Your mind needs nutrition from many types of sources. One is experience, you know the “hands on” learning type of thing. Another is from performing daily responsibilities in life. And ideally your experience and responsibilities learn to coexist in a comfortable relationship as you become wiser through the doing.
Of course, as we know life isn’t quite that simplistic.We fall down and often no one is around to kiss our “boo-boo’s” to make us feel all better.
This is where imagination comes in, belonging right there in the mix of hopes, dreams and wishes. We need imagination as a form of mental nutrition/stimulation too. (Some of our past and present geniuses ‘genii’ have often referred to imagination as being exceedingly beneficial in their own works.)
Our imagination allows us to be free from within and often its liberating on the outside too.
So use your imagination, I recommend at least one teaspoon of “magic potion” (your imagination) a day for optimal health!
In nature there are all kinds of days. Good ones and bad ones. Mother nature works that way. Yet almost every single one us enjoys watching nature in action when it comes to the care of the little ones. Cars will stop (I’ve seen this happen myself) to allow a duck and her ducklings safe passage across a busy street, also with deer and their youthful fawn!
It’s this immediate “feel good” feeling we get. I don’t know if it’s watching the continuation of life, or some more basic instinctive thing left over from when we were young ourselves.
But I do believe, on those days, when we see any young life renewed, it is a most superlative day (in my humble opinion) to witness the event!
Thank you for stopping by, I hope your week is going well, with a few superlative moments thrown in for good measure!
Okay, it’s always a good day to share a smile, not only to brighten another person’s outlook but to also feel better yourself – in the doing. So smile, and if you don’t feel like smiling right now … well then …
Have a great weekend, be good to yourself and those around you!
