If you only have one new thought a day your doing well. 99 percent of our thoughts are recycled. the trick though is that something has to grow out of that 99 percent you can let it be and come what may. or you can focus on the 99 percent and pull out something fresh, new, and most importantly good for everyone. That is my thought.
