When A Flash of Brilliance Comes, Let it Shine!

It’s amazing what you find when you are looking for something else!

I found these notebooks today. For each one, I gave its own title to match the contents. This one made me smile. “Flashes of Brilliance” is a phrase coined by my dear sister friend, Lorraine back in our hey-days as The BlogRollers. That’s what she called my creative ideas that would seem to hit me like a lightning bolt and I would have a visible physical reaction. She’d look at me and say “Uh oh… you just got a flash of brilliance, didn’t you!” Or when we would brainstorm, she’d say “We could use one of your flashes of brilliance right now!” 

I remember when I got this set of notebooks and decided to dedicate one to be ready to capture flashes when they happened. I remember the day I started writing in it… October 2010, seated next to Lorraine on our flight to Miami for the Blogalicious conference.

So many awesome concepts fill these pages. Some we actually did. Some we pitched but never knocked out of the park. Some never left these pages because they were just too ahead of their time.

I truly believe I was meant to find this book today. I needed to be reminded of the fiery creative spirit that still resides within me, to never stop dreaming, and to trust my crazy ideas. When the flash of brilliance comes, I need to let it shine!
