anything can be reimagined

September 16th, 2013


“… whatever is given, can always be reimagined.” – Seamus Henryimagination portugese



This is a simple one. It is about re-imagining … and the understanding that anything can be re-imagined.


Now. This isn’t about imagination … this is about the ability to look at things differently … re-imagining as it were.


Re-imagining is a powerful weapon we have in our arsenal.


And I don’t mean a country’s military arsenal but rather in an individual’s. You may call it a tool in your tool kit … but I believe it is significantly more powerful than even the strongest drill you can find at the home improvement store. In fact … It may actually be the most powerful weapon you have in Life.


A lot happens to us in Life.

And I imagine that those experiences can often make one not only reticent with regard to the future … but even maybe fearful of the future.


And this is where re imagining truly has its power.


The power is within accepting what may be a somewhat poignant thought … that we often need to re-imagine the way life could be … rather than assuming that it would always be the way it had been.


It doesn’t have to be more wonderful than you had ever thought.

It doesn’t have to be more stupendous or spectacular.


It is just re imagined.


It is just as Seamus suggests … nothing is truly given.

And whatever is … can always be reimagined.


What was true yesterday may not be true today.

And what is true today may not be true tomorrow.




That doesn’t mean truth is not real.


It simply means we have this powerful weapon to be able to reimagine that which is ‘given’ … in ways that creates new Truths.


This pertains to business <assuming you kind find someone who is willing to do it>.

It certainly pertains to life.



Too often I believe we forget we have this ‘re-imagining’ power and accept the given.


Silly us.

All of us. Because all of us have this ability.


Just remember.


Anything can always be reimagined.


Be a ‘nefelibata’ … in Portuguese … be a cloud walker and re imagine what society and Life may suggest as ‘the given’ to you.
