I wanted to take a moment to share something personal and meaningful for me that came out of a private meeting I had today with my mentor, Marianne Williamson.
As you may know, Marianne is running for President of the United States and there are so many reasons this is so significant, but one aspect we spoke about deeply together today was that so many of us, myself very much included, would not be doing the work we do as Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs (HSEs) without the leadership of the likes of Marianne.
She has paved the way, passed the baton to us, and it is now time for her to lead from the next level.
What many don’t necessarily know is that Marianne has been teaching in the arena of politics for as long as I can remember (and I have been a student of hers since the first bootleg cassette tape I was given of one of her lectures when I was 16 years old in 1987!).
As we talked about today, running for President isn’t something she just “got up one day and decided to do”. She’s been led in this direction for the last 30 years which is demonstrated by the extensive humanitarian work she’s engaged in throughout her career.
However, as with any pioneer endeavors there’s ground to break and education that needs to happen, so I thought you might find it interesting to know that Marianne currently has the highest percentage of women who have donated over $200 while at the same time being able to create a much larger impact on one of the smallest grassroots budgets than any other candidate.
See, I know politics can often feel confusing, distancing and even shamefully discombobulating, but I also know that as Highly Sensitive Entrepreneurs one of our HSE Strengths is a “deep belief in justice”.
So, it’s good to remember that we are each faced in these turbulent times with an empowering opportunity to directly help a candidate who is a voice for the change you want to see in the world; a candidate who you feel in your heart is the best use of your donated dollar.
Which is why I wanted to take this moment to encourage you to decide who you most support and believe in, and then please get behind them with your time and money to help create a better world at this critical time in human history.
As HSEs we have such an important role to play in the healing of our planet and aligning ourselves politically is part of the contribution we are here to make.
Thank you for all the ways you choose to bravely show up to take action to support the candidates who are aligned with your worldview, vision and values.
P.S.If it’s helpful you can also go here to find out why so many are supporting Marianne Williamson for President in an Open Letter from Transformational Leaders.
