Danielle LaPorte’s Burning Question for this week is “What do you want to revolutionize?” Me? Revolutionize something? With one small voice and one small light?
Danielle says that her heart has a list of things for OTHER people to revolutionize, so she called herself to dig even deeper for answers. So I dug deeper too. Oddly enough, my answers don’t surprise me. But they do call me. They ask me to be more than I can be.
I want to revolutionize the way people are cared for in our society. I want to see more CARING. We so often focus on the day to day tasks that have to be done–paperwork, making sure everything is clean and shiny–that the reason we’re doing everything we’re doing gets completely lost. We forget there are souls behind the numbers and hearts behind the chores. We forget that the people we serve and support have spirits. We lose our own spirits in the process.
I also want to revolutionize how professional people helpers and world changers are viewed. We need to see these people, no matter what kind of “work” they do, as people following a calling, not doing a job. And they need to see themselves that way too. It’s a small shift, but a radical revolution.
May this come to pass one day. May we all choose revolution of some kind. My voice and light are not too small when combined with those of others.
Welcome to my Blogelina friends. If you care to follow me into the next post, I continue the revolution.
