Whether we own them or not, we bring to our work conscious and subconscious beliefs, attitudes, suppositions and feelings that impact our writing, the people we work with, and the outcome. The energy with which we plan a project and write proposals shines through in the document whether we acknowledge it or not. Love, beauty, and grace are the intangible threads that make our world glisten. They are present in every work of art, act of kindness or courageous stand for justice.
When we develop grant proposals within a context of love and beauty, they are embedded with a grace that speaks to the heart of natural allies who resonate with your heart’s yearnings for the world. We can consciously pay attention to who we are being and what energy we generate as we develop a project so that the proposal is imbued with our most loving selves. When you love what you’re doing it shines through in your writing - and vice versa. If you can feel yourself becoming exhausted and losing passion - you must slow down and replenish yourself.
