Imagination is Everything

Einstein said imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. What are your coming attractions?  I can’t wait to see the trailer….I have the popcorn ready.

I have a vivid imagination – too vivid sometimes. It’s always been incredibly easy for me to get lost in a dream world. As a child, I was a champion at playing ‘Let’s Pretend.’ As a teen (and an adult) it was so easy to get lost in day dreams – usually at a time when I was supposed to be focusing.

I used to get criticized for being so dreamy, and for a long time in adulthood, I tried to put a damper on my imagination and ‘live in the here and now.’ It was hard, and I wasn’t successful and I was miserable. Then one day I read the book The Secret and I realized that daydreams and imagination are good things. They help you figure out what you want and where you want to be. Like Einstein said, imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions. He was a pretty smart guy, if he thought imagination was good, I’m going to roll with it!
