While I was in China, I had to do a training in a specific branded program in teaching children a new language using music. The instructor was this darling girl Poca, I quote “like Pocahontas”, and her favourite phrase was: “Just imagine!”. She’d say it with this little rise at the end which actually made you imagine sparkles and rainbows and other magical beings bouncing of said rainbows.
I have very fond memories of this training. “Just imagine!” it’s your first week in and your manager who’m you literally just met the day before show’s up absolutely hungover, if not still drunk.
He continues to make a complete ass of himself throughout the day and at some point even suggests “retching – to retch” as a suitable activity to implement TPR (total physical response) with the kids XD
Niws, drifting off again. Poca was certainly right in channeling your imagination and to “Just imagine!” a solution, a better way to cope or simply the blissful end of whatever it is you’re enduring.
Sometimes we get so caught up in our misery we loose perspective. We get tunnel vision and forget there’s more to life than this bull. I’m not saying you should pretend that everything is A-ok, but try taking the focus off of being miserable. I know it’s not an easy thing to do. I once said to my friend “I feel this entire situation is like a thorn in my eye. Sure I try not to focus on the pain, but the fact remains I’m blind.” Very dramatic, I know. But now “Just imagine!” all the beautiful things you can still see with your other eye. Catch my drift…
So “Just imagine!” beyond all the problems and drama. And remember no matter how rough the storm, it too shall pas.
Happy Monday everyone!
