Changing the way you see ‘the world’. Write your own world!

In university part of my English Literature course looked at the role of our imaginations. Life can and is drastically changed by the way we think. The mind literally has the capacity to change your world. There is the famous quote that says something along the lines of “You can chain my body but you cannot keep my mind in chains”. This morning I was thinking about how often we put ourselves in captivity by being too scared to think big. I have always been of the school of thought that over kill is better than under. I believe in bigger and better when it comes to the way we think about life.
Now I am not for a second saying that detail does not need to be paid to the small, or that we should spend our time trampling over people and randomly, flat footed stomping through life. No. Instead I believe that we should give our minds the free reign to think about the impossible; to challenge ourselves to be better by pushing boundaries; to use our minds to take ourselves to places we dream of and take steps towards living the dream. I want to wake up one day and have very little difference between the life I dream of and the life I live.

The great thing about blogging is it is a platform to live your dreams. Every one is a writer, expert, beauty specialist or tech genius on their blog; they are the master of their wordpress or tumblr URL. If we as people can learn how to tap into our inner genius and pursue online that we are scared to in the ‘real world’, I believe that there are changes that will begin to follow in our lives. Most people do not ‘have the time’ to pursue their dreams because they are too busy giving all their energies at a 9 – 5 that they absolutely hate. I should like to think that those of you reading this blog who are bloggers yourselves use your platform as a creative outlet. Let your blog be more than that; think about the power of your words or pictures today and think about the ways your writing can change your world.

    You’re absolutely right and I’m going to do as you advised – change the way I see the world. I’m going to give humor writing a shot on my blot. I take everything seriously and tend to be uptight about those things. I’m going to lighten up in 2011.
