Our lives are a product of our imagination. How BIG are you dreaming?
“Stop that daydreaming!” my teacher would shout across the room as I found myself in a daze, daydreaming about my boy crush I was preparing to see at the sound of the bell, or the mouth-watering food that was waiting for me at lunch.
I was taught that daydreaming and fantasizing were “distractions” and unrealistic. But, isn’t that how all great things came to be — through a mere daydream or fantasy?
Everything that we see around us was once a fantasy. Heck, this internet and computer I’m using to type this, was once a figment of someones imagination, turned reality. So, tell me: Why are you afraid to daydream and fantasize about the things you desire in your life? And truly, I’m talking to myself here.
Daydreaming has literally launched astronauts to the moon. THE MOON.
I’ve been finding myself daydreaming (“fantasizing”) a lot, lately. Mainly about my future spouse, creative ideas and having my own space. Ya know, adult things, lol.
I’ve even felt like my imagination was taking me a bit too far. I caught myself mid daydream once: “Girl, get a grip,” I told myself as I daydreamed about my crush. “That ain’t gone happen” — snapping myself back into reality.
(Btw, do not ever shoot your own dreams down like that.)
Until, one day, my imagination truly led me to reality. I was SHOOK, okay. SHOOK! As they say: “Thoughts truly become things.” Everything that I desired was (and is) coming to me full circle.
I was shook because sometimes we do not realize how quick an innocent intention can come to fruition in our lives. I was also shook because people who don’t dream big dreams for themselves, will attempt to shoot yours down; sometimes unintentionally, thus, making you question your own wild thoughts.
We can literally use our imagination to our advantage to create the life of our dreams. But, here’s the thing: It will not work if you do not believe nor work towards it.
Every great thing first starts as an idea in our imagination, but it shouldn’t stop there if it’s something that we desire. We should also believe that it can and it will flow into our lives with ease — not force.
The new house, the career, the spouse — whatever your aspirations are, can and will flow into your life, naturally, as long as you believe.
What great (“unrealistic”) goals are you clinging onto in your imagination that you’re reluctant to work towards because it seems “too far fetched”? Imagining a career change? Bigger living space? A healthy marriage? An authentic friendship? A fit body and lifestyle? A life of travel?
Use your imagination, pray over your desires, and work towards them with pure intentions and confidence. Take full control of the fact that you have the power to bring into your life anything that you wish.
I’m encouraging you to dream. Keep dreaming, beloved. Keep believing. And, when it happens, embrace it.
