What would the world be without those whose imagination can take them anywhere they please? What would we be if we could not conjour up images of a world and experience unlike our own? I would venture that the world wouldn't be as good a place.
That being said, what happens to those people who are always wondering: "What if?" Do they ever find an answer to that everlasting question? I feel like I am one who regularly asks that question. I think that has the opportunity to make me a better person as I am open to more ideas and opportunities. The challenge with it (for me) is that even if I'm in a situation that I should be happy with, I find myself asking the same question. While nobody should "settle" for an experience or a world that does not reach expectations, is it ever possible to stop asking that question of yourself and those around you when you are happy with things? I feel that I am in a perpetual state of "What if?" and that can take away from enjoyment of the moment. What can change that? Being genuinely happy with one's life? I feel like even that is not adequate. Questioning things may be part of the hard-wiring of some of us. That still doesn't provide a solution. Not a bad target, but no solution. Maybe the answer is 42. Somebody wake me if I'm right.
