...and it’s probably not why you think.
There are plenty of things on this planet that might provoke fear or leave one incapacitated by terror.
But those are not the things that terrify me
It’s far more subtle and personal than that. You won’t see me wear it on the outside. But it’s there when I hit a button and then wait.
It’s not the terror that accompanies a deep wanting to be liked or crippling fear of rejection.
Trust me. I’m human. I know that fear well. But this fear is different. It feels far more justified somehow.
This terror I feel right now is that I won’t figure out how to play the game ‘right’ in order to win.
What is “winning” you might ask?
Winning for me is somehow magically, perhaps miraculously is the better word, finding my way through the dense fog and mind numbing monotony of the thousands of social media posts people scroll through each day.
Winning is discerning that exact right combination of words, tone, and energy that will inspire and motivate a scroller to pause, ponder, and prioritize something that feels so important to me I’d sacrifice my life for it.
Winning looks like a woman looking up from the swirl of her crazy busy life and, in the midst of it all, seeing a light bulb go on.
Winning looks like this woman realizing for herself that she might just be sitting on a goldmine of opportunity to be a catalyst for climate action if she only knew how.
Winning looks like this woman doing something profoundly crazy in the midst of that crazy busy life and opting to surrender 12 precious Saturday mornings to devote her attention to something most would rather turn away from.
Winning looks like this woman saying "YES!" I want to become a catalyst for climate action and I’m ready to learn how. Now!
I don’t know how to fix all the woes on the planet.
I do know how to do hard things and how to help others do hard things too...sometimes seemingly impossible things given the obstacles that might appear to stand in one's way.
I also know how to make doing hard things feel purposeful and fun!
I’d LOVE to mince words here but I can’t.
YOU are the change you’ve been waiting for when it comes to creating a better world for generations to come.
We’ve got kids on the streets marching for a better future. We’ve got parents fleeing homes, countries, and livelihoods in search of edible food, clean water, and non-toxic air for their children to breathe.
Not to sound cliché but there really is no planet B. Nor is there any better person in your life to take the kind of action that will relieve your climate anxiety BUT YOU!
We are living in a time when we’ve all gotta sacrifice something. To sacrifice means to surrender something of value to gain something of even greater value.
I can't think of anything more valuable than a viable planet. Can you?
If you are still with me, I have an invitation for you. Please read it all the way through.
I invite YOU to sacrifice 12 Saturday mornings for our planet and for the people who will inhabit it for generations to come.
I invite you to make a powerful and deeply personal plan for a thriving planet that has you thriving at the heart of it.
I invite you to land fully into your WHY and to all the ways you are already uniquely prepared to mobilize climate action.
This isn’t about you taking on more.
This is about you being willing to turn IN to your climate anxiety vs. away from it and learning how to harness that energy and transform it for good.
This is about you getting real with yourself about just how much eco-anxiety is stealing vital life force from you every single moment you choose not to acknowledge it.
This is about you learning to have powerful conversations about the things that matter most TO YOU!
This is about you learning to lead with your WHY on climate and mobilizing your personal spheres of influence.
If you think we’ve got a whole lotta time to spare, then my course is probably not for you.
But if you find yourself sitting on the sidelines of the climate action movement eager to jump in and find your own stride in the midst of an already busy and full life, then my 12 Week Climate Action Intensive, Survive to THRIVE on a Planet in Crisis is just for you!
The intensive begins Saturday 1/29. Registration closes 1/25. Schedule a Discovery Call with me today!
