I do something stupid and you’re all there for me.
I am incredibly humbled and grateful to be a part of this community. I
have had an outpouring of support and suggestions, ideas and offerings,
since I decided to do this crazy thing and put it all out to my social
network. To those who took the time to read my post, thank you. For
those who took the time to post their thoughts, bless you. For those
who took the time to send thoughts and encouragement via IM, text
messages, twitter, blogs, phone calls and even telepathy, you have
absolutely no idea what it means to have others encourage your
half-baked plans (or actions in the absence of plans…?)
discussion, through so many avenues of dialogue, have really released
an amazing amount of energy and insight as to where my focus should be.
I did not have this at 7:30 this morning when I started this post. I’m
ripping things apart, and it’s a mess. But as my friend Allan says,
“it’s one hot mess” and that’s really good. You are an amazing
community, and you are my community (even without beer). There
is an amazing feeling that comes from meeting you guys and keeping you
with me via social networking. I am thrilled that my risk of engaging
in social media to ask for help did not fail me. I believe engagement
— and community — is incredibly powerful. You guys RAWK. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am humbled.
