Someone recently said to me “sometimes you are in the forest and you can’t see the trees.”
There is a lot happening “out there.” And every so often I get a glimmer of this when I find an intriguing website, or I attend an event or meet women who are congregating to put their positive energy toward something powerful.
But I have yet to start my own movement–due to what I think might be roadblocks. I love cooking and serving people, and I know a lot of people who love this too.
I also know a lot of very nice people who happen to work in industries where people and relationships are valued. These are people who like helping people. And I’m not just talking about social media. I think people in every industry would like to feel like they are helping people. It makes the world a better place, and it makes us feel good. I don’t feel that enough people today feel that way–feel good about themselves. But we still sit starting at our computers, our televisions, shopping at the mall, to waste time–many of us don’t like to be without distractions so we….find them.
We should probably all be a lot busier than we are considering the problems occurring in the world today.
A lot of young people abroad need help. Check out this video from Girl Up.
Here is another video I’ve recently watched and been contemplating.
I don’t have an answer–but I do want to tell you my dear readers that I am thinking, and strategy-zing, and scheming, on what I can do to get this thing started. I am not sure exactly how it will work yet–but when I do it will be big.
