Rediscovery 28: Sharing

“It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.”
Erma Bombeck

More often than not, sharing has played a crucial role in what I do. Be it sharing dreams, thoughts, impressions, knowledge… silence… space… experience, it has resulted in new ideas, inspiration, comfort, courage, the need to start something new or rediscover a familiar terrain.

Sharing turned into a trendy activity since the rise of social media. This is not necessarily bad, but it’s a pity to associate it simply with posting on social media platforms, don’t you think? Particularly because not seldom posting out there in what we call social media landscape has little to do with genuine sharing.

It takes courage, effort, and consideration to share genuinely. It requires a certain level of openness, vulnerability, and the interest in what others think, feel, believe, imagine. No wonder that it’s not that easy and sometimes we are reluctant or unable to do it. But today… today, by sharing my thoughts about it, I dare to challenge you to rediscover genuine sharing – no matter if it’s on social media, in an in-person conversation or in writing. I am going to continue sharing in a minute, this time in a candid message to someone I care about. And you?
