Talk about the future you want to see

Life, like a conversation, gets better when you put your heart into it.

Hopeful conversations

Creating hopeful conversations may be easier said than done. Maybe you feel what you have to say is not all that important? Perhaps you are afraid you will be judged? You think no one will listen. Or maybe you feel like if you start talking, you might ramble? Chances are, if a topic interests you, it likely interests people around you too. Ramble away. If it resonates, it’s relevant. It might be exactly what someone else needs to hear, and you might receive a response that surprises you.

Conversations have the power to create a shared reality

Conversations are a vital expression of the human spirit. Humans have a long track record of being creators, community builders, dreamers, and explorers. Talking helps us push the limits of human experience to create meaning and a sense of belonging. Words are a way to find our direction and build a legacy and future. Conversations help us understand our world, create a shared reality, and make the most of it.
