This week, it’s too easy to give up and getting easier to keep going.
I never used to feel good about the un-subscriptions when I took everything personally, but the ground shifted beneath my feet last week when I admitted my raw and unvarnished truth and I am actually grateful for the record number of notifications. The messages left me feeling lighter, confirming my decision to let go of trying to be all to all and traveling towards being more me and attracting all of ours.
The few precious messages of respect and love and encouragement quickly drown out any lingering disappointment.
The way forward will continue with organic growth as our guiding light and a little more emphasis on life balance as we create a new field of dreams — a place where we can all share our ups and downs and tips and tricks and celebrate our achievements while acknowledging our common anxieties and fears and and holding each other in our overwhelming grief for what we have already lost and learn from life’s tough lessons and all trauma ready for healing.
Our future lies in capturing the demand of everyone ready to give up being addicted consumers and build a digital space for conscious customers where free exchange is the foundation and the knowledge we gain is as positive and powerful as the kindness, compassion and love we give.
And this quick reply from a member in Glasgow preparing for COP26 who has just been nominated for Australian of the Year, is clearly a sign that it the time has come for heartbeat to expand.
