10 Amazing Life Lessons #4
The Imagination Is Powerful
Yes, imagination IS powerful.
If it weren’t for imagination we wouldn’t have books and stories. We wouldn’t have games and our children wouldn’t be able to amuse themselves for five minutes in the backseat without driving Mom and Dad totally bonkers by saying, “Are we there yet?” every five seconds during a five hour road trip!
Would any of us have been able to get through even a ten minute car ride if we’d had to put up with THAT ^^^^ since our children learned how to talk? No? Didn’t think so
Yes, we have Gameboys, PSPs, books, dinky cars, paper and pens and all manner of things to help keep our little sponges from absorbing Dad’s swear words as he makes a wrong turn or rant as some idiot driver cuts him off or mom’s incessant rattling off of the grocery list in her head since she either didn’t think to borrow the sponges pen and paper to write down the list or forgot the darned thing on the counter during the mad dash to get everyone into their snowsuits and the rest of the winter gear and out the door so she could be there when the doors opened so she could avoid the rush of the elderly who just meander down the aisles then stand in the middle of said aisle to gossip with someone they haven’t seen since last Saturday.
Poking fun at myself aside we wouldn’t have some very awesome authors, incredible games or even the ability to write if someone with an imagination hadn’t thought those things up in the first place then had the stick-to-itiveness to get them out in the market.
We wouldn’t have medicines and vaccines, computers, electricity without the imagination of their inventors and then of those who improved upon the original through the years so yes, imagination is powerful, not to mention necessary in today’s world and for the future.
