#Blogtober14 Cheers To The Unsuccessful Ideas

Several successful people have talked about how you have to fail a couple of times in order for people to start respecting you, so today's post is all about giving praise to what didn't get accomplished. It's also part of the process of letting go a few more worries.

Cheers to the unsuccessful ideas. I haven't forgotten about you. You didn't leave my mind as fast as you came. You visited and I sat you on. I planned and planned and planned some more on how to make you happen.

Three years ago there was the idea of making a birthday vacation trip happen every single year from then on. A year before that there was the scheme on how I could save up enough money to finally leave Houston again for a city where my name and face would be fresh. That goal of leaving Houston was set for two years. A couple years before that there was the idea of moving to Atlanta and becoming lost in the sea of CNN workers. A few years before that I held onto the idea of a cruise with friends, even though my mom tried to desperately kill that one and it worked. A couple years before that I remember coming up with ideas of getting the attention of a boy who put so many butterflies in my stomach I was afraid to act upon any of my thoughts.

Yes, I remember those and many more ideas that never came to fruition. Cheers to them. Cheers to being able to dream even if those dreams weren't able to make it into reality. Cheers to trying, even if the efforts became foolish mistakes to everyone else.

Cheers to the ideas that didn't make it. I'll never forget you.
