It is almost the New Year, and I cannot even describe how excited I am imagining what will come next. I realized I need to have help. Volunteers are great, but they are also rather unreliable. It is necessary to pay people.
Yesterday we did a preparation for our New Year's event and walked through the first course offering Strengthening the Core. The short practice exercises were extremely powerful! I discovered a few threads lingering in my formerly robe of self-doubt, fear and self-sabotage. The beautiful design of the course is that the final focus is stepping out of those old patterns. I was able to ask myself what would I do if I knew I couldn't be wrong? One thing was to spend money, and be generous.
The fear of money, or lack of it, is a terrible hinderance to stepping out into our dreams. I have put money aside to start-up this project, though, and I believe it is about time I dipped into the til and let it flow.
I have decided to hire an Assistant Director of the Community House, and a Director of Youth Programming. I feel so much better just saying it. What a relief to have a team of people who share my vision and who have the time and willingness to commit to the project.
