The weekend has left me speechless and more than a little tired. The hardest part for me was walking into a crowd of 1,000 strangers and MINGLING. Wow, that took a lot out of me. But I am so happy I sucked it up! I heard from incredibly amazing individuals. Do you know Brene Brown? Well, check her out. She has a TED talk too! There was this guy! Oh man, what a story. I gave up my birthday for Charity Water. You can too! The host of the event was this very generous man! At the end of the conference, he gave EVERY member of the audience a $100 bill to go out into the world and make real change with real action. I feel the responsibility of such a gesture and am busy forming the concrete way in which I will offer this gift to the world. I also heard from these lovely people:
Jennifer Lee, oh man she helped me so much to get my vision clear!
There was this couple. LOVE them.
And bless this woman. I think I have found my inner introvert and have been playing the part of an extrovert all of these years. Really. Really.
There were so many more, people I met in line for the toilet, the young girl I chatted with while eating grilled cheese sandwiches as she told me about traveling around Asia, there were the numerous coaches, writers, bloggers, free thinkers, open hearters. Come next year, you will not be disappointed!
