Sometimes it just takes a lollipop… and some faith in yourself.
My husband’s class was studying the Congo last week. It’s a dense and heavy subject with few glimmers of hope. The students got a little overwhelmed and the discussion turned to “how to save the world”- another overwhelming topic.
He brought up this video from TedX Toronto in 2010 and shared it with them for a little inspiration:
He shared it with me in the (successful) hope of shifting my perspective on my own effectiveness in my work at home and at church.
Leadership, changing the world, and saying the good things that come to my mind- without second-guessing how they might be received- just got a lot easier.
I think I’ll find a way to send Drew a thank you.
