Books, movies, TV shows, and paintings – these are all forms of art. While many of us have the ability to be creative, we tend to waste our imagination on our fears. We allow ourselves to create problems and disasters before they even occur.
We can help others through sharing our experiences, entertain those around us with our stories, and add beauty to the world with our kindness. If we use our imagination in positive ways, we can make the world a better place. Our thought process should be used for thinking of ways to benefit our lives, not make them more difficult.
You may have heard the quote about worrying not solving anything. While this is true, it doesn’t always stop us from having destructive thoughts. Worrying is a natural thing that we all experience at one point or another. The key is not letting it control our lives.
The next time your imagination starts to wander, take note of what direction it’s heading in. If you don’t like where your thoughts are going, try to change them. Start using your imagination to create peace and beauty instead of anxiety and self-doubt.
