We feel Safe to Express our Whole Selves

By | September 2nd, 2016|Blog Challenge, Emotional Intelligence, Future, Leadership, Self-Awareness|

ReWrite the World Blog Challenge Day 14 I imagine a world in which we feel safe to express our whole selves. So that... Emotions are ok to express, valued, learned from and moved through rapidly. Our silly side is welcomed and seen as appropriate in more circumstances. Creativity is unleashed in every aspect of life. Our current work culture is about bringing our professional selves to work at the expense of the rest of ourselves. This means our creativity, fun, and emotions are often put aside in favour of technical expertise. When we go outside the narrow band of acceptable expression our sanity is questioned. If we’re too happy we must be on drugs. [...]

Currently, our society regards vulnerability as a weakness. This makes asking for help, posing new ideas, and creative expression seem difficult and scary things to do. This prevents [...]

We Trust Ourselves

By | August 24th, 2016|Blog Challenge, Future, Self-Awareness|

ReWriting the World Blog Challenge Day 5 I imagine a world in which we trust ourselves. So that... We stop looking outside ourselves for answers and start relying on our selves because we have a deep connection to our sense of self. We can look in the mirror and experience a strong foundation of confidence and self-awareness. We feel grounded in our relationship with ourselves such that we have strong relationships with others in our families and communities. Today, we are forever second guessing our own intelligence, our own wisdom, looking to others, role models, the media, pop culture for [...]
