    Imagine Winning an iPad Mini...

    - 4 Comment(s)

    Sometimes we think that imagination is just for children. But we all imagine how things could be different, whether we're eight or eighty.

    What do you imagine? That you're in Paris rather than mowing the lawn? That you're taller? Shorter? That you've won the lottery? That you're having Italian for lunch rather than a tuna sandwich? That you've landed your dream job? Or that you're as witty as the main character from your favourite novel?

    This week, celebrate the theme 'Imagine' by checking out something that stirs your imagination...whatever that may be!

    Today I watched the movie Nanny McPhee on DVD. If I was a kid and I had to be in the care of someone like Nanny McPhee because I have done something bad, I would be scared right out of my mind. I would probably also smarten up and start cleaning up my act really quickly.

    I recently read Life's Operating Manual by Tom Shadyac which got me thinking about that little voice in your head that always gets you doubting yourself or acting out from ego. Imagine if you could stop listening to that, and go with your heart instead and really live from there. I think it would make the flow of life that much more enjoyable instead of the uphill battle it sometimes seems to be. With all the "stuff" out there, how can you step back and live simply.

    I seem to be on a mystery-thriller streak, the books are taking place in Atlanta Georgia. As the temperatures heat up in Calgary, I can imagine walking the mean, hot streets catching the bad guys using my brains and brawn :)
