Look well. What can you see? The clouds or the images? Imagination is key. Create your own happy place.
Whilst growing up, one thing I enjoyed doing in my head was forming images with the clouds. As the clouds gathered, or disappeared, I could see different images.
Sometimes a man, sometimes a lion, sometimes a flower, sometimes a cradle, sometimes a baby being cuddled, sometimes very gigantic outstretched arms, it could be just about anything. Whatever I allowed my eyes to see had to be both suiting and soothing. It had to be both warm and consoling. It didn’t really matter if anyone else could see the same thing I saw as long as I could.
Maybe I can’t make such happy thoughts from the clouds anymore. But I haven’t lost my sense of imagination. It comes in handy when I want to recoil. It helps me enjoy my own company.
Who else loves his/her own company? What do you do in your own company?
