The Salt of My Life #writebravely

For a long time while I was a child, I thought I was weird. Well, actually I am. No, not weird, but slightly quirky in bits and pieces. You see, I love daydreaming. I observe something and then my imagination blatantly ignores the real world and opens up an enchanting world where anything is possible.

Fish could sail through air, rainbows could be seen underwater, flowers could sing the loveliest tunes, roads made of exquisite jewels, elephants could be as small as ants, we could have dinosaurs as pets, and our houses would be on clouds! Oh, the many magical things have I daydreamed… each one as precious and rare as the next.

My imagination opens the doors to spaces where I can experience a world that exceeds reality. My mind and vision are broadened by what I see and feel. Yes, feel. These daydreams of mine are as real as reality for me.

It is my refuge during days filled with life’s harshness and bitterness. Imagination helps me overcome the most will-breaking days of my life. When I’m in doldrums, my imagination with it’s vivid visions of positivity and brilliance instills me with hope, courage, and strength to pull through and get back to business.

Imagination also fuels my writing. Without it, my writing would be soulless.

If there’s one resource that’s stood the test of time, and been by me through all the shades of life, it is my imagination and my daydreams. They infuse a distinct flavour to life. Perhaps, they’re the salt of my life.

What’s the salt of your life? Do you have a resource that you have or use in life?

  1. Love the idea of the salt of life that kick us into action. Your rendering is powerful and touches our senses. I am striving to live in the moment. Friends are the salt of life for me.

    • Your words always are a boost! ๐Ÿ™‚ True, friends too are an integral part of our lives – a second family who you get to choose all on your own!

  2. None of us would have been in this space if it was not for our imagination and our love for day dreaming. Yet we fail to acknowledge that. Loved the way you have written this post ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you so much Susan! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been guilty of curbing my imagination these past few months due to life’s issues – this post was a wake me up call for myself and others who’ve lost this precious element.
