Today my guest is Elle Luna. Elle is a designer, painter and writer. On April 8, 2013, Elle published an essay on Medium.com, “The Crossroads of Should and Must,” which quickly went viral. Within weeks, it was tweeted to over 5 million people and seen by over a quarter of a million readers. Elle extended that post into an illustrated, four color book, The Crossroads of Should and Must: Find and Follow Your Passion, where she explains the importance of mistakes, of “unlearning,” of solitude, of keeping moving and of following a soul path. She was also a featured speaker at Emerging Women Live in October in San Francisco.
In today’s episode, Elle and I spoke about:
- Dreams: How to use them as signposts of what to go after in the “real world”
- What Elle means by Should and Must, and how to make decisions toward Must
- Her belief that there is a rise of spirit and emergence going on right now in the collective
- How Must is not quite a decision, but rather… well, a must
Here is my conversation “Should vs. Must: A Daily Practice of Following Your Heart” with the inspirational artist Elle Luna.
