do you ever feel trapped by your circumstance sometimes? i feel at times like i am in one of those dreams where you are trying to yell for help, and your mouth is open, but no sound is coming out.

i have all these great ideas that i am just dieing to get out and experiment with. i want to try something and fail, and i want to try something and succeed. i want that freedom to feel like i can use trial and error to learn. i have had some, what i think to be, brilliant ideas over the past year, and i have started seeing these same ideas emerge in other peoples work. how does that happen when i haven't even told anyone these ideas {doesn't seem fair}.

but life goes on and i am happy, and i remember that i need to just enjoy where i am in life, what i have right now, because one day it will be gone, and i will miss it!

I don't think I was in the same box as you are because I don't think I have that many good ideas but I have definitely been in a box and wondered how to get out?

You know the saying - 'There's nothing new under the sun'? - I think you are experiencing that reality. It is a bit disheartening to have an idea that is (certainly original to you when you have it because nobody introduced it to you) and then find out that in fact somebody else had it as well. The good thing is that usually means it was a great idea - especially when you see it published or manufactured ;)
Keep thinking and keep enjoying your space and good things will come, you'll see.
