I haven’t celebrated it yet.
Yep…my work getting national recognition….not that i am named explicitly, but my work is.
What does that mean to me?
Who did get named is a leading university and a start-up, by name. Why not me?
I lead from the rear. I still do it.
this past week, the leading university asked me to step in front and lead from the front.
get it done.
more of what i do.
just do it as i know i can.
so we are.
i am. lol
i have already.
i will continue to do so.
i am going to step it up and do this! 2 months ago
I understand how this feeds back to everything.
I respect myself
I gain the respect of others
I grow in my work and life
Because I respect myself…and establish very healthy boundaries around me and what I will and won’t tolerate in my life.
So, the BIG things in life are coming to me.
The BIG things you know can change everything.
Can you imagine how long it has taken me to get here?
Lessons from my daughter in some ways.
Her healthier outlook. I am getting there. I didn’t have the same parent that she did… to tell her that she could have anything she wants in her life.
that she could be anything she wants, if she works for it.
that she is perfect in her imperfection.
that we are all perfect that way.
I strive for that imperfection everyday.
I always reach it.
It is always perfect.

changing the world?
making a difference?
how large or small a difference?
how to leverage my knowledge and experience to do this?
i am in my work. i know i could be having a much larger impact if i focused on this. my bot idea. my book, ebook, website for daughter.
how do you solve climate change? i met a man who knows. the challenge is getting everyone on board and participating in these steps. (the natural step principles if you are wondering.)
i have been involved in creating change and movement. i believe in the big movements we all must make. i have lost my momentum for the really BIG things – while i solve isolated issues for my community – and they can be scaled nationally – and perhaps globally.
but for now – i have back burnered the dream BIG on social change.
not because i don’t believe it won’t happen, but because i believe it will come through social media and crowd sourcing. we will get there. our lives depend on it.
and in survival, we change and move.
it is evolution after all that keeps us here. 5 months ago
i must get this back.
i used to dream big.
i am living big
i could be living bigger…have a larger footprint on impact.
how can i change the world in a much better way?
how can my work affect the lives of many for a greater, easier pathway?
how can I get what i want while lifting all boats?
what is in my heart in the big dream?
what is the biggest dream I could imagine? for me? my friends? family? country? world? 5 months ago
what would that look like? 6 months ago
A group of people who run one of the organisations I’m affiliated with were discussing what we would do in a perfect world considering a particular issue that had been plaguing us. I suggested we put our big suggestions on paper and start to accomplish as many as we can. We did that and so far some of the ideas are starting to bear fruit.
I realised that dreaming big is something I do for other people and definitely at work but never for myself. At both my jobs I have seen how many of my ideas have been implemented and produced meaningful change, even the ones that others had thought to be stupid or impractical.
Now I’ll have to go out and dream big for myself. I am worth the effort and I’m sure the big dreams for myself will pay off the way my big dreams for work seem to. 19 months ago
