Don't Let Facts Get in the Way of Your Imagination

source

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought. ~Albert Szent-Györgyi

You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus. ~Mark Twain

Trust that little voice in your head that says "Wouldn't it be interesting if..." And then do it. ~Duane Michals

Imagination and fiction make up more than three-quarters of our real life. ~Simone Weil

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. ~Henry David Thoreau

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
~Albert Einstein

I believe in the imagination. What I cannot see is infinitely more important than what I can see. ~Duane Michals, Real Dreams

To think creatively, we must be able to look afresh at what we normally take for granted. ~George Kneller

This week, I challenge you to step out of the box and let your creative side get some airtime.  Overindulgence in work and worry will not help you reach your goals any faster.  Take time to play and enjoy yourself.  If you're in a rut, maybe you've stopped dreaming.  If you're feeling down, revisit something from your childhood that always made you happy.  For me, there's nothing like a fresh box of crayons and a princess coloring book!!   Creating a richer, fuller life is sometimes as simple as realizing that you are an artist and your palette is your life.  You're only limited by your own perception.  xoxo

wow, I really needed to hear this. With finals around the corner, I've been stressing for weeks. I guess it would be good to take my mind off of things for a moment and express!

Thanks for this amazing challenge
xoxo,

So glad this helped you, Daisy! Sometimes we just take ourselves too seriously. There's a lot of heavy and serious in the world already, ya know?!
