ONE QUESTION, A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE

World Peace Process

LEARN, LISTEN AND UNDERSTAND,

Ask yourself, the person next to you and the person you’ve never met before “How is it to be you?” and learn from your similarities as well as your differences.

World Peace Process

SO YOU CAN FIND YOUR PEACE,

Recognise your own patterns, (emotional) walls, and prejudices and get inspired to accept or dissolve them; creating inner peace one babystep at a time.

SPREAD THAT AROUND,

Smile at the lady in the street, step aside on the pavement, give that homeless man a dollar…just because you can…and because you recognise they are human too…

World Peace Process

AND LET THE WORLD BENEFIT.

What if…we would all be just a little bit kinder to ourselves and each other…just a teeny tiny little bit…wouldn’t that, ultimately, bring a whole lot more peace in the world?

That’s right; we’re in the business of world peace! Because somebody has to, right? Of course there’s no use trying to boil all 5 oceans in 1 go…so our strategy is to make it happen 1 individual and 1 ‘simple’ question at a time.

Call it grass roots. Or bottom-up. Or inside-out. It doesn’t matter; what it is, is us taking responsibility for our own happiness and through that for the happiness of the world as a whole.

| ASK, LISTEN & LEARN

We would like to challenge you to ask “How is it to be you?” 4 separate times:

  1. Ask yourself (and share your story if you’d like)
  2. Ask someone close to you
  3. Ask someone you know but usually don’t have intimate conversations with
  4. Ask a stranger

That’s it…there are no time constraints…no desired outcomes…no judgments…just the question and the conversation that follows…

Asking “How is it to be you?” is not about trying to wiggle your way into the deepest crevices of someone’s soul…it’s simply about having a meaningful conversation. Just sit, listen, and keep an open heart and mind all throughout!

The Awesome Lessons I Learned From Being Stood Up, Ghosted And Downright Rejected…

I've been ghosted the other day. Stood up, ignored, pariah’d, the thing Amish folk do to people who break their church vows. And I've had a hard time dealing with it... Let's start by saying [...]

How To Take A Compliment With Grace. And Really Truly Mean It!

Here’s What Happens When An Extraverted Introvert Pushes Her Boundaries A Little Too Far

I really do consider myself an introvert. And a highly sensitive one at that. But, I'm also ever so curious about life and places and people and love the sense of adventure and excitement that [...]

Write down your words, upload a song, share you heart with poetry, or express yourself through visual art; everything, around the context of ‘How it is to be you’ is welcome!

| PEOPLE’S STORIES

To inspire you, to move you, to lift you up, and to let you know you’re definitely not the only one in the whole wide world who feels ‘that’ way…

These are ‘How Is It To Be You?’ stories gathered from people all over the world.

This is not about rescuing stray cats and dogs from every street corner, protesting the establishment, or having to become supernice and social if that’s just not your thing… It’s about finding your own good vibes so you can let them spread to others.

| ABOUT THE PROJECT

Linda CoussementThis is me, Linda Coussement, and I’m slowly traveling all around the world to talk to people, make (photo and video) portraits, and write about all things ‘How it is to be you’ (and that includes a novel).

The project does not have a defined set of boundaries or even a plan…instead, I try to keep an open mind and heart all along the way and let things evolve and grow organically.

Want to know more? Check out this page. Have you got any ideas on how to make the project bigger and bolder? Get in touch and let’s chat!
