    I mean a lot with everything I do

    and I use my imagination in odd ways. Like When chatting with someone I can imagine them saying their sentences how I think their facial expression might look and there tone of voice. It's very entertaining. I can also look at pictures and imagine what made them make that...

    Owe a Lot to It!

    I don't know what I'd do without it. I owe a lot to my fabulous and colourful imagination! Otherwise, the world would be without my make up words and rhymes. What a sad world that would be!

    It Makes You What You Are

    Imagination is a wonderful and beautiful gift. God blessed me with an extremely active one. I had a imaginary friend named Lizzie when I was four. Lizzie and I would carry on conversations quite often. She was even a bridesmaid at my wedding to a giant stuffed monkey named...

    It Is Great Fun!

    To use your imagination on a daily basis is almost like therapy for the body. You can imagine anything you want and it will either get your adrenaline going or it will calm you down and make you feel like you are in a meadow with a light breeze and the smell of daisies all around...

    It's Free.

    You are able to go anywhere you want, be anything you want, do anything you want,when you allow your imagination out of it's tight confines. Even as a tiny kid I had make believe friends, and I entertained myself for ages with them.  You can create anything in your mind you...

    It's Necessary to Convey the Spirit of Life!

    Imagination, in my opinion, is just another root of intelligence. You have to have imagination in order to have intelligence because it provides that oompf to give you ideas no one else would think of. It's the logic inside the logic. A critical cognitive skill!

    Non-existent Places

    Okay, so tell me. Do any of you ever dream about places, and then think about them later during your day? I do, a lot. I'll be sitting in class, just daydreaming, imagining what these places would be like it they were real. But, what if they were real? The world is a big place...

    Most People's Imaginations Are Too Limited
