Bad Idea

Have you ever watched a bad idea in progress? I have...
Just like with most ideas the person thinks about putting it into action everyday. 
And than one of those days they decide to go with their first instinct
They ignore all their feelings of being afraid.
They ignore their fear of the outcome and they just do.
Take a deep breath, dive in. 
Usually in the movies thats when something explodes and madness ensues. 
I have a couple of bad ideas up in my own head... 
some that I think about all the time. 
The kinds that would be epic in the moment but no one thinks of tommorrow...
 no one thinks of the aftermath of a bad idea, a bad plan.
All they do think about is how amazing it would feel to act on it...

    Sometimes our own awareness sends out warnings but we go against them just to admit to ourselves in the end it was a bad idea.. Awesome write to get your message across.. Wilma
