In my recent teleseminar(Click here to listen...), those who were on the call and I talked about the situation with the economy. My theme for the call was "Don't let the economy push you around."
I frequently hear the economy cited as the reason not to do something lately. As in, 'I would start that project, but the economy is such a mess..."
I have been delighted to see people who have been taking the road less traveled by on this issue. This weekend, I attended a benefit party and silent auction for the Mutineer Theatre Company. That's right, they are starting a theater company right now. And people showed up and bid on silent auction items -including a session from Remabulous-, watched live music, and had a great time.
We need these dreams to watch now. I have been hearing about this theater dream for over a year now and it was such a delight to watch it unfold and get the support it deserves. And there wasn't a word spoken about the economy during the party that I could hear. Other inspiring things I have heard about: people ready to jump into writing screenplays, novels, spending all day Saturday acting, and spending this past Sunday afternoon knitting with my awesome monthly group.
Now don't get me wrong, there are realistic measures that need to be taken now when times are tight, but in making those steps we can't lose sight of other things in life that really do matter. Here are my thoughts on how to strike that balance:
