Don't know about you but I come up with some great ideas (or so I think) only to walk away from the spot where the idea was concocted and lose the thought. As I'm walking to another room I find myself asking, "What was that again?" Oh boy...
For example, while doing the dishes I had a great blog post idea and even came up with a catchy title. I wanted to finish doing the dishes first though. My mother's voice rang in my ear, "Finish what you start before going on to something else." So being a dutiful daughter, I finished the dishes before writing down my great inspirational blog idea. Well, that'll probably be the last time for that nonsense. Next time, I will pause, grab pen and paper, jot down what came to mind, and THEN go back to finish the dishes.
You see the dishes will remind me they are there. In fact, they might even scream at me. But those thoughts that run randomly through my mind leave quietly. I have to go chase them down because they like to play hide-and-go-seek. Sometimes I find them, sometimes not so much. Can I get a witness??
The moral of the story - carpe thoughte (seize the thought - not an exact translation) because you never know if you will be able to seize it a second time. Can I get an "Amen"?
