>People often cannot allow themselves to think certain things. It might be an idea, ‘God exists’, or maybe ‘God does not exist’. It might be about a relationship, ‘I am going to leave him’. It might be about your career, ‘I am going to change careers and move to another town’. It might be about fitness ‘I am going to run a marathon’.

Those things are all too big, too far advanced for you to wrap your head around. You can’t think them, you won’t think them. And if you do, you quickly follow it with, ‘no, that’s insane’ or something equally dismissive. But the idea remains, tucked in the back of a drawer in your mind.
Eventually one or more of those ideas might actually sound not so insane. You might think them achievable and bring them back out into the sunlight of contemplation. What matured, you or the idea? The idea never changed. The idea that I could run a marathon is the same idea now, less than 2 weeks away from me actually running my first, as it was a year ago when it was in my ‘insane idea’ drawer!
What insane idea do you have that you need to take another look at?
