Everyday we have an opportunity to make our lives fun or exciting simply by using our imagination or changing how we look at things.

Those who constantly rely on external sources to be entertained or amused are missing out on one of life’s greatest cost-free pleasures.

Not only does relying on external sources create and reinforce the illusion that you need someone or something outside of you to be happy, it distances us from one of the most powerful tools we have:

IMAGINATION.

As Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

Children who haven’t grown up relying on TV or video games to be amused use their imagination often. A box, a tube, or a stick become can create entire worlds and keep them occupied for hours.

Children instinctively use their imagination throughout their development. Often to their own delight and the delight of those around them. The fact is, most people enjoy watching others, even animals, in the act of play.

Nowadays, it appears more and more adults rely more on being entertained than finding ways to entertain themselves. Even seeking knowledge can be fun (and extremely beneficial), and yet many lose countless hours of their lives watching mindless television. It’s not that there isn’t a place for this, but to do this excessively is to miss out on other more rewarding, and certainly more creative, experiences of life.

One is never too old to play. Those who scoff at the idea fail to realize that play is often associated with one of the primary contributing factors of staying youthful.

As a wise person once said, “You don’t stop doing things because you get old. You get old because you stop doing things.”

Life can be a fun adventure any moment of any day simply by changing how you look at it.

To be a passive player in the game of life is to miss out on many of the amazing experiences life has to offer.

Life can be an adventure, any moment of any day, simply by changing how you look at it. You, above anyone else, is in control of how you see the world and how you live in it.
