Here’s the thing about #magic: it takes SO many different forms. The word is thrown around, it has less merit that it deserves, or sometimes, more. There’s illusion, street magic, and then there’s that serendipitous moment separate of the trained magicians or pros when you, as a human, as a professional, as a creative, are in your ZONE. You’re in the right place, at the right time, with the right people, and everything feels right. Or maybe, it even feels a little elevated. A little magical.
But the truth is that there is a magic in following your heart, playing to your strengths and believing in yourself. Believing SO whole heatedly, that others can’t help but want to support your magic or bring out their own. That, in it’s core, is what I believe. I also believe that people believe in magic more then they want to lead on. They believe that amazingness can happen. They want it to, because it gives them hope. It’s why they root for the underdogs, the comeback kid.
I’m reflective thinking about how much has changed in my life this past year and my return to @electric_forest to work with the marketing and media team. #EF as a tentpole event, makes me see how much more sure of myself and this path I am, one year in. EF 2017 was one of the most impactful and inspiring moments of my entire career, and it has shaped and is continuing to shape @ideaison, what we become, our mission, our vision, and the type of work we want to do and be known for. We often refer to these environments as dart boards. Not even dart we throw is meant to hit a bullseye, but the greater the darts, the greater the board, the sharper the darts- we’ll, the more likely the chances are for us to hit it and make an impact.
This past year, the opportunities at hand, the chances we took, they changed and grew because I believed they could change. I believed I could, we could, and I still do. I believe in the power of relentless magic. So, I know I’ll find it. And if there’s anywhere to find it, it’s in the Sherwood Forest.
