« The Optimist Challenge | Main | TEDxEmbarcadero: The Tale Behind the Talk »

Just catching up on my dare to dream this Sunday morning. Feeling guilty that I am not instead reading my scriptures and getting ready for church. This talk, though, set off so many emotions in me. I often believe that God shows up in my work. There are moments of brilliance not of myself. Being creative, even like being engaged in service, can bring us closer to God and our humanity. Another reason to be anxiously engaged in creating beautiful things.

I didn't know about these TED talks. Thanks for sharing these.

I love this! And I love that it's the follow-up to The Optimism Challenge. Isn't that the key to the whole thing? To show up and to be grateful for the times that we get to glimpse a sliver of divinity in our lives? Feeling that happen once is enough to complete you, yet it simultaneously spurs you on to greater efforts in the hope of having that opportunity again.

What an amazing concept, to put our ego out of the game...

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
