You know what?
As kids, when we have rich imaginations and pursue interests and stimulation with reckless abandon, we have it right.
When we are making up stories and acting out in certain ways, we are always acting out what we have seen adults do. As kids we are reproducing the adult imagination with our own slant.
What does that tell us about us as adults, when we discount kids imagination and ability to imitate as immature?
That we are not noticing that our own habits and patterns are simply accepted and patterned ideas, imaginary realities.
As children we have it right, because we know the boundaries of that imagination are fluid, changeable.
As adults, our trap is that we forget that. Children are our constant reminder that we can chose our reality.
We can make it look and feel and sound however we like 🙂
