Do you feel tired of your everyday routine? Do you wish to be somewhere else at this point in your life—just enjoying your life to the fullest or simply doing nothing? Things happen every day and sometimes, their overwhelming presence makes you yearn to escape away from reality, and be happy. Having fun helps us to take it with a grain of salt, the trials and obstacles we sometimes face on our journey.
But we often lose our inner spark and the drive that makes us wake up every morning with enthusiasm. We seem to forget that life is meant to be lived with balance and harmony. The difficulties of life, the environment, and the negative actions we encounter daily, quietly hide, without realizing it, the fun and frivolous side of our lives.
The Reality of Life
With a state of mind anchored among the problems of the day, little by little we begin to look at bad habits for happiness and an escape. Alcohol, drugs, and other activities to escape the present moment cast a thick mist on our soul. When our heart stops using the imaginary to travel, our body and our thoughts betray us with a false image of happiness and of a good life. We run towards every shiny object. We seek temporary relief to fill up the void in our hearts. We buy new gadgets and material things to ease our feeling of emptiness. We desperately search for people, things, and places to help us ease our burden.
We are all trying not to miss out on what we believe will unleash us from the chains we have tied ourselves with. While ignoring the physical and mental signs that manifest inside us and that they are shouting at us, the path taken will make us lose the meaning of our lives. We begin to hate our daily routine and resent the constant pressure from our bosses, peers, family members, or friends. At this juncture, we deserve a break.
Is there a way out without abandoning your current existence? Fortunately, there is one way to recharge your energy and review your present life. The solution is so simple and can also be difficult. Only a desire to change the path we are on will push us towards a happy horizon. Take a break, close your eyes. Observe how life is beautiful when influences from outside your body no longer manifest themselves.
The Power of Imagination
As adults, we experience the harsh truths of real competition and survival. We face the constant discomfort and struggle that life throws on us. We realize that life is a bed of roses with thorns, always ready to stab us when we are not careful. We yearn for the days during our childhood when we are free to spend all day living in an imaginary world, creating fantasies that take us to the secret wonderland and infinite space where everything is possible.
Imagination is a powerful tool that we have at our disposal. It is the gateway that can transform our lives from ordinary to extraordinary. It is the key to living a joyful, meaningful, and creative life. Yet, we seem to forget the power of our mind to create visuals that can influence our mindset and feelings. We stop daydreaming, thinking that it is just for the young dreamers who do not have access to the multiple ladders of success. But there is nothing wrong or childish about tapping our imagination to shape our mental well-being. Think of it as a brain exercise that strengthens your cognitive muscles, bringing you to a deeper realm of consciousness.
It is a door to escape reality.
Life sucks sometimes. We need to escape for a while and release the negative energies that envelop our being. All the bad news, crimes, violence and sadness around us can dampen our happy spirits, viewing life in uncertainty. The ongoing pandemic is taking its toll on our mental health, making us feel stressed, bored, or afraid of the future.
Choosing to be optimistic during this time is vital to our well-being and happiness. It requires flexing our imaginative muscles to trigger hope by tapping our power to visualize good things in our lives. Hope is the glue that keeps us holding on to our dreams, our goals, and our own reality. When there is hope, there is transformation and change. These two elements are vital to our own existence.
It is the key to innovation.
“Reality is just an illusion, but a persistent one.” — Albert Einstein
In essence, reality is the outward manifestation of what we decide to do in this world. It represents the things we accept and pursue. But in this real world, there are limitations and rules that govern us. They bring frustrations and emotional fatigue, making us feel restricted and paralyzed to live the life we want.
Our imagination is a vital key to recreate or reshape our lives. Think about the things and situations that make your life difficult. Is there a way out? Can you do something to end your constant dilemma? Use your imaginative power to delve within and find innovative ways that will enhance your day-to-day tasks. Stop perpetuating the reality that does not give you fulfillment and tap your passion to enhance your life and the world around you.
It ignites passion.
Going through our mundane tasks every day saps our energy and enthusiasm. All the bills to pay and responsibilities to deal with can sometimes dictate how we live our lives and view our world. Oftentimes, we do not have the luxury of time to take a long vacation or pursue our own interests.
But there is one thing within our reach that can help us break away from reality—daydreaming. It lets us tap our imagination to bring back the things that make our hearts flutter with excitement and jump into action—our passion. Imagination helps us remember our childhood dreams, our secret fantasies, and the life we want to enjoy.
Indulge yourself to the magical experience that will bring back the spark in your heart, the spring in your steps, and the optimism to pursue your passions. Let mind and body be rocked by the waves of your imagination. Give free rein to your subconscious to transport you to the shores that you have hidden deep within you. The places where your heart carried your mind at a younger age.
It shapes your future.
Your imagination literally creates your reality. What you are doing right now is the product of your previous decisions that are connected with your primary thoughts and vision. So, if you do not like what is happening in your life now, go back to your secret world and visualize your future life. Use the power of your mind to manifest what you want in your life. Decide to live a better, healthier, and happier life. Live the way you like right now and work towards your goals. Balance your priority and passion, using your imagination to create harmony in your life. You don’t have to physically travel to experience magical moments. You only have to observe the world around you and feed your imagination with things you want to manifest in your life.
It is never too late to recapture our happy spirit. It is within us. It may lie dormant at the moment because we evolved into adults who take our career and personal responsibilities seriously. By tapping your higher intelligence through imagination, you set off a strong resonance with the mystical universe, attracting the universal laws to make your dreams come true. Let your heart and your mind bring joy and happiness to your body and soul. Suddenly, the discomforts you generate will disappear. Repeat this journey every day and watch your life evolve into what you always wanted.
