Self-Evidence Challenge

When I read Dian's blog challenge my first thought was, "I have to participate!" My second thought, because those little gremlins in my mind like to be grumpy and mean, "who cares what you have to say." But then I reminded myself that sometimes it's enough to say something aloud in a public forum. Dian writes, "these thirteen topics can change the world. They can change the world, but not just if I write about them; only if we write about them." I believe there IS power in words, in writing, on both a personal and collective level.

I love the idea of pledging allegiance to these 13 ideas in a conscious way:

* Compassion
* Intention
* Self-Awareness
* Courage
* Love
* Fairness
* Laughter
* Optimism
* Truth
* Vision
* Wilderness
* Wisdom
* Authenticity

Dian's Challenge:

What would your life (or the next year or month or week or day or hour or minute) look like if you pledged yourself to one (or all) of the topics on that list? Maybe a look forward on your life and where you want it to be. Maybe how your life’s been affected by one or all. Challenge yourself to share a piece of you with all of us—and maybe even encourage others to do the same.

So, what about you? Are you up for the challenge?
