2017 is set to be the year of 1000 experiences.
The math is done, it’s possible.
But in Kudoz a number only has value if the quality and purpose are there. Really, 2017 is the year of 1000 opportunities for impact, intention, rigor, purpose, and fun (but that’s not as catchy).
I can’t believe what we’ve accomplished in the past 12 months, how lucky we are to have the community we do.
Each night I fall asleep thinking of how brilliant and intuitive the Hosts are. I wake up thinking about the Kudoers and how they fearlessly try new things. There’s so much support given to their learning, watching families and friends rally for it, and stop to reflect in between.
Every single time a Kudoer leaves for an experience there is a collective breath. From the Host, hoping they’re ready in all the right ways. From the Kudoer’s Circle, who want the most for the Kudoer but each time have to challenge any doubts they ever had. From our team, hoping everything rolls smoothly and the buses get there on time! And from the Kudoers themselves, who are about to do something they’ve maybe never considered before.
But Kudoz sits best in the bottom of our lungs right after we take all the air in. We hold onto it before we send it out. That breath we all take is leading to a movement, I’ve seen it. Small breath in and out, small step, small step, big leap, big leap, over and over.
The movement values people more than the labels that stick to them. It also believes that we can learn from each other. Reciprocity has been my biggest take-away from 2016. Regardless of the role you have in Kudoz, this past year has been about noticing your strengths and seeing where you find place in this movement. I’m proud to have you on our team and excited for 2017, a year full of 1000 opportunities for impact, intention, rigor, purpose, fun, followed by one collective breath (but we’ll just call them experiences).
