How do you allow yourself to feel good when the world is crazy making?

How do you allow yourself to feel good when the world is crazy making?

There are stories throughout history of those of us who not only survived horrible times, but thrived. In each story that I have read, it includes a great imagination and hope.

One particular story that touched me was a group of students hiding in the rubble of London while the city was being bombed in WWII. The bombing was relentless; the smoke from the fires choked them; the lack of sleep and safety terrified them. What kept them from going crazy and losing hope? The group decided they would write about their experiences and make it into a movie when the bombing stopped. They kept notes of the experiences and wrote about how they would include them in the movie. Each one of them used their imaginations to develop the movie script and scenes while hiding from the flames and the bombs.

What notes do you want to keep to help you imagine a different and hopeful world? We can lose our control of the circumstances, but no one can take control of our imaginations. Any survivor of the concentration camps can tell you that your mind and your spirit are your own. I want you to imagine the world you want and then continue to live and hope that it will happen. It did for the “others”..

May I help?
