I have had this idea in my head for quite some time. It is not a complete idea. It is as if there is a short in my bright idea light bulb. This idea comes, and then it goes. But it always returns.
Sometimes the idea arrives as a package deal with a smattering of creativity. I think it out for a while, and then I dismiss it. Other times it appears to be more of a therapeutic idea, with no creativity involved. And then I forget about it for a while. But it always returns, and usually comes back with new ideas for how I might accomplish this idea of mine.
It has been dismissed several times by the notion that it has likely already been done by someone else. Have I checked into it? Well, no I have not. Why? Because if I found out it had been done already in some fashion, then I know that I absolutely would not even attempt it. I don't want to see any other versions of this very simplistic idea. I just want to move forward with mine.
Is it something huge? No it is not. It is small and it is easy.
It was several days ago when I sat down to write about this idea, and how I might set about in making it a reality. But to write about it (to blog about it) would nearly be a commitment to the idea. So it was dismissed yet again. Yet hear I sit on Thanksgiving night, and I am writing in my blog about this idea.
I spent the day with some treasured people . . . my family and friends. And believe it or not there was this light bulb in a kitchen ceiling at my sister-in-laws house, and it was not consistently lighting. It was on and it was off. I silently watched the dilemma of my husband trying to fix it, and I thought about my silly little on again, off again idea. My sister-in-law explained that when this light is not working at night, the kitchen gets pretty dark.
Hmmm . . . does this mean that if I don't attempt to follow through with this idea, I'll be in the dark? Perhaps it was a sign. I do believe in signs.
So maybe . . . just maybe . . . there is a commitment here to something. Maybe . . . just maybe . . . there is a "Coming Soon" sign to be put out. And maybe . . . just maybe . . . I will encourage others to join me on the journey.
