Many times, exciting Ideas pop into our heads seemingly out of nowhere. They seem very doable. But more often than not, we ignore these thoughts. We brush them aside and do not act on them. There are times we do act on them and we are so glad we did! Still, there are lapses. They affect the actual quality of our lives.
Think about how many future plans have popped into your brain since you were left. Have you brushed most of them aside? Convinced yourself they are impractical based on fear? Perhaps a bossy friend has told you there’s no way delicate, little you could survive such an adventure. Listening to them, you chucked it out of your mind. What if you visited that refuse pile and pulled one or two of those notions back into the active pile?
Here is an example. I always, since I was about 8 years old, have wanted to go to the Taj Mahal in India. That notion has been on the refuse pile of excuses forever. What are some of my excuses? COVID, finances, a very long flight, and shots I’d need to get. Therefore this dream of my life has been snatched from the to-do pile hundreds of times.
Currently, it resides in some in-between Netherworld of my own making.
A photo of said Taj Mahal remains on my refrigerator as I write this post. Will it be taken off my fridge and resurrected?
Will I make it to the Taj Mahal anytime soon? I truly have no idea. I am pondering it daily.
Do you have your version of the Taj Mahal on your fridge? Or in your kitchen junk drawer? If so, are you making plans to actually do it? I’d love to hear from you. Especially if you take it off the fridge. Or rescue it from the junk drawer. For now, I’m having some iced tea and pondering what it would truly take to make this dream come true. In other words, don’t be me!
