Looking at the clouds

Lie on your back, look up at the clouds and figure out what they look like? Imagine the fire breathing dinosaur, the horse running freely or a quiet mountain. I like to do this sometimes; it is really fun with your children they have great imaginations and are never afraid to “see something” that we struggle to.

Albert Einstein, a man of great imagination, wrote several quotes regarding imagination.

“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere”
“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions”
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand”

In our journey to a healthy and fit lifestyle we are so quick to take out the imagination of it all. We feel we are destined to remain a certain size, shape or look. We don’t imagine that we could be strong enough or fit enough to run a race, lift a certain amount of weight, and eat a different food. By limiting ourselves we are taking out any possibilities of great things to come. If we take the time to imagine how we ultimately want to be we can put a process in place to take us there.

What do you see in your clouds?
