You may have noticed that I’m really engaged with world events lately. You may have also noticed that I don’t tend get burned out on them. Part of that is all the years of non-profit and activist work I’ve done, so I’ve had training on how to not get tripped up by the state of affairs and fall on my face every two seconds (mostly learned by…falling on my face). But part of it, also, is that I try to engage with the craziness of the world as an opportunity to think and create.
Something I notice is that so much resistance is going on, but there’s not a lot of attention to the fact that we could actually win and accomplish a whole new world. We can! But…what will it look like? Here’s a quick exercise to supplement your activism with vision.
I hope this is helpful. Please feel free to leaves comments below on whatever else you think people can do to better effect positive change!
