EP23: The Purpose of Graceful Revolution in Changing Times with Melissa Bird

EP23: The Purpose of Graceful Revolution in Changing Times with Melissa Bird

You are here on earth for a purpose. The way you are, who you are, and what you have to offer. Do one thing every day that scares you. If you haven't been living by that mantra for decades, you're missing the opportunity to engage in something every day that can push you outside of your comfort zone.

In this week’s episode, you’ll learn about:

  • The purpose of the graceful revolution

Part One of ‘The Purpose of Graceful Revolution in Changing Times with Melissa Bird’

Dr. Melissa Bird has given hundreds of speeches and workshops across the country, including speaking to audiences at University of Missouri School of Social Work, Oregon State University, Portland State University Women in Leadership, National Association of Perinatal Social Workers, First Congregational United Church of Christ, and Episcopal Church of the Good Samaritan. 

Her combination of education, real-life experience, and practical advice makes her a powerful force of change in the lives of the people she speaks to. Past audience members have described her as "fierce," "revelatory," "life-changing," "enthusiastic," and "inspirational." As a life coach, author, and fiery public speaker, Dr. Bird creates the genesis for a new brand of leadership and graceful revolution. 

Her words awaken revolutionaries, trailblazers, and powerful innovators in the quest for justice. When she's not building her public speaking business, she can be found reading trashy novels, drinking fine whiskey, playing mom to three delicious humans, and loving her punk rock scientist James Thomas Kelly.

“We can indeed find a way to graceful revolution.” - Lia Dunlap (17:48-17:52)

Every successful business owner out there went through different struggles before they took their business to where it is today. So, the graceful revolution was another download that Melissa was given back in 2014. 

It is about a new brand of advocacy where we engage in acts of a graceful revolution that bring light to the reality of people's lives. And this all came to her in a dream. 

And the way it connects into a natural born rebel is that it's really about engaging people in their own spaces. It's about telling the stories of our lives and how our lives can impact each other.

Part Two of ‘The Purpose of Graceful Revolution in Changing Times with Melissa Bird’

Graceful revolution is about learning how systems work so that we can infiltrate membranes of power and shift the power dynamics so that more people can lovingly engage in their communities.

“Follow your unique purpose in life.” - Lia Dunlap (17:16-17:17)


The graceful revolution is about taking our experiences and making sure that people who are in positions of power, whatever that power might be, hear them so that they know that the decisions they're making directly impact people's lives. 

There is no better moment than right now for this to happen. Thus, she had held that vision of the graceful revolution for a long time.
