Our solution is not to blame.
It’s not the assumption that problems will fix themselves either. Instead we must have absolute faith in a deeper rooted rock that is holding our mangled up, messy mankind in place.
We must believe in the tie that binds good. We must believe in creativity, in the expression and celebration of ideas we’ve never thought hard about before, and in community built by people like you, unlike you, kind of like you, and completely polar to you. We must believe in the power of diversity of interests, that intelligence cannot be defined by one type of mind, and global movements are built by the humble ones.
Who’s to say tomorrow cannot bring forward an opportunity that yesterday had never thought feasible? We are not in control, but.. we can have faith.
We can use what we have to explode in the vertical and horizontal lines of influence we current absorb and then reach for larger spheres.
We can continue to run and we can rest when we need.
We are powerful by ourselves and with each other.
We are complex species created for higher purposes - and we ARE progressing.
Hold me back before I spend the rest of my life researching @traceeellisross, Jaron Lanier, and Steven Pinker, drinking more @lacolombecoffee than water, and attending every TED event that ever happens, ever. TEDFest - you're teaching me the world. (literally)
HEYO. I'm Chlo.
So the basic gist is I’m really just tired of comparing myself to perfect people on the Internet, when I know for a fact that "perfect" doesn't exist. This here is a snippet of my inner thoughts and tidbits of experience, based on my twenty-something years of good ole fashioned, really really messy life.
My wish is for this blog to serve the small voices inside all of us that might have forgotten what being honest online can look like. Leave the hustle behind you, because this here is about HEART.
