Dwelling in Possibility: Action Requested

I write a lot of posts about dreaming big and making it happen for a few different reasons:
  1. I love Mary Oliver's question: "What will you do with your one wild and precious life?" Life is too short to dread getting out of bed in the morning or to spend all your time complaining about all the things that are going wrong. Each day affords us the opportunity to uncover and move closer toward our most authentic selves. I hope that by sustaining a dialogue about dreaming, planning, and then doing I can help at least one other person make their dreams happen. 
  2. Writing about my goals and my processes in a public forum holds me more accountable. If I talk about doing stuff in a very public space, then I'm more likely to actually do it. 
  3. Sharing my dreams and action steps (and insecurities!) in this space helps me cultivate a community of support. I can turn to you for guidance, wisdom, commiseration--the list goes on! 
It is in that spirit that I turn to you now, my Community of Support. Our book is making its debut on Amazon, and I would be beyond the moon if you could support the nonprofit organization I'm starting (Montessori For All) by purchasing a copy. Kylie (co-author), Angie (designer), and I (co-author) volunteered countless hours, days, weeks, and months to this project. We wanted all of the proceeds from the book's sale to go directly to Montessori For All.

Even if you don't have young children (yet or ever), this book would make a great gift for birthdays, Christmas, Hanukkah, etc. Think about how far ahead you'll be if you start ordering presents now!

With just a few clicks, you can help education in our country focus more holistically on our children's minds, hearts, and bodies--rather than just their ability to bubble in answers on reading and math tests. 

Thank you--in advance--for your support and your belief in possibility. 

And check back all day long for related posts!

I just bought my copy! And I'll definitely be thinking of this for friends who are parents. Can't wait to read it!
