This idea came from a beloved of mine ... It was such a wonderful idea that together we make it bigger, which is the best kind of Inspiration and so it has to be here, on my Inspiration page. Wouldn't it be amazing, we mused, if as part of our schooling as kids, we had a class every day that was about emotional intelligence, emotions, being aware of them, how to have them, how to not push them down, break the gender divide, let boys HAVE emotions early in life, and not be condescending about girls who DO more naturally have them, teach girls to be proud of their emotional life, teach that it's okay experience anger, and rage, sadness, despair, shame, what to do with them ... Could you imagine what all could change? Everything. And for it to be in all schools, public and private ... The kind of baby foot work we take later in life to learn new and more healthy ways of being and expressing, we could shape our communal footwork into satisfying, whole-hearted living if it were more out there when we are all little, and not just tucked into the sidelines of life ... This the world according to My Heart. Still, I am super grateful to where my feet have been, and where I am, spiritually speaking.
