I have two big goals when it comes to helping other people:
1.) I want to help them let go of things that hold them back.
2.) I want to help them take more chances to create the lives they want.
To that end, I have started two public participation projects. The sole purpose of these projects is to celebrate participants and to have their stories inspire others.
Here’s how it works:
Let. It. Go.
Let something go – it can be anything from a possession that is a painful reminder of something to an emotion like anger, greed, jealousy, disappointment – and then tell me about it at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can let go of something very big, like an old, hurtful disappointment, or something very small, like forgiving the person who cut in line at the grocery store. This can be about something you just let go of or about something you let go of a long time ago.
Take a Chance
Take a Chance – it can be anything from saying hi to someone new to applying for a new job to changing anything about your life that you want to change – and then tell me about it at email@example.com. You can take a big chance, like starting your own business, or something very small, like having a healthy snack instead of an unhealthy one.
You can participate in either project (or both!) and email me as often as you’d like. Actually, I’d love it if you emailed me every single day with something you let go and a chance you took. The emails can be very short or they can include a story of any length. They can include photos, too. (I know this goes without saying – please keep all contributions clean.) I will respond to every email I receive. Your chances and things you let go will always be kept completely anonymous unless you specifically tell me that you want me to include your name or initials. I’ll use these contributions to populate a new online project I’m launching in the coming months. You’ll be notified as soon as the online site launches and when your contribution is live.
I hope you’ll join in these exciting new endeavors to celebrate and encourage you and your dreams.
