazing ideas to grow and manifest. And every thought and action that flows from that creates a stream of energy that pushes back the negative forces. It makes a difference. Believe that.

Let us fill our worlds, and the greater world, with the amazing, technicolor, spectacular, magical burst of our Imaginations to…

Dare To Dream of a Different Life

Yesterday’s blog post was about New Beginnings and clearing out the old to pave the way for a new path so that new experiences and manifestations have room to come through. So too, if we want to change our lives, and the world, we must first…

Great change will grow from those dreams…and those who Dare to Imagine the world a different, kinder, gentler place. We must not get mired in the negative energy and forget to DayDream…to keep our Imaginations full of the ideas, dreams, notions, and concepts that make our own individual worlds, and the greater world, a better place.

Weekend Inspiration ~ Flit of Fantasy

 

F 20

As children, we live in fantastic worlds of our imagination. Everything real has a film of fantasy and wonder laid over it, so that everything we experience is new, fresh, and magical. As we grow up, we are told and taught not to live in those fantasy worlds and to adapt to the reality of life, and the harshness of it. As adults, we forget to play in our imaginations and to take a break from that harsh real world. But…we should not forget that there are other worlds, other places to visit, other “realities” to enjoy. And…it is by way of these imaginations that great and healing things come to manifest in this real world.

So, do not forget to carve out a time for Fantasy…to daydream…to inhabit those peripheral worlds that are full of Magic and Wonder…to create fantastic dreams and make believe. For, it is in those places that we find the strength to carry on, rejuvenate, and where our tortured souls break free. And, it is also in those places…if we bring that energy back to the real world…will nurture and heal us and this damaged place we live.

Today…let it be ok to spend it in your Fantasy world. Spend it in the joy of creating and imagining…and give yourself that time to wander down the pathways of another land. Be refreshed…and giggle! Blessings!

Weekend Inspiration ~ Imagination

 

I 3

When I wrote the previous post about Imagination…I realized I have written very little about it on this blog, and as I pondered on the subject, I realized just how important and necessary our Imaginations are…and how the current state of the world conditions us to forget about our Imagination and to be steeped in the harshness of reality. It occurred to me that reality becomes harsh…because we forget to use our Imagination to create that reality.

When we are children, we have no filter on our Imagination, and we see the world through that magical lens. As we grow up and face “life”, that lens gets mucked up with grime and we lose that spontaneity that keeps the Imagination alive. Or, we are told to be “realistic” about our lives and future and focus on accomplishments, money, success, and clamoring up “the ladder”. And we forget that it is within the Imagination that all of those things are born. We are taught that it is childish or unproductive to spend time in the Imagination, or daydreaming, but this is where we find our True Self…and conjure the ideas that become those successes. The Imagination sprinkles our minds with fantastic new thoughts, ideas, and positive energy and inspiration. It is where great deeds and inventions are born. And…it is where we can dream up the ideas that will help change the state our world is in right now.

So, I encourage everyone to use their Imagination. Today…in everything you do…use your Imagination. Think up great adventures while washing the dishes, ponder that next great invention, let your Imagination wander and wind through travels to places yet untouched…and let it change your life…and the world. Here are some quotes to get you started! Blessings!

Thoughts For The Day

 

“Live out of your imagination, not your history.” ~ Stephen Covey

“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.” ~ Albert Einstein

Imagination 2

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

Always when looking for quotes for these Thoughts For The Day posts, certain ones stand out to me, and I feel compelled to write about them. As I was searching for today’s quotes, I kept running across ones about Imagination. So…I got the message to make this post all about…Imagination.

????????

The formal definition of Imagination is:

– the ability to imagine things that are not real : the ability to form a picture in your mind of something that you have  not seen or experienced
– the ability to think of new things
– the act or power of forming a mental image of something not present to the senses or never before wholly perceived in reality

Imagination 1

This is the stuff of where dreams manifested comes from. As the quote by Einstein says…logic will get us from one point to another…but it is the Imagination that creates the points to begin with. It is what makes real that which is not a reality yet.

Imagination 4

Every idea, every success, every manifestation…begins with a thought…a thought that is born of the Imagination. Someone, somewhere…had to think it up before it could be done.

Today…let your Imagination free…and see what you can dream up! Walk through that door…

Imagination 5

Blessings!

Thoughts For The Day

Imagination 1

“First comes thought; then organization of that thought into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.”  ~ Napoleon Hill

MarDrag’s Thoughts:  All the thoughts, actions, efforts and hard work we put into our desires and dreams would cease to exist as we know them…if not for the Imagination we have that started the process, that gave spark to the idea, in the first place. DARE TO IMAGINE!

See 1

“Change the way you look at things, and the thing you look at changes.”  ~ Author Unknown

MarDrag’s Thoughts: I have said this so many times that I could be that “Author Unknown”! This lesson was a difficult one for me to learn, but when I did, it changed everything. There is another quote too, by H.M. Tomlinson that says, “We see things not as they are, but as we are.” So, we see things through the eyes and souls of our personal experiences. But, if we strive to “see” without preconceived notion, judgment or particular perception…then we see the real clarity…the honest truth of the thing…and it can change what we see…and therefore, our decisions and choices. When we look from within…or work on the parts of ourselves that require healing…it truly does change the way we “see”…and then, what we are looking at, changes too.

Appreciation 2

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather, recognizing and appreciating what we do have.”  ~ Frederick Keonig

MarDrag’s Thoughts: Gratitude is such an important thing to make part of our daily lives. In the midst of chaos or difficulty, we focus on the cause of that strife…and we often forget that it is not the totality of our life. It is one puzzle piece in the greater puzzle that makes up our lives. And it is important that we remember to offer up Gratitude for all those other puzzle pieces that are in place and helping to make our lives work. If you are having trouble finding something to be Grateful for…start with the fact that you woke up this morning and are able to read this post! Appreciation for what we have creates a flow that will bring us more of what we Appreciate.

Smiles 1

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure, but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.”  ~ Joseph Addison

MarDrag’s Thoughts: It is sad to me that…when walking around out in the world these days…I see so many downcast faces, averted eyes, and frowns. Few people smile anymore…or say good morning…or offer a pleasantry.  My heart goes out to them. So…I try to smile a lot…and I find people respond to those smiles. I understand people are no longer accustomed to kindnesses. But, with just a Brilliant Smile, we can win them over! We all need them…and do not get enough of them. So give it a try. Put a Smile on today…and perhaps change someone’s day completely…even your own!

Now…let me take a moment to say how Grateful I am for all of you that come to read here and Appreciate my work with “likes” and comments. I am Grateful for your blogs too…that give me joy and teach me. May your day be Full of Blessings and Smiles! And let me leave you with one of mine to start your day!

Blessings!

Inspiration By The Sea

 

I woke missing the water this morning…missing being at the sea. And since I cannot get there in real life today, I went looking for it in my imagination. So I share it with you today. Feel the sea breeze with me, taste the salty air on our lips…feel the sand ‘neath our feet as the waves kiss the shore and the first drops touch our toes. And as we gaze out into the depths of the horizon…we will let our thoughts soar and dance across the vastness of the water…and we will fly free. Have a Lovely Day! Blessings!
