Rough seas these past few weeks. In a fit of bad head space, I took down all posts, deleted my Tumblr, stayed away from Twitter for a bit. I could give any number of reasons: feeling vulnerable, bad medication set, etc… Truth is, I’ve been going through a patch that we all go through: money problems, family drama, huge case of self doubt.
And then something happened.
I received an invite to an event, “Be Awesome”, on Facebook. What started as a quasi-joke from one man amongst his friends blossomed into over 1000 people “attending”, sharing on the page what in their life was awesome, or how they were awesome. It gave me hope when, quite frankly, I was a bit lacking & contemplating irreversible actions.
So I made a magnet. And then I made more. Had a brainstorm. Gained some hope. Laughed a little. Made more magnets. Sold some, even. Hooray hope.
One person can make a difference. It happens all the time. You just don’t hear about it often enough. Thank you, Michael Gentz & your band of Awesome for pulling me back from the edge.
