“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon
My version. . .my first boyfriend asked me what my goal was in life. I said ‘to be happy’ to which he replied, ‘That’s not enough. Think bigger.”
I think John Lennon and I got it right though.
What’s bigger than happiness?
And today I am feeling very happy because it’s the two-year anniversary of this blog.
Who knew when I shipped this baby thanks to Seth Godin’s Linchpin, that two years would go by so quickly?
Two years of dealing with my lizard brain, who would no doubt still have me dreaming of ‘someday’ becoming a writer.
Two years of learning things I thought beyond my scope of capability; so many late nights challenged by technology and resistance.
Two years of laughter and memories and love; connecting with the most amazing folks on the planet.
Because of you.
Sure, I may have kept writing if you hadn’t been here but I’m not so sure I would have covered some of the issues that have come up. Nor would I have I begun dreaming bigger, more delicious dreams.
YOU kept showing up, inspiring ideas and fueling my passion, so that I ended up stretching way beyond what I first imagined.
So. Freakin’. Happy.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
And because I want to thank you with more than words, I’m inviting you to a 30 minute coaching session.
A gift from me to you. No strings, no agenda.
Just my deepest thanks for being here.
