imagination

Imagination knows no bounds

I spent the last two days with my four-year-old daughter in the hospital. She had a respiratory infection and had to stay until her oxygen levels were back to normal. As she was getting better, her energy and imagination got stronger and stronger. By the end of the stay, her hospital room was a rain forest and she was a purple fox who preyed on bubbles and would do anything to protect her cave. She has an imagination with no boundaries.

Think like a kid

Kids have the amazing capacity to create. Their brains are just developing and mapping. They don't have logical boundaries to stifle them. The possibilities are endless. Anything can happen.

My daughter always has a story. When she was younger, she told me she was not originally from earth. She came from a pink planet called Amora-mora and lived in a pink house. She lived there with her mother, who had yellow hair, and her father, who had a mustache. She came to earth in her pink rocket ship (which she built herself) and decided to live with her new family. Her imagination gives her the freedom to do anything, be anything.

We can also have the freedom of using our imagination. Once we allow ourselves to open our minds and use our imaginations with no limits, we can start to fully realize our vision. If there were no limits, no boundaries, nothing in  your way, what would you be? What would you do?

A couple weeks ago, I asked my daughter what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said, "A storyteller."  I thought it was the perfect answer.

Question

What do you want to be when you grow up, if there were no limits?
