Ideas are a Renewable Resource
Ideas are a renewable resource. I pride myself to be creative yet I was frightened to set my thoughts free. My lack of confidence only hindered all that I could be. Because not only are ideas renewable, they keep getting better. By letting an idea set sail, you challenge yourself to do better. For some that's a daunting task because they believe they will never exceed their own standards if they try their best. It's similar to what I suffered, not wanting to put my best effort of posting original content because I thought I couldn't keep it up. Just because I can't think of a thousand brilliant ideas instantly doesn't mean I can't think of something later. As long as I keep experiencing life, there will always be a flow of ideas.
In case you were wondering I did finally click the publish button on that post after all that thinking. Months later, on New Years of 2011, I made a resolution to write a minimum of three posts a month and to put my best effort into them. We make it to present day and I've kept that resolution up to now and I intend to keep doing it.
I hope you enjoyed reading this because there are a lot more ideas from where this came from.
