A fellow Dominant I respect came up with an idea, and I thought I would join in. His words are better than anything I could write, so here they are:
Ok I ‘m pitching this one out to everyone that considers themselves a part of the Community. I’ve been looking at various posts, blogs and opinions and most of it is at the core complaining. Now venting can be theraputic but in the end sometimes a situation calls for actions.
Now I am not talking about anything grand actions on anyone’s part but what if each one of us did something, just something that uplifts or empowers the community. It can be attending a munch, actually being there to listen to someone, give someone pure advice, support a dungeon, reach out to one new person, let go of a grudge, anything pure of heart. Don’t do it to be seen, just do it because there was a need for it to be done. Do something and not take credit for it. Do something nice anonymously for someone. Just invest some pure goodwill.
I’m calling this Operation: Do Something, and if you believe in what I’m saying please use the graphic above and spread the word.
This community needs you, time to make it yours.
Ok, now you know what to do. Do it.
One thought on “Operation: Do Something”
I have the following poster on my wall (2.5′ x 3′ – it’s big):
How to be an Artist:
Stay loose. learn to watch snails. plant impossible gardens. invite someone dangerous to tea. make little signs that say Yes! and post them all over your house. Make friends with freedom & uncertainty. look forward to dreams. cry during movies. swing as high as you can on a swingset, by moonlight. cultivate moods. refuse to ‘be responsible’. do it for love. take lots of naps. give money away. do it now. the money will follow. believe in magic. laugh a lot. celebrate every gorgeous moment. take moonbaths. have wild imaginings, transformative dreams, and perfect calm. draw on the walls. read every day. imagine yourself magic. giggle with children. listen to old people. open up. dive in. be free. bless yourself. drive away fear. play with everything. you are innocent. build a fort with blankets. get wet. hug trees.
write love letters.
I’ve done almost everything on this poster (some several times) 😀 It works and I prefer to think of the title as ‘how to be a human BEING’ and I try to add ‘perform random acts of kindness’ to the list 🙂
