Reading time: 1 minute

My mind flits.  Some would say it’s undisciplined…I call it creative.  Some would say I’m illogical…I say imagination rules.  Some have said I pay little attention to facts…and they’re right, I prefer to keep my attention on what I want.

But…and even though it’s a big BUT, it has nothing to do with jiggles or ultra tight jeans or those unrelenting ten extra pounds.

But…every now and then I want evidence that I truly am an unmitigated, intransigent right brain thinker so I go back and check out this video.


Most people see the dancer turning anti-clockwise which indicates left brain thinking.  These are the logical, strategic, reality based thinkers.  Which apparently I’m still not!  How about you?

If you see her turning clockwise, you are in my camp.  We are the right brained ones, the impetuous, imaginative risk-takers.  But I’d truly like to be both, a little strategy would come in handy.

There must be some left brain function in me, I navigate through the world pretty well, don’t get lost in the car…not often and I can manage to learn new things, but I have friends who can turn her at will.  How the heck do they do that?

Maybe I should put my imagination to work and practice what I preach;  assume it, believe it, and then see it.  The challenge is I don’t want it that badly.  I have no intensity of feeling about it.  It’d be nice that’s for sure, but with such a weak kneed desire not much is going to happen.  And that’s true for any desire…it’s got to have passion behind it.  You’ve got to really, really want it.

Never mind since I don’t want it that badly, I’ll just focus on the things I really, really want…maybe an extra doughnut?

Encourage each other.

    And what would it mean if I could get your dancer to do a little jig ?
    I am in agreement that to reach one’s goal, or in your parlance “fulfill one’s desire”, there needs to be passion involved. I suppose that passion can be expressed through many different emotions/feelings ie: relief, joy, gratitude, happiness . . .
    Once again, your article provides wonderful food for thought. Thank you.
    Write on, Elle !

      Maybe it’d mean you were a genius? As far as which emotions work, probably all of them, at different times and for different experiences. Well…that’s true for me!
