“My anthem is the feisty joy parade that goes from my heart to yours.”—Chelan Harkin
So in this video (that I’m going to try to add to the bottom of this post), Mike Dooley asked for my elevator speech.
I said something like, Gosh, “I guess I should write one” even though I know full well nobody can be contained within a label, a description or even an elevator speech.
But since he asked, I looked up the definition and discovered a good elevator speech explains what I’m up to, what project I’m working on, what comes next for me.
And even though my cultural programming instructs me to articulate something that sounds impressive and/or fulfilling, I concluded–upon a bit of inner reflection–that my only mission is to BE love. Right here. Right now.
I know. I know. It sounds flimsy and woo-woo and shouldn’t I have more goals?
But upon even more inner reflection, I concluded that “well, what else could I possibly want? What else beyond love would I ever want to experience or would I ever want anyone else to experience?”
So screw it! That’s my elevator speech. My mission is to overcome all limiting beliefs that would block this indwelling source of love. And to know that love is not something you find in people, places or things. It’s a life energy that dwells within, a powerful force that yearns to make its presence known.
All of us are inherently happy and worthy of love and acceptance. So my elevator pitch, if I ever get asked again, is: I, Pam Grout, am a love activist. #222 Forever.
Have the most extraordinarily epic weekend of your life, my beautiful compatriots of joy. #222 Forever!
