Feeling beaten down by a stressful week, I am reminded of the reasons I do these things.
"You don't do them for money or fame or because it's easy. You do these things because that's the world you want to live in." - Jean Poulet
I want to live in a world where people think outside the box to solve problems beyond the standard procedure. I want to live in a world where someone can have rockstar hair in traditional business environment. I want to live in a world where granddaughters send their grandmothers flowers - every month. I want to live in a world where people make amazing experiences for other people. I want to live in a world that evolves down a pathway that increases possibilities. I want to live in a world where people are aware of the ripple of their influence on others and themselves. I want a world aware.
I create this world I want to live in - bittersweetly, even if I rarely get to experience it.
Creating the world you want to live in is a hard task. The status quo beats and attacks and shuts you down. Sometimes breaks you. But there is always another day, another attempt to create this world anew.
Giving other people (who are mere reflections of myself) the experiences I desperately crave.
