Living with Fantasy

Quotes and Notes #186, May 14

“Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.”—Dr. Seuss—

Sometimes when current circumstances become difficult, complex, stressful, or not particularly happy, it becomes time to relax, close your eyes, and go to visit your personal fantasy.

So, if you use the question, “I wonder what would happen if…” and then follow up with an imaginary, silly story, it will give you a momentary free vacation filled with delight. Of course, one must be careful to not go over the border and move permanently to a life in fantasy land.
