Discovering a way to contribute

For folks who know me, even just a teensy bit, you know that I’m a glass-half-full kind of gal.

These are trying times that we’re living in. It’s easy to feel discouraged, overwhelmed, and more. I find that I am relying on my passion and deep-seated belief and practice of Appreciative Inquiry to support me day-to-day. I’m looking at the world with eyes wide open—seeing both the positive and the challenging, then choosing to focus my attention on where I can amplify the good, what’s working, inspires, and uplifts me. 

Shortly after the invasion of Ukraine, I wondered what I could do, as one person. Of course, I could donate money to a cause but I wanted to have more of an impact, to do something bigger. I was struck one day with the idea of creating a fundraiser in which I would donate my time and teach Zentangle, a meditative art form that brings people inner peace, calm, and focus. I spent this past Sunday creating a campaign, Tangling for Healing in Our Worlds. You can find it here. I hope you’ll join me in my goal to raise funds for the people of Ukraine through joining one of the Zentangle Inspired Art sessions or choosing one of the other goodies I have created. If you’re new to Zentangle Inspired Art, look here to learn more,

If Appreciative Inquiry is new to you, I hope you’ll join my session next Friday, March 25 for Drawify. I’ll be sharing the five core principles that will enable you to see the world and your place it in a different way. The impact of this work is truly amazing! You can register here for this free event! (And if you are new to Drawify, check it out here. Here’s a coupon for you to play for two months at the Hero level—free, no strings attached! Let me know what you think—let’s chat!

I also host Appreciative Living Learning Circles and have one beginning in April. Learn more about the circle here and reach out to me with any questions you may have.
