Anything We Want February 25, 2014

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, People, Poetry, Word Play.

FlyWe can be anything we want
Anything at all

We can tower over the trees
Or play it small

We don’t need a degree
To be an astronaut
And fly to the moon

Imagineer wanted . . . no experience necessary

Huey,-Dewey-And-LouieA quest!
A quest!

Climb aboard that mighty steed
What experience do we need
To soar in the clouds

Lifted by our inner composer
Fed by our inner artist

Unfettered by Ego, we have no anchor in the past

Mickey-OKWith no masks to block our view
We are as we are

Free to be
Anything we want

Aah . . . that’s better!

I like being me! I just need a little fine tuning.. 😀

nrhatch - February 25, 2014

That’s a good place to be, Pix. 😎

I have learned to be comfortable with myself, warts* and all.

* For warts read: flaws!

nrhatch - February 25, 2014

Yup. It’s better to accept the fact that we are “just human” without bemoaning our flaws. 😀

I’m an imagineer! 😀 I can work anywhere, anytime 😉

nrhatch - February 25, 2014

Me too! Right now, I’m an imagineer imaging that it’s Happy Hour! 😀

diannegray - February 26, 2014

YAY – I’ll be in that – cheers 😀

“We can be anything we want
Anything at all” – not so sure about that Nancy. Doesn’t sit easy with me. I think that’s where all our Walter Mittys are born. Having said that, I must admit Walter Mitty is quite a guy. I like him. 🙂

nrhatch - February 25, 2014

I actually meant it in a “Walter Mitty” sort of way . . . using the power of imagination to “be” whatever we want to be.

Like kids, who might use a single cardboard appliance box to “fly to the moon” or ride to the top floor of the Empire State Building or become Robinson Crusoe.

Don - February 26, 2014

Okay, sits easy with me now. 🙂

Your initial reaction is what sparked this . . .

I saw a commercial, featuring the mother of a child born with Down’s Syndrome, with the tagline, “He can be anything he wants to be.”

My first reaction was, “That’s ridiculous. No one with Down’s Syndrome is ever going to make it as a Brain Surgeon.”

But then I thought, “What child with Down’s Syndrome would ever WANT to be a brain surgeon? Maybe a child with Down’s Syndrome can be anything s/he WANTS to be.”

Maybe when we’re honest with ourselves, our desires and dreams take into consideration ALL our unique qualities.

You are right about the children, Nancy! My grandchildren, at three and nearly five have such vivid imaginations, unfettered by ‘but’s’ and ‘what if’s’ or self censure. I learn a lot from observing them! 🙂

nrhatch - February 26, 2014

I love watching kids at their age when they use their imaginations to FLY! Such a treat.

6. Val Boyko - February 26, 2014

Imagineer! I Love this term. 🙂

nrhatch - February 26, 2014

It reminds us to give our imaginations a test drive from time to time ~ what a day for a daydream!

I don’t know why, but this made me think of my older son in preschool. The teacher asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and said, “a princess!” She asked, “You mean a prince?” And he said, “No, a princess!” He totally embraced being what he wanted to be 🙂

nrhatch - February 26, 2014

That is so cool! Being a Prince is a tough job . . . they’re often recruited to “slay dragons.”

8. My Light Bag - February 28, 2014

We can be anything we want to be, But it would be magical to be what we were MEANT to be 🙂

nrhatch - February 28, 2014

Perhaps following what we WANT . . . leads us to our intended purpose.

9. sufilight - February 28, 2014

I love it! A new word has been added to my vocabulary. I am an Imagineer! Whoo hoo. 😀

nrhatch - February 28, 2014

Reclaiming the lost art of daydreaming is so good for our well-being and stress levels. Imagineers to the rescue!

10. Three Well Beings - March 1, 2014

Words to live free by! 🙂 I love “Lifted by our inner composer
Fed by our inner artist,” in particular!

nrhatch - March 1, 2014

Well, the best imagineers create soundtracks, costumes, and set designs. 😀
