It started as a Facebook Share, I really couldn’t stop thinking about how it (the Manifesto) and I had the same philosophy.  Then I searched for the words outside of the Facebook photo, found the posters, then found the video. I tagged people I know and love on particular lines throughout the Manifesto and received amazing feedback. I read it again. I watched the video again…then posted the video…then watched the video again.

My life, my travels, my spirituality, my need to give and receive, my need for love, my inner “little Chrysty,” my drive and ambition, my zest for living all gravitated towards the words on paper. I wanted to share the philosophy so I bought 5 posters (one for me and 4 for my group of “girls” who came together when one of us got cancer 9 years ago)…we like to say we’re a circle of SIX (even though there are only 5 of us) because that 6th person is ANYONE and EVERYONE who needs the strength of a group of amazing women!

The Holstee Manifesto gives me hope and encouragement and reminds me to LIVE MY LIFE OUT LOUD!

The world would be a better place if we all lived and loved in the Holstee manner.  I am grateful for EACH and every person who has crossed my path; and I will continue to find value in each and every one.
