Today when organizing my day, I was making folders for 2022 and it hit me how we have time to do new things, have new adventures, and make new plans. The key is to make the most of the year.
Here is a great quote from Michelle Reyes, PhD, that sums up the beauty of embracing the new year:
“Through our giftings and skills, we not only imagine a better and more beautiful world, but we also use our knowledge and abilities to bring that vision to reality.”*
There is such value in letting your imagination run in a positive way. It lifts our mood, enhances our hope, and jumpstarts fun ideas.
Try This: Imagine More
Sometimes we get scary movies or negative thoughts in our head. We need to focus on methods to get back to being positive, and get supercharged, like these:
- Get outside for a walk: Meander, wander, explore, and see what new ideas and thoughts emerge.
- Look at the moon and stars: Step outside at night and look up to spark new vistas to explore.
- Meditate or Journal often: Play with stories or dreams that engage your inner child and allow you to be creative.
Being busy and focused on work, family and other responsibilities, often your imagination and creativity get smooshed. According to Albert Einstein, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." **
So go play because it's time to imagine more!
