Dreams Do Come True
Part of the learning process of life is the trial and error of different mindsets. With constant change in our surroundings and the universe being disordered as per physics, we are almost forced to apply new ways of thinking in order to adapt; it’s called survival. But maladaptations can also occur and impact our future.
Maladaptive thoughts are the ones which don’t serve your best interest; they are there to set you back or prevent you from moving forward. They are not always implemented on purpose; many times, your unconscious mind is responsible for maladaptive thoughts.
Part of these maladaptive thoughts is the burial of your imagination. For instance, something very stressful happens in your life, initiating a change in mindset which also involves the loss of your imagination. By observing past failures and reacting too strongly, unconsciously or consciously, you start to lose interest in your creative forces.
Imagination should never be given up on. Some people claim that this great ability of the mind is what God gave to man as one form of proof of his existence; that God also imagined life before it was created. Why would you throw away what God gave you? Imagination is a gift that can set you free.
Many people become frustrated with their imagination because they do not see the results which they’ve been longing for. This is part of the process! By agreeing to imagine, you are accepting the fact that what you imagine may never come true. But this shouldn’t stop you from playing!
Imagination should be a fun mental process that gives you aspiration. But as with anything, breaks are needed or else your imaginative forces will burnout. And keep your expectations low for Pete’s sake! Stop being so hard on yourself all of the time, expecting this and that. Allow nature to take its course.
Living life is your first gift. Imagination is your second. Dreams coming true is your third and final gift!
