Sometimes a good debate with yourself is healthy.
You can close your eyes, snap your fingers and/or click your heels. You STILL won't get to Kansas.
But if that makes you pause and take a time out, then by all means go for it! You may find yourself in a better place than Kansas (no offense Kansas).
You can say "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can" over and over and sometimes, well, you can't.
Better to be honest and know what you can do than to keep beating your head against a wall. Remember Einstein's definition of insanity.
It will rain on your parade.
So....are you worried the float will melt?
Sometimes the best laid plans are best laid aside.
That's ok, just don't become a hoarder. Recycle them, it's good for the soul and the earth.
Just because you "build it" doesn't mean they will come.
Did you remember to send the invitations? Sometimes you just can't sit and wait for opportunity to knock but open the door and yell "Hey you! Over here!"
Only in the old western movies can you tell the good guys from the bad buys by the color of their hats.
Maybe that's a good thing. We have to get to know people and not rely on first impressions.
