Self-Care Challenge (Day 245): Talking About Ideas

I love mulling over ideas.

In fact, the only thing better is getting together with friends who also love to talk about ideas.

Whether you’re part of an official mastermind group, or simply have a handful of friends who enjoy thinking and talking about life’s infinite possibilities as much as you do, these kinds of conversations often lead us to action.

The truth is that each of us believes what we hear ourselves say out loud. And, unless we deliberately place ourselves in situations where we can give a voice to our thoughts, they often stay buried inside of us. It makes me wonder how many solutions, inventions and beautiful contributions have been left undiscovered–all because there was no outlet for them.

Talking about our ideas is a form of self-care because it gives us a chance to collect feedback, to understand how the ideas may play out in real life, and…to make them even better.

I feel fortunate to have a number of friends who love talking about ideas rather than gossiping about other people, or dwelling on what is wrong with the world. These uplifting ideation sessions always leave me feeling a renewed sense of energy and determination.

While we may not be able to solve the world’s problems over a cup of coffee, we can at least put smaller changes into motion that set the stage for larger ones. In essence, we can create the conditions for a better world.

What are you putting into motion?
