Our only limitation is life is our imagination. Don’t ever allow your imagination to die within for it can change the world.
The Monday blues got you down today? Maybe you wanted to sleep in when the alarm startled you awake. Maybe you hit the snooze button a few times, dreading starting a week with so many things to do. Whatever the reason may be you just need a little spark to get your mind into a happier state.
In the hustle bustle of today’s society we are often too caught up in the pressing issues facing us in the present moment as well as the things we need to accomplish in the future. Often this leads to a neglect of not taking a moment for ourselves. A moment that could change our mood and change the course of the rest of our day.
We all want to be happier in our lives. But if we don’t take a few moments to change our thoughts than how can we change our mood. Here are Three simple tricks to make you feel happier today:
Putting on a smile is the best thing you can wear. It shows the world that you are a wonderful person. Can’t naturally smile right now? What if I told you that you are beautiful? Yes you. You are a beautiful person.
Here are a few other ways to put a smile on your face:
- Think of your pet if you have one. That’s almost always guaranteed to put a smile on your face
- Reminisce about a past experience in your life that you really enjoyed
- Think about your goals and dreams that you have for your life
- Sing or hum one of your favorite songs
You get the idea. Think of something that makes you happy that will make you smile.
Laughter truly is the best medicine in changing our moods to a more positive nature. When we laugh we almost instantaneously feel happier. We all love to laugh so why not a take moment and make yourself laugh? Even just a chuckle is sufficient.
Here are a few ways to help you get the most out of that laughter:
- Watch a funny video on the internet
- Think of a hilarious moment that happened in the past
- Look at a few jokes that cater to your sense of humor
- Have someone tell you a funny story
The only key here is that you have to laugh. Because life is too short to be taken seriously all the time.
Love is what makes the world go round. It’s something that we can never have too much of. It’s important that we not only love others but love ourselves. Love brings warmth to the heart and gives life more meaning.
Here are a few ways to express love for the ones you care about most:
- Call or text someone you truly care about and just tell them you love them. It could be a significant other, a child, parents, siblings, friends
- Think of a couple things that someone did for you to show their love for you
- List a few things about you that you love about yourself. There are no wrong answers
- Just spend a few moments expressing gratitude for all of the wonderful people that you have in your life
Love brings so much joy into our lives and we should be grateful to have this emotion. Sure there might be some heartbreaks along the way but love has a way of mended those wounds and making us stronger because of it.
I hope that you have a wonderful and joyous day today and for the coming days. Life is a beautiful adventure and in essence the key to a successful life is happiness.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he stuck it out.
Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow-
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you can never tell how close you are-
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit-
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.-John Greenleaf Whittier
When tough times have us down or when life seems hopeless, one more step is all it might take to change the tide. Whatever it may be that we are going through we must keep moving forward. We must have faith that our lives can be better than our current situations or circumstances.
“Success is failure turned inside out”. We can’t be afraid of failure because in reality failure only exists on one condition. If you quit. The other failures that you may perceive are only temporary defeats. If you keep going you will achieve success in any endeavor that you may choose.
Those down times that you have are learning experiences. The trials, tribulations, adversities, heartbreaks and defeats teach us more about life than our successes. Embrace the experiences. Find some value in these times because they will give you something to change the tide. The one thing you can’t do is quit.
It is when you are hardest hit that you mustn’t quit because at that moment if you try one more time, it could be the success you have been seeking for your life.
So don’t give up. Take one more step regardless of your pain. On the other side is a life of your dreams and if you are still breathing there still is hope for your future. I believe that you can take one more step. I believe that you can have what you desire for your life.
What impression did this poem have on you? I would love to hear your feedback on what this poem means to you.
Abundance is a mindset that is a goldmine that never depletes is resources. That is just what abundance is. A mindset. We can either focus on what we have or what we lack. Focus is the key word. For what we focus on we manifest within the realities of our lives.
Take a few minutes and think about what you are focusing on. Are your thoughts of abundance or of lack? You may not have everything that you want in your life. That’s fine because the future always has something in store for us. It’s our attitude towards the things we do not have that determines the mindset of abundance.
- Do you have faith in receiving the thing that you desire?
- Are you actively working towards attaining this thing?
- Are you expressing gratitude for this thing as if you already received it?
- Are your thoughts positive or negative?
Answer these questions truthfully for yourself. They will provide insight on whether you have an abundant or scarcity mindset. If you have the latter mindset then know one thing. You can change that about yourself. You just need to change your thoughts.
Easier said then done right? It doesn’t have to be a rapid change overnight. But you can make a simple decision to change right now and take the first small step in the right direction. Let’s say this affirmation for ourselves.
I live in a plentiful world. Abundance is everywhere around me and inside of me. I believe that life will provide me with everything I desire and I shall live abundantly in all aspects of my life
Really FEEL the abundance as you say those words to yourself. Begin the process of slowly changing your thoughts from that of scarcity to abundance. Do it enthusiastically because your future depends on it. We live in an abundant world. It’s time for you to give and receive in this world because this world has more than enough for all.
The main reason why I write is because inside of me there is something inside of me that truly believes that I must express and share my ideas with others. To inspire others that they can live their dreams and live a happy life of their own vision. Writing is something I never truly enjoyed until my senior year of high school where I took a creative writing class. There is where I learned the true joys of writing. With no real syllabus and the ability to allow my imagination to run wild I discovered that writing was something that gave me a sense of fulfillment.
As the years went on I lost touch with this enjoyment for others dreams and ambitions that I was chasing for my life. When I was getting ready to quit my job and take the leap to start my own company I took a week off. During that week an idea hit me. I desired to write a book. I began to write a few paragraphs here and there but it was must on the shelf because of my new business.
Fast forward to now I was searching for my passion in life. I wasn’t satisfied with where I was and wanted to find something that would make me feel alive again. One night the universe decided to hand me a gift. It was a book that I found on amazon prime reading. Find your passion: 25 questions you must ask yourself by Henri Junttila. I was intrigued so I began immediately to read it. There was one question to ask yourself and the book recommended that you write out each of your answers. About halfway through the book I rediscovered my joy for writing. I made the decision that I would find a way to make it my life’s calling.
I dug out my old book notes that I had from years before and began to organize them into what I believe would be the best way to write the story. As I write this post I am currently in the process of continuing my work on that book and plan to publish it sometime next year. I have to say that I’m loving every minute that I work on it. It is such a release of positive energy and expression for something that I truly believe in my heart.
My personal reason for starting this blog was to share my ideas and insights that I’ve learned over the years. I love the genre of self-help and it has had a major impact upon the person that I am today. I was try to write from the deepest chambers of my heart and make sure to convey my message in the best way possible. I want to spark something within my readers to make them take action in the dreams they have within their minds. Dreams that cry for their realization. Life is just too short not to live your dreams and do something that you love to do.
I will admit that I am a bit rusty in my writing but I’m happy for that. It gives me room for growth and the ability to hone in on my writing style. As well as create a sharper focus for the message I want to deliver to my readers. The essence of life is growth and when we grow that is when we feel alive.
If you are a blogger or an author reading this I would like to know your reason for why you write. The beautiful thing about life is that we all have a story to tell and I would love to hear yours.
When I decided that I wanted to start a blog I brainstormed several names for the site. I knew what I wanted to write about and the message that I wanted to convey to my readers. After a few names, one stuck and I knew that it would be the name for the blog. Imagination Salvation. It struck a chord with me.
So why Imagination Salvation? It is because I truly believe that the only limitation that we as human beings have is our imagination. Throughout the course of history time and time again the word “impossible” has been evaporated from society when an individual with imagination changed the course of human civilization. When we condition our minds with a positive mental attitude towards a purpose we feel is worthy of coming to fruition, imagination becomes the only limiting factor. We often settle for what we can conceive within our minds of what is possible for our lives based on limiting beliefs that we have set for ourselves.
Our imaginations are a blessing because they allow the finite mind to connect with a higher universal power. But as we grow up and become adults in society that imagination slowly dies. We allow reality to set in and we settle for concrete evidence of life that we can see in our physical world. It is limiting beliefs in our own minds because of external influences of society that we accepted as our realities of what is possible for us to achieve for our lives. It is a crying shame that imagination so often dies this way. Because it is a gift that we must cherish for us to live our life to its maximum potential.
We must revive that imagination that we possess in our minds. The reason being is that our imagination is an immensely powerful force. Through invisible forces it attracts to us ideas, concepts, inventions and theories that can change the course of human history. It also attracts to us everything that we see in our day to day realities and everything that will come to us in the future. We must save our imaginations by cultivating them and nourishes them because they will nourish us in return.
What if I told you that you can achieve anything in life? I mean anything. It is the truth. Your imagination is your only limit in life. Let your imagination run wild. You will live your life to its maximum potential. I believe that its possible for you. Set your goals high and don’t settle for anything less than your best.
