My name is Louise Robinson and I am the Creative Director of Step Out!
For years I have been conjuring up ideas and working on developing my skills to bring to you my dream; a world where people step out of fear, and into their true selves. My vision for Step Out! started to form when I realized the negative impacts technology has had on society. Don’t get my wrong there is a lot of positives to technology, such as being able to connect with people all over the world, but is that connection real? Well yes it can be real, but to me feels limiting and synthetic. I personally am quite a tactile person and an extravert, so I know that I need to be in person with people to truly feel connected, and I know that there are many others that feel the same.
So after I realized that I wanted to start my own business, and bring my passions to my community, I couldn’t move forward with it. Why? Fear. Fear of not being good enough, fear of not having enough money, fear of being unsuccessful. I needed to step out of my comfort zone if I was ever going to bring my vision to fruition. So what did I do. Drugs. Yes, that’s right. For many years I have escaped as I felt the world was a horrible place, and I wasn’t good enough to be apart of it. But that was all about to change. I needed to stop escaping and lean into my fears, and I did this through introspection. I began reflecting every morning for 10-20 minutes. At first it was horrible, felt like I wasn’t doing it right, and was focused on how I couldn’t stop thinking. Well now years into this rhythm, I have come to a place of self acceptance, and as a result I feel the power that lives within me, as it does in all living beings. So now I am able to bring the Step Out! movement to my community, and in the future, the world.
Will you Step Out! with me?
