I'm sure this happens to most people. Because, really what can you be distracted with when driving
other than the radio, kid in the backseat, stupid driver to your left, oh, and traffic laws, other than your thoughts? Anyway.
I was leaving the Target shopping center, passing all sorts of stores and such, thinking about the variety of things, products, and shops that are allovertheplace, and how every one of them? Started with a simple idea. Just an idea. That any joe schmo had. A regular 'ole person like you and me.
Do you have a lot of ideas?
dreamer of a husband and I, we have loads of them. All the time. But, him more than me.
Some are simple ones, grand ones, probably-never-gonna-happen ones.
Everything starts with an idea. Look around. That sport you love to watch? Someones idea. That favorite restaurant you eat at? Someone's idea. Favorite-most-used baby product? An idea.
But they are ideas that are followed by an action. You know how your mom used to always say, "You never know till you try!" She's right. And it's true.
There are things I look back on in life and wish I had done, or tried. For example, as a kid, I was much too shy to try out for sports, or be part of teams and events (especially for school). Did I have the talent? Probably. I'm sure I could have learned. But instead, I let fear get to me. I didn't put any action into it. I didn't try.
I lived a lot of my adult life a bit on the chubby side. Just, because. Trying to lose weight seemed too hard, apparently. So? I just didn't. And who suffered? Me.
I have ideas about things, just like you do, probably. And sometimes I don't put them into action, or even talk about them out loud. Ever.
However, slowly but surely I'm taking more step-out's in my life. Too bad it took me this long. And we'll see where it leads. Or doesn't lead. But, like my mom always said, you never know till you try.
