You’re a fighter.
You are surviving and thriving in this world despite all the ways it drags you down.
You’re a feeler.
You’re grieving what’s been lost. You’re loving all we’ve found.
You’re a builder.
You know long hours and late nights. You get your hands dirty doing the work.
You’re a dreamer.
You have a vision for a new world and a new way of being.
There is a tension in holding all these identities at once. The work of being a fighter/feeler/builder/dreamer is hard to escape. This moment in time requires presence with the world as it is, alongside visions for the world as it could be.
You might feel frantic. Like living in a perpetual state of emergency.
You might feel tired. Like the work will never end.
You might feel alone. Like you’re the only one who “gets it” the way you get it.
I know these experiences personally because I have the heart of a fighter/feeler/builder/dreamer, too.
As a coach and teacher, here are some of the things I can help you with:
Self-love that’s rooted in collective care
Productivity that won’t kill your soul
Running a business without conceding to capitalism
Unlearning internalized systems of oppression
Systemic liberation for us personally and culturally
