aspiration, desperation, perspiration and inspiration.

Stand often in the company of dreamers…
they tickle your common sense
and believe you can achieve
that which is impossible.

Would you dream with me for a few moments?
Many of you know that a few years ago I covered my car in smiley faces and the phrases “Kindness Ripples,” “Peace Ripples,” and “Happiness Ripples.” Since then I have been pondering what it would be like to drive around the country to hang out with fellow ripplers and see if we could create some powerful waves of inspiration. I think in light of the many challenges that we are currently facing, the time has come to make this dream a reality. As a bonus, it would be a magnificently fun way to say THANKS to many of you for ten years of nurturing The Ripples Project!
This could be as simple as showing up in your city and breaking break at a restaurant with whoever shows up, or it could be as elaborate as planning inspirational presentations and trying to gather a few dozen or a few hundred people together who need a big splash of inspiration.
In order to encourage a “group conversation,” I have posted discussion topics on our Facebook & LinkedIn groups (see links below) and I need to hear from you! How could we make this happen? Where should I go? Can you help? If you are not yet a part of one of these online communities, this could be the perfect reason to join one because you’ll instantly have access to many connections with the RIPPLES groups there!
Are you in?
