Sitting in the back of a sedan en route from LAX to Pasadena last year, with NPR sounding the background, I saw a billboard somewhere near the exit to the Forum.
“Dream to learn.
Dream to learn.
Learn to dream”.
At the same time, the then running story was about Magic Johnson and the tremendous impact he’s made on re-building Inglewood. The story described a certain movie theater to which Mr. Johnson makes frequent visits for the purpose of creating a safe-zone.
Located in what was described as a “gang-laden” neighborhood where violence is a much too often experienced reality, this particular theater is a safe-haven, even when Mr. Johnson is not there. He instilled an expectation that violence is not tolerated at this theater. And he did so such that kids and teens and adults could watch movies without the fear of violence.
If this one person can be this impactful, imagine what we could all do, if were all given the chance to learn to dream.
As a strong believer in optimism and a faithful practitioner thereof, I gobble up every little wisdom nugget that I find. And so, I’m starting my “Friday Fantasticals” which are my words and my perspective. Though not particularly profound, I write them with hopeful optimism that someone will like them too. Without further ado, this is my first installment for you.
It’s official! The onelifeonelimb shirts are in! Having been an idea swirling around this blonde head of mine for a really long time, I am so excited to see these shirts. And since tomorrow is a day of filming b roll of Pilates, Kettlebell, and TRX, their world-wide premier will forever be recorded in this little documentary film thingy that I’m doing (but more to come on that topic, later ;-)).
So, with me being a fan of promoting something wonderfully exciting, namely onelifeonelimb , I’m thrilled that the shirts promoting onelifeonelimb, are hitting this fan.
Be the good!
