Today we are wrapping up week 4 of #Quest2016, Do Your Best Work, Not Someone Else’s.
Visionary: Jen Louden
What’s the story you most desire to bring to life in 2016?
What’s the story your just-right client most desires to bring to life in 2016?
Where do your two stories overlap? #2Stories
The story that I most desire to bring to life in 2016 is this:
I am powerful.
I have the power to make a difference–
in my life and in this world.
I am an agent of change.
I can change the trajectory of my story–
our story–through small daily actions,
repeated consistently over time.
I am a beacon of light and hope.
Through my work, my actions, my life–
I can remind others that a better world is possible
–possibly only a breath away.
I am stronger with others beside me.
Whatever I believe I can do on my own,
it can increase exponentially when collaborating
with others who share my passion.
I can speak my truth more loudly,
more clearly, with art and story
than with a picket sign, a megaphone, or by strapping my blast-ready body to a coal plant.
Silence is no longer an option.
The time has come to take a stand
for my own life, for the lives of those I love
for this Earth that feeds us, holds us, supports us.
And the story my just-right client desires to bring to life in 2016?
That they, too have the power…
- To create change
- To maintain hope, to shed light in the midst of great darkness
- To stand up and speak or draw or write or strum or drum their truth in whichever way or language they have available
- To work together for a better, more loving, more green and beautiful world
That we all do.
We share the same story, the same fears, the same hopes, and the same power–to own our strengths and weaknesses, to transform ourselves in service of transforming the world.
