“I’m not much of a math and science guy. I spent most of my time in school daydreaming and managed to turn it into a living.”
– George Lucas
Daydreams. Ahh. How nice it is to drift off into a world of fantasy, where we see ourselves the victors of an imaginary scenario. I love to daydream, as I’m sure you do too, but most of the time, it’s frowned upon, whether it’s a child lost in thought while the teacher is speaking, or an adult, sitting at her desk, bored with the mundane routine of her day.
I’ve been thinking about dreams lately, and how useful they are in helping us to create our reality. I remember times when I was younger, and I was told that I couldn’t do something, or achieve something, I would create a scenario in my mind where I had achieved the “unattainable” goal. Every time that I can remember imagining a scene like that, I did, in fact, achieve the goal. It may not have played out exactly like my daydream, but it did the trick – it motivated me to make it happen.
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
– Harriet Tubman
Somewhere along the line, I got busy with “life”, and stopped daydreaming, as I’m sure many of you did too, until recently that is – I’ve started to use this amazing positivity manifestation tool, to help me focus, and get motivated to make my dreams a reality again.
Blog Beats: Fantasy by Earth, Wind & Fire
Lots of times, we reprimand children for not paying attention, and of late, I hear of so many diagnoses of ADHD. I’m not a medical professional, so I can’t comment on that, but what if the kids are just imagining their dreams coming true – is that such a bad thing? Especially since we know that the use of imagery is a critical factor in creative visualization.
Take some time to get lost in your fantasies, make it family time. Encourage your kids to let their imaginations soar to heights unimagined, after all, look what George Lucas did with his daydreams. What have you got to lose?
Take a ride in the sky…all your dreams will come true.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
