So here we are in 2020, the stuff of science fiction fantasy when I was a child! And yet, 2020 is here and the world is in some disarray. We can step into fear in response to that disarray, or, we can step into connection, and from there to community. So, an invitation – to step back and, using your 2020 vision, visualise YOUR gift, the one that only you can bring to the world, the one that would not exist if you were not here. The gift that others may point out to you. Or perhaps the one that you know about and have been too afraid to bring to life. It IS risky birthing new projects, showing parts of ourselves to the world they may not have seen before. Our projects may be rejected and we may get hurt. The real question is “does not bringing your gift to the world not cause you pain?” It is after all only a risk. You may have taken risks before and survived, perhaps even thrived! And, in my experience the pain of not bringing my visions to fruition is greater than the pain of bringing them and having them rejected. And they are usually not rejected!
Bringing more of who we are to the world is one way of really connecting to others. And from there its a small step to community!
