Like many of you, we have had a lot of time to reflect over the last few months of “stay in place”. It has given Megan and myself time to realign with what is important. Time is of the essence to be a thinking leader and community member.
This summer, someone asked me, "Don't we just need to learn to live with the hustle and bustle?" The panic in their voice and jerky body motions told me that they were caught up in this worry cycle that Covid-19 has created, and I sensed that they wanted me to share in the worry.
We are worried over here, but this is a time for decisive action, not stagnation. Working hard is part of our team’s core nature. Succumbing to the numbness of fear will add to our hurting economy; let’s instead help it, team up, create jobs, and make an impact together.
Bring Back The Blue is an economic driver, Megan and I designed it to be that way very intentionally. Both of us, as single Mom’s in a faltering economy, have had to make many sacrifices for our small children to live their best lives - and we did so happily, family is everything.
We know that many families and single parents are out there, pretending to be ok. This tribe, The Blue Tribe, is where you can be yourself and share what’s going on for you, in your community, and in your region regarding material resources and waste. We will listen; we will help you take action.
Megan and I know the Ocean is our True North. Megan worked in International Development for many years. One day in 2000, Megan saw a white paper pinned to the door of every office at the World Bank, the title was “The Next World War Will Not Be Over Oil, It Will Be Over Water.” Potable/drinking water is different from ocean water, we get it. But this precious resource in all of its forms is a major economic driver. And we want you to have access to it.
For myself, when I am aligned with the ocean, success and greatness has always been there with open arms.
It's time to embrace greatness. To follow that Blue North into the future. We have the power to create our own path, to choose the destiny of our species and to choose our own adventure book. Let's choose a healthy path that serves many! A clean path. A path where people can eat, have shelter, and provide for their families needs.
Megan and I have spent the last decade preparing for this opportunity. Our journeys, for those who know us, have been singularly unique and have given us a toolset that only exists between us, our commitment to the Blue, and commitment to each other. Now we are extending that commitment to you.
So here I am, here you are, here is the Blue Tribe we have created in Bring Back The Blue.
Society and the planet needs our messages, our solutions, our energy more than ever before.
I look forward to the relationship and commitment that we will make together as the Bring Back The Blue Tribe!
