fightIn life, any time we build a selfless structure that aims to touch the lives of those less fortunate, two things will happen. First, you will get resistance. Second, you’ll be more inspired each day. People will call you a liar, they’ll say that your mission won’t be effective, they’ll question your beliefs, misunderstand your intentions, refuse to help…all kinds of things will begin to surround you. For me, the most interesting thing has been to notice that my passions are not necessarily everyone’s passions. I experience so much desperation, disappointment and fear sending my emails, asking people for help, exposing my philosophy and personal life for this cause “Letters Healing Poverty.” As I would fall asleep at night or wake up in the mornings, I would be consumed with the next person I could email, the next place I could promote my message. As I worked, ate, slept I would imagine all the people whose faces I googled online that are considered impoverished. The next day, I would get an email considering my message “spam”, then I would imagine what it would be like in that day when my letters mail. I would think of how that would feel. I noticed then that the finances I needed to make this project come to fruition, were already in my bank account. Obviously, I’m not sure how to manage this project all year, but I know I’m going to do it. I don’t have a choice. This mission is an obsession with justice and possibility. I don’t believe that I could live with myself knowing that I had this deep desire to touch peoples lives and help them understand things like self-love, compassion, inspiration. This project has become very public. Within the next week, it is likely that it will reach millions of people. I Will then receive more resistance to the message, because that is life. But the amount of hope and power that springs forth from the end-goal surpasses any of that. I had to opt out of my fear to make this work. I literally checked out. I don’t know what I’m doing on some days, but somehow always end up doing the right thing.
