What are your wildest imaginings? Would you like to live that life right now?
For one moment, suspend your belief, and pretend that it is possible to live the life you have dreamt of. If you were to watch a movie of your dream life, in living color and vivid life-like detail, what would that life look like?
I bet that in your movie you’re debt free and have money in the bank. I’m sure you, your family and your pets are healthy and happy and secure. You probably smile for no reason, and often.
Hopefully, you learned to prioritize correctly, placing at the top of your list: living in joy, connecting with people you love, and helping those in need – and at the bottom of your list: money, possessions, and winning at all costs.
You will have money, possessions, and you definitely will win, but to place those needs above happiness, good health, and people that love and support you is often times to sacrifice the latter.
If we place love and kindness, and being generous with our time and money above all else, then money, security, and material possessions show up in perfect time.
We must participate, work hard and smart, and have the courage to take our next purposeful step, but we cannot live without friends that are there for us in the tough times, family that puts up with our bad behavior and loves us anyway, and a sense of joy and happiness that keeps us buoyant as life drags us down.
No one escapes life’s tough blows, but when we armor ourselves with the tools of real strength, then we are able to pop back up after being knocked down. Life is easier when our outlook is sunny.
Life becomes a heavy burden when our spirits are low, or we are depressed.
One undeniable fact is: life takes tremendous work. We are in an endless cycle of work from birth to death. So why not choose to live our dream life instead of a mediocre life? We might as well have fun.
David Thoreau said, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.”
We make choices in every moment. The majority of our choices are unconscious and automatic based on our core beliefs. Belief can be changed, and we then respond differently as a result.
Our imagination is our doorway into the divine. You hold the only key. Locked inside your own magical garden is found every possibility, and you get to create whatever you desire – it’s a blank canvas. No one is judging or condemning and you are free to be yourself , , , you are safe.
Visit your dream self by journeying into your imagination – go on an exhilarating vacation into a world you designed and built. It can be decorated with moose antler chandeliers, or draped in pink velvet petunias. You can create a peaceful life of fulfillment and love, built in the horn of plenty, in the city that calls to you. You have all the power. Go wild!
Take a trip into your fondest desires to live the life you’ve imagined, and soon it will be evidenced in your real life . . . called your reality.
Thank you, Thoreau!
