New ideas are priceless and fragile at the same time. They must be handled with care or they will implode, never to be seen again. Who we share new ideas with is important during the initial stages.
Hold your idea close to your chest. Let it take form and then reconfigure itself. Give it permission to arise out of the ashes, the swamps, the fresh waters, the blue skies of your imagination.

Ideas are alive. The lifespan of an idea has to do with your willingness to explore, create and manifest it.
As ideas accumulate, some are crossed off the list while others build momentum. Every idea is important as they are stepping stones to the ones that will live on to flourish.
Just like inner thoughts, ideas are impermanent. They come and go!
