Justine Willis Toms shares principles that lead to a more useful and fulfilling life. She asks the question: is worry fruitful and will it lead to an effective outcome? She also encourages us to create circles of friends who support us in our fullness. She shares the lessons of the caterpillar and the butterfly as she exhorts us to get out into the corridors of life and contribute our gifts. As we do so, we become part of a collective of imaginal cells for a better world for all. She says, “If we get out and circulate, if we stay curious about the future, if we tap into hope about the future, but not attach ourselves to how it’s going to look, then we’ll find synchronicities coming to our lives. We will start to see things out of the corner of our eye, people will show up, and a momentum of creativity will begin to build.” (hosted Molly Rowan Leach)
