I have struggled a bit with people who stand back on the sidelines and judge rather than coming in to participate. I can't tell you why these people do this. I know how it feels on my side of the fence and it isn't pleasant.
There are several different themes of judgement.
One consists of "That girl is crazy," to which I am happy to reply, "If this is what crazy looks like, we need a whole lot more of crazy in this world."
Another is, "That girl thinks she is all that. She want's to 'save the world.'"
I have a hard time with this one, because truly I am doing my best not to make this project about me, but to hold space in the community for what is needed and what wants to emerge. Also, I really do not want accolades. I have no desire for my name in lights. I am happiest when I am playing with the kids on off calendar times and days. Nothing brings me more joy than to see someone else using the space for their own good works or individuals benefiting from what the Community House is offering.
So why am I doing this? I can say without any hesitation, that I want to do good in the world.
If you want to also do good, then come join the fun. I am sure there is something here where you can share your gifts too!
