I think you're so right that we may need to regain the trust of our ideas when we don't interact with them right away. And as for where they go when they go "elsewhere," I'm counting on being able to go there and track them down. LOL

I do often write down and save my ideas for later -- I have to because they always come to me when I'm doing or about to do something else. Or the first meeting with my idea is like strangers meeting on a train. :) I think we're both going in opposite directions and just happen to make eye contact.

By the time I try to write down what would have/could have happened from my glimpse with my idea, sometimes I feel like my idea doesn't recognize me. I guess it's that trust thing. Neither one of us wants to admit we made eye contact because then we'd have a relationship.

And then it gets hard. LOL

I have a hard time keeping a schedule, but I have a feeling the idea is showing up and looking for me too. One of these days we need to exchange home addresses. LOL

Donna Cummings

Melissa, I love this whole analogy. LOL This is perfect! Maybe you could ask that idea for its phone number, so you can start out by texting, and move up from there. LOL

I'm constantly writing ideas down, and the sad part is when I have a brilliant idea and find out it wasn't the first time the two of us had met. LOL Apparently I'd completely blanked out on it. Which makes me wonder if it's such a good idea after all. :)


Donna, when you've met your idea before and didn't realize it, then maybe this is strong evidence it is the BEST idea! It's meant to be...like the couple that places the personal ad in that song "Do You Like Pina Coladas?" But that song really messes with my head because they were both intending to cheat on each other. LOL

Many of my ideas seem familiar so maybe the ideas we shoo away tend to come back for a second chance. :)

Donna Cummings

Melissa, I know what you mean about that song! But they did find out how much they needed to know about their partner -- so maybe it's the same way with our ideas. We think we know them, but there's so much more that's hidden from us. :)

Thank goodness the ideas we shoo away come back for a second chance. They're twice as good! LOL


**Thank goodness the ideas we shoo away come back for a second chance. They're twice as good! LOL **

I think that the concept of reincarnation applies to ideas. Shooing them away causes them to die temporarily. They are then reborn in slightly different form. The cycle continues until the idea mutates sufficiently to reach the state of Nirvana.

Nirvana is acceptance into your story. LOL

Donna Cummings

Q, I think that's an incredible idea. I like it! So I'm not *forgetting* things, I'm giving them a chance to have a rebirth, so they can reach Nirvana. Wow. That makes me feel so much better! :)
