Some may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one…

That line from John Lennon has been known to make me cry.

Because being a dreamer in this world can feel lonely and scary. We have big beautiful dreams but learning to live them out loud, helping them to bloom, and supporting ourselves in the process – that’s the work of heroes, and often we feel anything but.

 

1-Labyrinths of sand

I understand what it takes to move ideas from seed to fully rooted plant. I know the creative process inside out. In the words of one blog reader: “Lucy gets shit done!”

I know what it’s like to be highly sensitive and under-confident.  To struggle with depression and anxiety. I know completely. Please, please don’t let that stop you for a second. The way out is through. Through creativity we heal ourselves… and all those whose lives we touch. This I know as truth.

And it matters. Don’t for a second think it doesn’t. Or that you can put it off for another moment. Our world needs all the colour and innovation we can give right now. Our communities, global and local, are hungry for people of vision, projects of hope, people standing fully in their power not dominated by fear.

We need find the courage to harness our greatest visions and live them out. We need to embody our values. Dare to live authentically. Risk vulnerability. Face down shame, repression and taboo. Dreaming new dreams not only for ourselves but for the entire human race.

Each of our voices matters so much. Our collective energy is so desperately needed in these transition times.

Together we can create change.
