Early last week I acted upon an idea. I went into Walmart, picked up two large 100-count bags of wooden clothespins and took them to the express checkout line. The clerk's eyebrows shot up when she saw my purchase, and she laughed.
"Now are you going to use all those to do your laundry, or are you doing something else?"
I could not resist. "No, these are for craft items which will help me financially with expenses during an overseas trip this summer. " she asked me to repeat that. Then she laughed again.
You have to be willing to think differently, and be bold enough to act upon those ideas. Don't think
The clerk's mockery in her laugh was unmistakable, but I really didn't mind. After all, she only saw a pile of clothespins and thought it ridiculous that someone would purchase so many. Where will she be in July? Very likely here, doing the same thing she was doing this day. As for myself though, I've got my sights set at something much bigger - because I'm not just accepting things as they are as though that is all they ever will be, but instead looking forward with eager anticipation at all the great things they can be.
