Remember when you were a kid and you would imagine a lot of awesomeness? You would imagine you could fly, you were a princess, a super hero, a famous athlete or singer, the list goes on and on. There were times I’m sure, you put your whole heart and soul into those pretend moments.
As adults we put a lot of effort into imagining things but unfortunately they aren’t always fun. Another word for this is worry. How many times have you thought, “What if……”, “It might…..” or “That could…..”. This can cause many sleepless nights among other problems. So why do we do this to ourselves?
I’ve heard before that if you create these imaginary situations, they won’t happen. Hey, if that works, I would like some of that magic. I’ll bottle it and make millions! Worrying won’t stop things from happening but it certainly stops you from enjoying the moment you are in.
Next time you notice that your imagination is spiraling out of control with worry, take a deep breath, tell yourself to stop wasting precious moments on what might go wrong and enjoy what is going right.
